I've been a developer for over 24 years and I've been writing PHP applications for the DHS for over 10 years. I purchased this book as a desk reference and have found it very useful. It's well organized, so I can find what I'm looking for in a snap. I don't have time to read it from cover to cover, but what I have read has been very insightful and well worth the purchase price. I recommend this book over all others. I also purchased the PHP book, you know the one with the funny animals, and it was absolutely the worse book I ever read. It was not helpful at all. It was written by too many authors and left me confused. Yes, wording the same thing in 2 different ways becomes very confusing. I think I'll stick with the Experts from now on. Hope this helps.

Format: Paperback
I am an experienced software engineer who never done any PHP coding until three weeks ago. I had a good idea of what I wanted to accomplish, but did not know exactly how to do it using PHP. This book was perfect for me.
This book did not cover the basics of software engineering, so when they say "novice" they refer to being a novice in PHP only.

The book is well organized, and I was able to find what I needed to do without reading the book cover to cover.
The sections on installing and configuring PHP and MySQL were very helpful to start with. Examples were clear and useful, and I was able to adapt them to my own needs easily.

I was able to complete my project in several weeks, much of it thanks to this reference.

Minor typing errors and code errors are there, but if you are an experienced code examiner, they pose no hinder for learning the interesting PHP language. PHP is changing rapidly, so I gathered much from this book, even if all the changes made to this language are not presented in this newest book. For the novice, though, a substantial basis to start learning!

Format: Paperback
In web development, two languages have taken a strong place in crafting today's most valuable websites. "Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional" is a complete and comprehensive guide to learning and understanding these two disciplines in web design and how to use them to craft a useful and excellent website. Using these features allow for more complete data bases, interactivity with users, W. Jason Gilmore also explores how to integrate these concepts with the basic web building language of HTML. "Beginning PHP and MySQL" is a powerful and very valuable tool for web design students.

Beginning PHP and MySQL From Novice to Professional stands true to its name. This book is well written. Chapters progressively elaborate concepts with clear, concise, and easy to understand examples. This book aptly makes developers aware of ways to address security with PHP. I would like to thank the author for writing such a marvelous technical book. Two thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
Not sure where to begin; I must say that I am extremely disappointed with this book to say the least. I've been, mainly, a .net developer for close to 12 years now (that's all my programing life) and my first experience with php has been very confusing. I bought this book hoping that it would help me take off my Microsoft programming hat and put me in a php mindset, sadly that did not happen. The main issue I have with this book is the excessive mention of the tools and frameworks available to us (LDAP, ZEND, PEAR etc..) and the speed in which they were covered on one hand and the lack of hands-on programming on the other. I think the code examples presented in the book can be easily compressed into less than a chapter; the rest is more like definitions of the frameworks. A beginner with php could care less about LDAP, FILE and operating system, networking etc... A new comer wants to understand how to build a simple website while learning the essence of the scripting language. I would not recommend it for beginners.

The book is an unorganized mess. Lots of fluffs. The information presented is incomplete. For example, in chapter 18, the author discussed some configuration directives without telling the filename where to set the configuration. Explanations from Google searches are clearer. The examples in this book demonstrate bad practices. If you are a newbie, this book will lead you to write bad codes.

Buy a different book. Larry E. Ullman wrote a few good books, try those.

I provided a good quick reference guide to all the basic functions of PHP and MySQL. The book mostly focuses on the common and new functions for PHP. Though it mentions the legacy functions the new ones replace it does not provide a lot of detail on the legacy functions. So if you are planning on updating/optimizing your legacy PHP code, this book will definitely help. If you need a reference book for a legacy functions code you are better off using the docs on [...]
