I have had several requests for early access to my new book, “Modernizing Legacy Applications in PHP,” as it is being written. I’m happy to say that as of today, that wish is granted. You can purchase the book in its ongoing state at leanpub.com/mlaphp for the low-low price of $39 ($49 recommended).

Once purchased, each new update to the book is free. The book has not yet had the benefit of formal editing, and is only about 35% complete at this point. But at 60+ pages, it already has a ton of valuable material. You can see what I mean by reading the free sample chapter.

After you purchase the book, please feel free to provide feedback! You can reach me on Twitter @pmjones. I’ll do what I can to include suggested improvements in future releases.

You can read more about the book and sign up for the mailing list at mlaphp.com. Also, if you are professional reviewer and want to write a review of the early-access version, be sure to contact me for a coupon to get a review copy.

Are you stuck with a legacy PHP application? You should buy my book because it gives you a step-by-step guide to improving you codebase, all while keeping it running the whole time.
