Book of the Week : Real-World Solutions for Developing High-Quality PHP Frameworks and Applications
This book catches my attention because I am in the process of developing PHP Framework for my Application Platform.
Written by the creator of PHPUnit, the de facto PHP Unit Testing framework, Sebastian Bergmann.
Finally a book written for serious PHP application developers. This book really gets it. Using Test-Driven Development from the very first chapter, the book explains practical TDD such as using in-memory databases. There are clear examples of stubs and mocks. Caring so much about TDD, this book also teaches how to write proper Object-oriented Code, utilizing proven best practices and design patterns.
Naturally, being written by the creator of PHP Unit Testing, it begins with Test Driven Development and focus Unit Testing.
Not everyone will be interested in this book, but as I learned more and more about Unit Testing, the more I want to implement Unit Testing into my PHP applications.
