PHP: Composer

Orchestrating PHP Applications

About the Book

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!
