Brilliantly written guide for programmers new to PHP & MySQL,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: PHP and MySQL Web Development, w. CD-ROM (Taschenbuch)
This book is targeted at the reader who has some elementary programming knowledge and intermediate HTML skills, due to the terminology used and the examples given. The book is best utilized by someone who really wants to learn the subjects covered, PHP and MySQL. This is one of those books that you should read from cover-to-cover. It's not a command reference, but you get real-world examples of how the commands work together, which in itself is something that most reference books do not offer. The chapters are smartly laid out in a way that makes the reader feel a sense of accomplishment after completing each chapter, and that encourages the reader to continue. Welling and Thomson take a very unique classroom-style approach to teaching the reader how to accomplish different tasks with PHP and MySQL. They start off with the basics and work their way up to more complicated tasks. At no point did I feel lost, because every new page builds upon the precepts learned on previous pages. This is a big book, and will probably take some time to read from cover to cover, but there is very little "fluff". Every page has something important to teach. There was only one typo that I caught in this entire book. It's on page 21. Overall, this book has astounded me. When I ordered this book, I had some practice playing with PHP, but I knew almost nothing about MySQL. Now I can program shopping carts and interactive web forums, and so on. The great thing about PHP and MySQL together is that they are so flexible. They can be used together to do just about anything you want. The sky's the limit. This book gives you the healthy start you need to writing your own code. It is very well written and should be in the hands of any beginning PHP and MySQL programmer. My compliments go to the Authors, editors and to SAMS press for yet another great volume.
