Rumbelow Publishes Volume Two of CodeIgniter Handbook Series

On September 3rd, Jamie Rumbelow published the second in his series of CodeIgniter handbooks, with the emphasis of volume two being API design. Here is the author’s press release:

Earlier this year I wrote and released The CodeIgniter Handbook - Vol. 1 - Who Needs Ruby? to critical acclaim. It’s been several months since the release of Volume One and everybody’s support, feedback and enthusiasm has been absolutely wonderful. To everyone who has purchased a copy, thank you.

I’m thrilled to announce that Vol. 2 - API Design, was released last week and is now available to purchase in PDF or Paperback. To whet your appetite, here’s the blurb:

The CodeIgniter Handbook, a three-volume handbook full to the brim with pragmatic, succinct, useful information from one of the web’s pioneering developers. Learn about the whats & whys of writing cleaner, more concise code. Discover fascinating new techniques that allow you to remove duplication, increase your programming efficiency, and reduce those repetitive tasks. Fall in love with CodeIgniter all over again.

In today’s world the focus in web development has firmly shifted from isolated systems to interconnected networks of applications, all talking to each other in real time. CodeIgniter’s flexibility makes it very easy to create Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and allow your applications to chat to each other.

In this book, you’ll learn the principles behind modern RESTful API design as well as a bunch of helpful implementation details, such as how to version your APIs, how to use HTTP to specify content types and how to extend and debug your APIs with useful homegrown tools.

We’ll be adding support for ePubs to both titles very shortly, so keep an eye out for that.

Please please please go and purchase a copy of The CodeIgniter Handbook. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

Volume one, “Who Needs Ruby?” was published Febuary 18th, 2012 and is also available at efendi books.
