HASH(0x9823df18) out of 5 stars BEGINNERS BEWARE - Riddled with typos and errors April 3 2010
By B. Mulligan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There aren't a lot of CodeIgniter books, and I got this as a fairly new beginner. I had watched Jeffrey Way's free CodeIgniter From Scratch video tutorials (which are amazing - [...]) but wanted to dive deeper so got this book.

I have two main issues with this book, and I'll try to be brief.

1) It's RIDDLED with errors and typos. Honestly, I feel like every few pages, there is information that is just wrong. Variables with the wrong names, commas where there should be periods, etc.. I have enough programming experience to notice when something is off, but a beginner will be very very confused. It's awful, and makes the book very hard to read.

2) Just when they start to dig deep, they refer you to the CodeIgniter User Guide (which is also comprehensive and amazing - [...]). They do it all the time. It seems like instead of doing the real work and writing a 500 page book covering ALL of CodeIgniter, they write 30% of what they need to and encourage the reader to "learn more" by reading the user guide. It gets really old, and I'd much prefer a comprehensive book rather than a cursory overview.

I'm sorry for the bad review, but I don't feel like it's a book worth reading. I haven't read any of the other CI books, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I've read a lot of programming books in the past and they have all be more clear, correct, and comprehensive than this one.

HASH(0x981b2c54) out of 5 stars Bad book on codeigniter June 28 2010
By Gary Fang - Published on
Format: Paperback
You'll have an easier time reading and understanding about Codeigniter from the manual than this book. Many times, I had to refer back to the manual to understand what the author was talking about. Plus lots of errors and lack of examples.

HASH(0x9813fde0) out of 5 stars Great book, sometimes a little confusing.. April 3 2010
By txmail - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great reference book not only to read while away from your computer but also to keep next to the keyboard as you are developing. I typically do not read these types of books cover to cover but being new to the whole MVC concept had me reading most of the book page by page. The MVC design principals discussed are balanced in the fact that they show you why the MVC design is better then most ad-hoc systems. The Active Record class implementation should be reason enough to use the framework on any PHP site that uses CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) / databases in general.

The sometimes confusing part of my title comes in to play when skimming over the book, it seems like they reference things a few pages back which means you have to backtrack to understand where the example or corresponding part is at (if you read page to page this will probably not be a problem). Overall a highly recommended framework and book!

HASH(0x9866ceac) out of 5 stars Well written. March 19 2010
By HappyChickenLogistics - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this mainly because I found myself away from the computer often but I still wanted to learn how to use the framework when I couldn't use the computer.

The writing is well done and I think this is a great resource for anyone who is somewhat new to Codeigniter, PHP, or MVC (or at least Codeigniter's version of it). While a lot of the information contained within can be easily obtained online, this book does a great job of explaining things clearly and providing nice examples and walkthroughs.

If you are a more advanced user then this book might not be for you. Once you start delving into some of the more advanced portions of Codeigniter you will quickly find yourself searching for more answers online, although it is hard to fault this book for not covering everything.

Overall a nice resource to have.

I highly recommend this book. its a great resource to get you started with CI. Yes there are typos, but the knowledge you get from this book is so great, you yourself will see all the typos. I recommend it !
