CodeIgniter Testing Guide - A New Book for Automated Testing

#1
[2016/01/23 update]
This book was offically released. Now you can read the whole book.

Hi there,

I've started work on a new book for CodeIgniter community - CodeIgniter Testing Guide.

Do you interested in the book?

The planned table of contents is posted in the description over at CodeIgniter Testing Guide.
I would like to hear your thoughts on what's missing or if there are planned portions that are not needed.

And I want someone to proofread it, because my English is not good.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I would be happy to help with proofreading, as I'm very interested in improving (or in some areas just implementing) tests on my own site.

Thank you! and good timing.

You must be an English native speaker. So you must be good at English.
I'll send you private message to talk about how to do in a few days.

And as you see, Mat Whitney joined the book!

The plan is to release the book for initial sale once Chapter 4 is done.
And the release will be really soon.

Are you from japan dude?
Me from Philippines.

I think in your front cover book, you should include the version that your book is in focus.
Because I think the up-coming version 4.0 will be a different environment setup If I'm not mistaken.
Also will the book has an Amazon's Kindle version? This will be a good option so I can save more bucks.
Don't forget to make the price affordable.

@kilishan
Is CodeIgniter 4.0 will have a built-in php-unit or codeception? coz laravel has.
Is CodeIgniter 3.0 all of it's files and folder testable?, I think this is one of the major flaws in CodeIgniter 2.0,
If I'm not mistaken.

@mwhitney
Nice to see you are aboard the boat.
the book will be highly respected because of you.

Yup, I'm from Japan.

The book cover is a problem. I need a nice design, but there is not yet.
I need a good designer. :-)

We use CodeIgniter 3.0 in the book, because 4.0 does not exist yet.

I have no plan Amazon's Kindle version now. I don't say anything now.

I know how to use Adobe Photoshop.
Perhaps I can help you design the front cover.
Just give me your idea.
By the way I'm doing this for free also.
