Premium books and courses to grow your web development skills
If you want more than individual tutorials and videos, if you want to dive really deep into a specific topic in one central location, then check out the premium books and courses below.
They'll help you build your skills in an ever-increasing range of web-development skills. They cover Docker Compose, the Mezzio Framework, PhpStorm, the Zend Framework, Zend Db (now laminas-db), Slim PHP, and SPL Iterators — with more titles to come.
Deploy With Docker Compose
This is a free book and course showing you the
essentials of how to develop and deploy applications with Docker. You'll learn how to develop, test,
and debug your applications, debug containers when they don't work properly, and deploy your code to
production (or anywhere else).
Mezzio Essentials teaches the fundamentals of PHP’s
leading development framework, the fundamentals that you need to know so that you can begin building
applications right away. It’s a practical, hands-on approach which shows you enough of how Mezzio is
put together as well as how to use it, while not getting lost in things that aren’t generally
Want to get started the right way with Zend Framework
2? This book gives you the best start by focusing on the key information you need to know. From
views, controllers, actions, modules, and configuration, to the key patterns which underpin Zend
Framework 2. This book gets you off to the right start, with a tight focus on what you need to know,
packed with best-practices and hands-on tips.
Getting up and running with PHP’s Mezzio framework doesn’t need to be a daunting task.
In this course, Mezzio: Getting Started, you’ll learn how to build applications using the Mezzio
framework for PHP.
First, you’ll get set up and ready to go with the tools that you need. Next, you’ll get an overview
of the framework’s core concepts and components.
Finally, you’ll learn how to build an increasingly sophisticated application using the
When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of the Mezzio framework
needed to build powerful and robust web-based applications.
SQL is an essential skill in developing modern web
applications. This course will teach you how to generate SQL for manipulating schemas and extracting
data in an object-oriented, nearly hassle-free manner using the Zend\Db library.
Codebases are becoming ever larger and ever more sophisticated. This leads to greater demands on us, as developers, both to familiarize ourselves with codebases and to be efficient with them.
PhpStorm dramatically reduces these demands by providing a large array of features, such as code navigation, intelligent code completion, refactoring, and more. In this course, for Envato Tuts+, you get a rapid introduction to PhpStorm and some of the key features which it offers.
In PHP, we’re all familiar with the foreach, for, do-while, and while looping constructs, which help us quickly and easily iterate over data structures in our applications.
But did you know that they’re just the tip of the iceberg, and that you can use these constructs in a much more powerful way?
In this course, for Envato Tuts+, you’ll get an introduction to SPL iterators, and learn how to create iterator classes which allow you to use the looping constructs to iterate over your data in a more powerful, more flexible, and more elegant way than you’ve done before.
Along the way, you’ll build a simple static site generator which reads markdown from a filesystem directory listing and creates hydrated value objects which model the data they contain.
