Officially published my CakePHP Book
Published on May 19, 2011 by Jamie MunroFinally! It has been a long time in the making, but my book is finally finished and published! About two years ago, I began the undertaking of writing a book. At the time it was merely a hobby while I was working on my blog. Seeing if I could turn the success of my blog articles into a book.
As you may recall a few months ago, I released an e-book. This e-book was basically my original works written for CakePHP 1.2. I saw some success with the e-book, so that made me believe that I should seek publishing on my book. Unfortunately, there isn't much hope for mainstream success with a big publisher like O'Reilly because CakePHP is too small of a niche for them to focus on.
During this time, I focused on upgrading the book to be relevant to CakePHP 1.3. I even added a special bonus chapter about upgrading from CakePHP 1.2 to 1.3, which I must say was extremely painless; especially if you stick with the standards.
Anyways, I hope you take the opportunity to view my CakePHP book.
