p. Aaron Wormus, one of the regulars on’s #phpc channel, announced on his blog today that “The PEAR Book is out!”: Aaron talks about the book he co-authored with Stoyan Stefanov, Stephan Schmidt, and Carsten Lucke.

bq. This is a collaboration between Stoyan Stefanov, Stephan Schmidt, Carsten Lucke and me. The original book was conceived way back at IPC2k4 so it’s been in the pipeline for a while now. The book covers different aspects of programming using PEAR, We tried to approach the packages which we featured from a solution-based point of view, so a lot of packages are covered and there is quite a bit of code that you can play with.

p. He also talks about setting up a community wiki for the book. More details on the book can be found in an earlier article “here”: The book’s website can be found “here”: You can order the book from Amazon by clicking “here”:

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
