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.

A Free Book about Zend Framework

Hi everyone!

I’m pleased to announce that now you can read my new book “Using Zend Framework 3” absolutely for free! Moreover, the book is an open-source project hosted on GitHub, so you are encouraged to contribute. The book source is available by this link.

The “Using Zend Framework 3” book is an adaptation of my previous “Using Zend Framework 2” book.

The new book is designed for beginners. Almost anything is explained in details, and code samples are provided. Samples are stored on GitHub and are available by this link. Each sample is a complete website that you can install on your Apache webserver and see Zend Framework in action.

Hope you’ll enjoy the book!
Oleg Krivtsov
