I've used the Yii PHP framework for more than a year now. It's a relatively new framework for developing web applications, built around the Model-View-Controller pattern, as many frameworks today. Packt Publishing sent me the electronic book "Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook" for a review. This is the second book published by Packt regarding Yii. The first one was "Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5".
The book is written by a Yii core developer, Alexander Makarov, and contains more than 80 solutions to commonly faced problems, hence the title "Cookbook". The fact that is written by one of the core Yii developers surely makes it more than worth reading, you are sure to receive some very good tips with your Yii development.
A sample chapter can be downloaded here.
So, stay tuned for the upcoming full review of the book.
