My new job now has me working in a much larger server farm and so now instead of handling 10,000 users I’m handling many more times that. This book will build on my background and make my queries work better in a distributed environment.
Here’s an excerpt from the book:
“Why ‘symfony‘ and not ‘FooBarFramework’? Because Fabien wanted a short name containing an s, as in Sensio, and an f, as in framework–easy to remember and not associated with another development tool. Also, he doesn’t like capital letters. symfony was close enough, even if not completely English, and it was also available as a project name. The other alternative was ‘baguette’.“
I felt kinda weird looking though the Teen section at Barns & Noble. This young blond girl giving me a look half of astonishment and half annoyance as I made room for her to go by before picking up the book. I ignored her and made my way to the front of the store to check out.
And Indian woman in a blue blouse showing one shoulder smiled at me sheepishly as I politely smiled an nodded. Her eyes darted to what was in my hands and she then rolled her eyes – she purposefully did not make any eye contact.
As I checked out the clerk noticing my uneasiness said, “Don’t worry, you haven’t lost your man card just yet.”
So far its an easy read. I wished I read this in high-school; boy never knew girls noticed the smallest things about you – I’m still oblivious to all that.
Its amazing coming back and reading this book again after so many years. I remember the first time I read this in 2002 having alot of this gloss over my head and now many of these design patterns are second nature – I couldn’t think of designing any type of OO software without these patterns.
