    Comments about oreilly Up to Speed with PHP 7:

    Disclosure: I was given a copy of this video introduction by the author who I occasionally meet at a technical gathering. He made no attempt to influence me in one way or another.

    David's journalistic background comes through in his well explained and fluently presented review of each new notable aspect of PHP 7. He provides examples of usage, which I found helpful.

    In my experience, having read the books of now many authors over the years, he is one of the more thorough in that he will point out particular problems, links to other aspects of the code, or relevant history or other context.

      Comments about oreilly Up to Speed with PHP 7:

      "Up to Speed With PHP 7" is a material that aims to make PHP 7, the first "Green Version" of PHP an easy one to migrate to, and I bet it achieved just that.

      With a great video and audio quality, David Powers introduces the seventh version of PHP to the intermediate and advanced users of PHP in a very concise and progressively easy to comprehend way. It is a great material that deserves a place in your video libraries
