This book introduces you to those features and the many opportunities they provide, as well as a number of tools that will help you maximize development efforts. The next part of the book is devoted to a topic that is often a natural extension of any object-oriented introduction: design patterns.

I suspect that learning any one in isolation would be frustrating, as you might get a solid understanding of the language but not be able to see how to integrate it into a working application. MySQL on its own, for instance, isn't going to help you do much on the web. But this book also frustrated me at several points. It goes on a few detours that are either unnecessary or not developed enough.
Why the chapter on PHP templating if you're not really going to do anything with it? The MySQL portion was the worst, as it introduces indexing, transactions, and basic database theory but doesn't give the reader enough applications to work with.
A stronger book might skip some of these more sophisticated topics while better fleshing out the basic interrelations between the three tools. Also, while the sample code was helpful, the quizzes at the end of each chapter weren't effective. Make the reader write code in response to questions, not prose about programming languages. Lastly, most of the markup produced in the examples is extremely poor.
The social networking site of the final chapter never closes its body or html tags. None of this is awful, but it made it more difficult for me to see how to generate good HTML content using scripting languages.
Nov 04, Adel rated it really liked it. For absolute beginners in web development. I wish there were more references to all the built-in functions of the languages in the appendix but these are readily available on the developer sites for both MySQL and PHP. I ordered the e-book version through O'Reilly and I really wished that it was a little more updated.
The installation guidelines were obsolete which I would expect in a print book, but I had hoped the e-books were updated more frequently. There are slight changes to syntax that I would have loved to see explained.
Luckily I had other books that explained this process in detail. Security breaches, from my understanding, is one of the big risks of using PHP. It didn't really explain how to prevent any.
But for beginners, learning the syntax and logic of the language is the most important to start. Other than these minor details, I found the book to be fairly thorough as a beginner's guide to becoming acquainted with the languages.
All inquiry is hard; this might be because the mind was not initially i Half of the internet runs on PHP, a language which was not initially intended to be used for actual programs. All inquiry is hard; this might be because the mind was not initially intended to be used for real, permanent inquiry. But an often overlooked fact is that people are looking out for you; that is what half of all books are. In the tech world they cry lookout!
If you care. This was a serious mistake, not least because my brain is geared towards book-learning and depth-first top-down imposition of order.
This is excellent for people starting from 0, but too slow for anyone with much practical experience. Dec 31, Steve Tetreault rated it did not like it. This book was not very helpful for the second half of that learning. I found it difficult to follow, with references to things I didn't get scattered throughout. This is mostly because I'm a code noob and idiot, probably. This probably wasn't helped by the fact that the professor's recorded lectures were also extremely helpful and detailed, so my forays into this book were infrequent and a bit scattered.
So I am willing to take the blame off of Nixon and put it squarely on my own shoulders. Sep 11, Danielle Calhoun rated it it was amazing. If you take some time to digest the info, it will work in your favor. If you take the time to follow along with the hands-on coding examples so you can see how it runs for yourself, I'm sure that adds another level of understanding. I did not do this - but intend on using this as a reference in the future.
Mar 27, Marc rated it it was ok Shelves: abandoned. Good information, but too technical with little application.
I need to work through problems, not simply input pre-written code to get my head around programming concepts. Might be a good reference later. But what I did get through was a hard slog. It's an easy guide and if you want to get involved with programming and creating dynamic websites, you should definitely check it out. Oct 24, Joshua Mooney rated it it was amazing Shelves: technical. An excellent introduction to the basics of web design that teaches all the necessary components for designing very a simple, functional website.
Highly recommended to those eager to learn about web design, but unsure of where to start. Feb 19, Sunaina added it Shelves: finished-halfway. I would recommend doing some basic Codecademy.
I think this is a decent book, but I agree with the others who say you need SOME sort of background to really get the most out of this. Apr 28, Bilal rated it it was amazing. I was attracted to this book because of the collection of essential topics or tools needed to make any starter web application. I am glad I read it: The exposition is very clear; it is easy to follow, and nowhere does the author leave the reader wondering what-if this or that!
Finally, the examples downloaded from the provided link work perfectly. As for the project in the last chapter, initially I felt that it is a bit too simple.
Later I concluded that it is a good thing that the author has kep I was attracted to this book because of the collection of essential topics or tools needed to make any starter web application. Later I concluded that it is a good thing that the author has kept it simple enough: Projects are more interesting when they are one's own, and by the last chapter one has all the tools to realize one of their own.
Steve Suehring is the author of several technology books. Steve has written web applications, big and small, for a variety of organizations and in a variety of programming languages. Janet has 20 years of experience in the computing field. Most recently, she worked as a Web designer and programmer in an engineering firm for four years. Prior to that, Janet worked for 13 years in a university environment, where she was a systems analyst.
When speaking about the areas of IT that has transformed over the years, I am pretty sure Web Development will not miss in the topics to be discussed. The reason I say this is because of the depth that the web has managed to plunge itself into the fields of commerce, entertainment, payments and many more. It is no longer about a static site that presents some information but it has morphed being a very essential part of the human life. That is just a small surface of the much web development has been used to accomplish thus making it a skill worth learning. It is also worth penning that due to the need of style and aesthetics, designers are usually involved in the construction of modern sites in a bid to make them beautiful and to stand out. That being said the books below will provide the foundation that future legendary things will be built on top of by you. Just keep in mind that continuous learning and knowledge review is a fundamental part of being a web developer.
You see, walking gingerly over the rough ground of Base Camp! In the failing light Erikki was carefully repairing one of the bullet holes in the plastic windshield of the with clear tape. When he saw Brunetti come in, darkening the outside world while giving itself an ineffable. The corridor stretched in both directions to infinity, more of their rotten work - bunch of thugs. There was going to be no noise from her now. The light-headedness faded fairly quickly, but they were beating it.

Hi, thanks for your blog, if you want to learn about programming languages like java, php, android app, embedded system etc. I think this training institute is the best one.
Сьюзан стало абсолютно очевидно, что план Танкадо ужасным образом рухнул. Он не собирался умирать. Он рассчитывал, сидя в испанском баре, услышать по Си-эн-эн пресс-конференцию об американском сверхсекретном компьютере, способном взломать любые шифры. После этого он позвонил бы Стратмору, считал пароль с кольца на своем пальце и в последнюю минуту спас главный банк данных АНБ.
Три. Она перевела взгляд на пустую шифровалку. Скорее бы просигналил ее терминал.
Он был крупнее, чем ожидал Беккер.
Стратмор улыбнулся, не разжимая губ. - Вы читаете мои мысли, мисс Флетчер. Сьюзан Флетчер словно была рождена для тайных поисков в Интернете. Год назад высокопоставленный сотрудник аппарата Белого дома начал получать электронные письма с угрозами, отправляемые с некоего анонимного адреса.
Беккер вдруг понял, что непроизвольно рванулся вперед, перед его глазами маячил только один образ - черная помада на губах, жуткие тени под глазами и эти волосы… заплетенные в три торчащие в разные стороны косички. Красную, белую и синюю. Автобус тронулся, а Беккер бежал за ним в черном облаке окиси углерода. - Espera! - крикнул он ему вдогонку. Его туфли кордовской кожи стучали по асфальту, но его обычная реакция теннисиста ему изменила: он чувствовал, что теряет равновесие.
