Format: Paperback
I've been teaching PHP to IBM i programmers for more than two years (as at Aug 2009) and my only complaint about this book is that if Jeff and Kevin had written it a few years earlier it would have saved me a lot of time and trouble.

The book does a great job of highlighting the PHP language from an IBM i programmers perspective - taking the beginning PHP programmer all the way from the basics to integrating their existing programs and other resources with PHP.

One of the reasons I often recommend that RPG programmers learn PHP rather than (say) Java is that it makes it easy to slide into the world of OO without having to completely change your programming paradigm. That is to say that you can easily use Objects in PHP (for example when using web services) without having to switch to a completely OO style. In this regard the section of the book on OO programming in PHP is "just enough" to give the reader a good feel for the topic and give them the confidence to move ahead into the world of OO.

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I read this book on my flight back from Common 2009, it is a must read book for the IBM System i RPG programmer who is interested in learning PHP on the System i. This book guides the RPG Programmer thru the basic steps of learning PHP, and includes many examples of PHP code to try. Each chapter ends with a brief test to verify knowledge of the PHP language just learned. Also included in the book is a chapter on OO to get the RPG programmer thinking along the lines of Object Oriented PHP classes. Overall it is an easy to read book and the authors have addressed the basic skillset levels needed to get started with PHP. An IBM System i RPG programmer who wants to extend there programming skills will want to get a copy of this book - hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I have read this book from cover to cover and can honestly say that it is a great reference for anyone looking to move into PHP on IBM i. The topics are well organized, the examples are informative, and the information is easy to understand. This is a must read.

As the webmaster of [...]. have been around the block a few times using PHP on IBM i. In my opinion, PHP will become the web language of choice on IBM i. If you have not explored PHP, you need to do it NOW. This book is the perfect way to get started.
