“The Yii Book (2nd Edition)” Version 1.6 Posted

August 28, 2016

I just posted the third update of the second edition of “The Yii Book“. This update brings this edition of the book to 365 pages, with two more revised chapters, getting to a total of 14, and completing Part II of the book. (I’m a little bit farther along than that, but thought Part II a logical place to do this release.)

Specific release notes are:

  • Updated Chapters 13 and 14 for Yii 2
  • Took almost all new images
  • Fixed all the errors found in previous releases

This particular update took forever, mostly because the involved subjects–extensions and JavaScript–changed dramatically in Yii 2. I also methodically resolved all the errors and issues in the 300 pages of book that had been released previously.

I have learned that if I ever do another self-published book it won’t be 600+ pages long. 

I also formally moved the “free updates until date” to the end of 2017. I did this not because I think the second edition will take that long but rather to make it clear that all foreseeable updates I have planned will be free to anyone that has already purchased the book or is about to.

There are seven chapters in Part III of the book, which I’ll probably release in two updates. The final book section has three chapters, which will be the 2.0 update. There are no timelines as to when I’ll have those done (I hoped to have them done a million years ago), but I’m spending as much time on my evenings, weekends, holidays, etc. as I can on them.

As always, thanks for your interest in what I do!
