PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites
The other day I was browsing Amazon.com trying to find a good PHP/MySQL book for my easily distracted mind to focus on. I have been making starts and stops in my PHP journey for some time now mostly because I was busy with school, but also because I couldn’t seem to find a good resource to help me get started and moving fast. The book that I had contemplated using before when I started working on improving my PHP skills fell short because it covered outdated versions of PHP and MySQL so I was constantly running into all kinds of errors.
Well, I think I finally solved my problem! I think I finally found the book that I’ve been looking for:
Being the geek I am, I never buy a book or a gadget without reading as many reviews as I can find, and PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide (2nd Edition) (Visual QuickPro Guide) has excellent reviews at Amazon.com, and I definitely highly recommend it.
By the way, the second edition covers PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1, so you’re pretty up to date, and Appendix A guides you through the installation process. I’m excited to start working through this book!!
