Your purchase includes access to all of the source code used to power the GameNomad website.
To paraphrase the ancient adage, "An example is worth 1,000 words". When I set out to write an introductory book to the Zend Framework, I wanted to accompany the instruction with a thematic example which would not only keep the reader engaged, but which also incorporates many features which are found in modern websites. That example turned out to be GameNomad.
Many of GameNomad's features are described in Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework, complete with a contextual description and sample code. Among the many topics covered you'll learn how to:
Remember that the primary goal of Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework is to help you master the Zend Framework, and not necessarily to build a social networking website for video gamers. Therefore not every GameNomad feature is covered in painstaking detail.

Following a few rounds of eBook feedback, a print book will be made available for sale via WJGilmore.com, Amazon.com, and other online outlets. Owners of the eBook will have the opportunity to purchase the print book via WJGilmore.com at a very special price.
