I started reading the Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook, written by Alexandar Makarov, a month back and it turned out to be a very nice and well-structured read.

There are 13 chapters in the book, covering majority of the important features and aspects of Yii Framework, including topics like URL Routes, AJAX and jQuery, Database & Active Record, Forms, Modules, Components, Widgets, and also some Testing, Performance, and Security related examples, which are ready-to-use in PHP-based we
Yii Cookbook by Alexander Makarov

After reading “The Definitive Guide to Yii” (provided with the framework) and starting some basic applications with Yii, I thought it was time for me to explore Yii some more and get most out of it. As part of a promotion program of Packt Publishing, I was able to get a free review copy of the eBook “Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook” by Alexander Makarov. This review consist of three parts; a short summary of the book, some pros and cons and my final conc

I you're learning Yii framework this book is a 'must read'. After I learned about it, I bough it strait away and just couldn't wait for it to be finished (it was a preorder). Even after reading Web Application Development with Yii and PHP and Yii framework definitive guide I still got a lot of ideas of how my code can be improved and great features I could use in it. The book is very easy to read and follow with examples. Almost every recipe tough me something new and greatly improved my knowled ...more

nice cook book for good framework
The cookbook covers practical Yii application development tips which will help you develop better applications, and it also has recipes for important Yii features which are very useful to know.

The book is written by Alexander Makarov who is an experienced engineer from Russia and has been a Yii framework core team member since 2010. He also was the technical reviewer for three other books related to Yii, so you can be sure the cookbook is written by someone who knows inner workings of Yii framew

DISCLAIMER: I got a free review copy of the eBook version of “Yii Application Development Cookbook - Second Edition” from the publisher.

This Yii cookbook is intended for PHP developers that are already familiar with the framework. Its 13 independent chapters feature 90 recipes grouped by framework feature or concept.

This edition corrects the errata found in the first one (and adds a few), and uses a more readable monospace font for code listings and code words. Compared to the first edition, all
I received a free copy of this book to make a review and here it is.

This book contains about 90 code recipes to use Yii in an efficient, clean and maintainable way. Each recipe has a short explanation of what the recipe does, a step by step guide of the code recipe, an explanation of how the recipe works and related recipes within the book. Some recipes also includes complementary code related to it and additional information with text and links.

All the chapters in this book contain recipes rela

After four years working with Zend Framework, I discovered Yii Framework in one of its first releases. At that time the framework had much to grow, but still made my productivity go to the stars. Combining the velocity and easiness of Yii and Zend powerful components, my life as a developer became much better than before.

This book gave me some refreshing airs on Yii, reviewing lots of components I didn't know or didn't use in their full potential, reading with the safety of relying in one of the

An complete work of this amazing framework. Contains practical examples and tips hard to find in the forums.

Could talk more about scopes, but this detail does not remove the importance of this book.

I suggest to anyone who wants to learn or increase your knowledge of the framework. Required reading for beginners and advanced users.
