Web application developers that are wrangling Yii 1.1 and PHP5 now have a new resource, written by Control Group’s Director of Application Development (and spiritual dev leader and all around great guy), Jeff Winesett. The book, Agile Web Application Development with Yii 1.1 and PHP5, was published last week and is currently the #9 bestseller on Amazon’s books in the “PHP” category – especially good for a PHP framework that has so little coverage among PHP frameworks. One five-star review on Amazon says it is “a very quick path to Yii proficiency.”
Jeff has been a big part of the brains behind many of the more sophisticated applications for our clients, such as Firebrand, IMG Fashion Week and Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Buy his book — and feel free to congratulate Jeff in the comments.
