There are currently only two books published about Codeigniter available in the market, one is called CodeIgniter for Rapid PHP Application Development and the other is this one I'm reviewing.
Having being using Codeigniter for a few simple projects, and really consider myself a CI newbie, I scooped up this book when I saw in at my local library, hoping for more insights into this wonderful framework. Instead I was left disappointed.
Written by Thomas Myer, this book has 10 chapters that walks the reader through the world of Codeigniter programming. It takes a unique approach of showcasing a client-programmer scenario. Throughout the chapters, you'll be peppered with meetings with a hypothetical business owner named Claudia, who wants to build an online shopping site. You will get to witness the whole development cycle from gathering requirements to launching the end product.
