Top Books about Zend Framework 3

In this post I want to provide a collection of books on Zend Framework 3 with their brief descriptions, advantages/disadvantages. This list is not yet complete, because ZF3 was released not so long ago, and more books will be released later. I plan to update this list once I discover a new ZF3 book. OK, let’s go!

1. Using Zend Framewrork 3 by Oleg Krivtsov (For beginners, Free)

Using Zend Framework 3 is a free and open-source book about the new version of Zend Framework. This book has a lot of code samples (hosted on GitHub) and is positioned as a book for beginners. Simple things go first in a chapter, which makes it easier to read this book for newbies. This book covers most important ZF3 usage topics like: main ZF3 components, MVC design pattern, what is service manager, how to use forms, how to manage database. This book is closely related with such third-party libraries as Doctrine ORM and Twitter Bootstrap.

2. Web Development with Zend Framework 3 by Michael Romer (A work in progress)

This is a new edition of the Web Development with Zend Framework series by Michael Romer. This book’s goal is to make it easier for you to get started with ZF3. This book is currently a work in progress.
