Further reading / study guides for Yii and OOP

I have been a casual user of PHP for several years, but not professional.

I am almost done the Agile Web Development with Yii book.

There’s often some parts where I have troubles with and am not really sure how/why things work.

Can anyone recommend further reading or tutorials?

The Yii Guide - http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/guide/ - is the best resource you can ever get. I’ve read couple time but I always find new things to learn from it when I read it again.

The Yii API - http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/api/ - You can dig deeper to see how thing really works in Yii.

The Yii Wiki - http://www.yiiframework.com/wiki/ - Community Tips and Tricks


I guess at this point the best thing is to drill down into each module/component and learn it indepth as I work.

Also, the blog tutorial might show you examples to stuff not shown in the book you’ve read.

That’s a great idea! just what I was looking for.

I’ll run through this and get my confidence up and then start on an ambitious project of my own.
