About the Book

Please note: This book now is partly outdated, since Zend Framework 2.5 is available. Therefore, I decided to give the book away for free from now on. Happy reading! :-)

"Web Development with Zend Framework 2" is the first and only book about the brand new Zend Framework 2 - it's written for beginners as well as advanced users and it covers the fundamental concepts and brings tons of practical solutions for your daily business. "Web Development with Zend Framework 2" is the translation of the bestselling German book "Webentwicklung mit Zend Framework 2" with hundreds of downloads on Leanpub and Amazon.

Listen to what others say about the book:

"[..] a very good Zend Framework 2 book for beginners and advanced users [..] paves the way to Zend Framework 2. A Must-Have." (woy.ch)

"I just bought it and don't regret a single penny [..]. Yes, it's absolutely worth the money." (zfforum.de)

"Written in a very readable informal way, which makes makes reading fun. Personally, I favor this style of writing over the usual formal way of other development books." (blog.dirk-helbert.de)

Please note: Translation is work-in-progress and not all chapters of the original book are available in English yet. BUY NOW, START READING AND YOU WILL GET ALL UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL CHAPTERS FOR FREE and pushed automatically to your inbox once available.
