Thanks for the book

By the way, I just wanted to say thanks…

In spite of the confusion caused by the generated code from Yii 1.1.4 vs the generated code in Yii 1.1.2, there is much to learn in this book. The fact that you have taken the time to actually correct any code that does not match with the newer version of Yii is commendable.

I have a fully completed trackstar application and because of that exercise I have learned to take these lessons and start to use them in real world situations. The most useful points for me have been:

  1. TDD

  2. Fixture data and test databases

  3. Themes & Layouts

  4. Logging

  5. Caching

  6. Performance Tuning

While there is much more for other readers/users I found these topics very useful. Some of the other topics (rules, filters, views, gii, etc…) I had already explored, although not to the extent this book uses them.
