Summary

This book teaches developers how to build database-driven web applications using two of today's most popular open-source software tools, PHP and MySQL. To get you off to a fast start, the first 6 chapters teach you how to develop, test, and debug your first PHP applications. That includes getting data from MySQL databases and structuring your PHP applications the right way, using the MVC pattern.

Then, Section 2 takes you deeper into PHP, moving from the simple to the complex as it covers the professional skills you'll use every day in coding your applications . . . skills like how to work with form data, dates, arrays, sessions, cookies, functions, objects, and regular expressions, and how to handle exceptions in a way that makes sense to your site visitors. Section 3 then dives into MySQL, teaching you how to design and create a database, as well as giving you more skills for accessing and maintaining database data like a pro.

Finally, Section 4 teaches you the specialized web skills you need for certain web sites, like how to secure web pages, send email, upload files, process images, and access content (like YouTube videos) from other web sites to incorporate into your own. Full coding examples and chapter exercises provide training support throughout. A great read for any developer who wants to master PHP.

I am a self-taught developer, and my bookshelf is a sea of royal blue Murach texts. Nothing comes close to them for clear explanations and excellent real-world demos.-Phil Holbrook, IT Manager

Great book May 15, 2011

The cook textbook style is employed to cover a wide variety of relevant and practical topics, therefore this makes the learning process a lot more fun and with a lot of gratification. It teaches you PHP and MySQL step by step and the examples and exercises in the textbook are self-explanatory and helpful. This textbook does exactly that. Murach's unique style of putting explanations on each left page and corresponding examples on each right page is ingeniously simple yet amazingly effective. This is the perfect introductory text on the subject. Easy to follow examples presented in a clear way. I highly recommend this cheap textbook and I can say it is the best textbook you can buy for this field.
