Packt has sent me a complementary copy of the book PHP Team Development written by Samisa Abeysinghe Introduction
The simplicity and ease afforded by scripting languages can lull many aspiring (or even accomplished!) programmers into an unintentionally chaotic development cycle.
This is especially true for languages like PHP: build and compile times are a relic of the past, while loose data type restrictions and relaxed syntax contribute to rapid prototyping.
These attributes of PHP have contributed to its explosive usage growth and have caused its use to expand to full-scale Web applications managed by teams of developers.
It is for this environment that the book PHP Team Development, by Samisa Abeysinghe, is targeted. Both programmers and their managers may benefit from this material.
