About the Bundle

PHP Pandas (PHP7!)
The PHP Programming Language for Everyone.
Now includes updates for PHP 7!
Hey there, beautiful AND / OR handsome soon-to-be developer. Would you like to learn about PHP and pandas? Oh my, are you in for a treat! My name's Dayle, and I like to write technical books for beginners. My books for the Laravel Framework are a fan favourite, and have well over 10,000 readers.
With PHP Pandas, I have decided to try something new. I wanted to write a PHP book that was accessible to everyone, from newcomers to the programming to developers looking to brush up their skills!
My writing style is fun and approachable, and I promise that you'll have a good time reading PHP Pandas. I'd love for PHP Pandas to be the book for learning the PHP programming language. It's the first instalment in a series of books that I like to call “PHP for Everyone”. A journey from humble beginnings, to building large scale PHP application.
If you've got a will to learn PHP, and you don't want to stomach another flat and boring syntax book, then please give PHP Pandas a go! Don't take my word for it, go ahead and check out the sample!
While this book is marked as complete, I'm happy to add more updates to the title to support future learning. Let me know if you feel that anything is missing! There will also be updates for future inclusions to the PHP programming language, and any other goodies that I can think of!
Orchestrating PHP Applications
Composer has changed the face of the PHP world. Never before was open-source more accessible. With this book, you'll learn to leverage the power of open-source libraries and packages in your own applications. Learn how to use the Composer software and the purpose of each command.
Please note that this title is a micro-book (less than 100 pages), and the first of it's kind. Therefore, the price has been altered to match. Future chapters will be added to the title at no extra cost.
If you'd like to support my writing, and learn a little about Composer, then pick up a copy today!
Laravel: Code Smart
The Laravel Framework Version 5 for Beginners
Laravel: Code Smart is the third installment in my 'Code' series of books for the Laravel framework. The 'Code' books have thousands of readers and are considered by many to be the most effective method of learning the Laravel framework. As always, my books serve as both an introduction for beginners, and reference material for more experienced developers. I promise that you're going to love it! You'll be writing Laravel applications in no time.
Code Smart is the true evolution of the 'Code' series. Here are some of the new features.
- Full support for Laravel 5.
- Revamped code examples, with improved highlighting.
- Existing content from Code Bright is refreshed for the new generation of Laravel.
- Code samples now adhere to the PSR-2 coding standard, and use modern PHP features.
- Spelling and grammar have improved tenfold!
- Entirely new introductory and installation chapters. It's now much easier to get started.
- Get started using 'Homestead' to be up and running with Laravel in no time at all.
- A bunch of extra hints and tips scattered throughout the chapters.
- Free beer.
Code Smart will launch with existing Code Bright content revamped, new Laravel 5 chapters, and almost 400 pages. Then it will grow on a weekly basis to become the biggest and greatest resource for learning the Laravel framework. I'm committed to writing at least one new chapter a week. You can vote for the new chapters, by tweeting with the hashtag
If you find any topic confusing, would like something explained in a different way, or would like something added to the book, simply email me! We'll work together to make Code Smart the number one book for the Laravel framework.
Oh. By the way. Did I mention that there are pandas? There are loads of pandas! Buy it now!
Seriously, though. If you decide to buy Code Smart, then you'll be supporting my future career as a technical author. Thanks to each and every one of you.
