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.
