“The Yii Book” Now Available

October 31, 2012
The Yii Book If you like my writing on the Yii framework, you'll love "The Yii Book"!

I am very happy to say that, after much delay, “The Yii Book: Developing Web Applications Using the Yii PHP Framework”, is now available for sale. The book has its own home at yii.larryullman.com.

Everything you need to know should be on those pages, but the most important information is probably:

  • The book is currently in version 0.2, which includes the Introduction and Part 1 (four chapters)
  • The book is available in PDF, epub, and mobi formats.
  • You can pay using Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club. (I’ll try to get PayPal integrated soon.)
  • I’m going to be continuing to write the book from now until it’s complete, probably in February 2013. I’ll be publishing updates every 2-3 chapters or so. This is my main priority, and with most of the logistics worked out, progress should go faster.
  • Whenever you buy the book, you’ll continue to be able to get free updates as they are released, including a revision for Yii version 2.
  • The minimum price is $20.00, but you can pay anything you want more than that.

I had a “soft opening” yesterday in order to catch bugs (and I did; lousy bugs). I’m happy to say that 23 orders came since yesterday afternoon, averaging $35.39! My thanks to everyone for their interest in the book and to those that have already ordered.
