Books about web programming

George Ross
The list author says: "I have been very satisfied with the offerings of O'Reilly Publishing, having purchased books from them since 1994. For that reason, my recommendations favor many of their books. I also recommend the "unleashed" series from Sams Publishing."
Programming Perl (3rd Edition)
Programming Perl (3rd Edition)
"A large percentage of website programming is done with perl.  This is the book to have to learn the basics and more."
CGI Programming with Perl
CGI Programming with Perl
"Once you have mastered perl, add this to the mix and create websites with dynamic content.  perl is considered to be a more secure and robust tool to handle website content than javascript or php.  I recommend using JavaScript for bells and whistles of layout and perl for the meat and potatoes of web form processing (CGI)."
JavaScript: The Definitive Guide
JavaScript: The Definitive Guide
"JavaScript enhances dynamic website design, no matter what the language the server is using (perl, php)."
MySQL in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly))
MySQL in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly))
"For websites that need to display and update large amounts of data you need a real database.  mySQL is often the database engine chosen by web hosting companies to offer to their customers.  This book covers A-Z of installing and using a mySQL database engine.  Not for SQL novices, but a good reference."
MySQL (4th Edition)
MySQL (4th Edition)
"A good book on installing and running a mySQL server or using a mySQL client to access a remote server.  Also covers the basics of SQL and relational database theory."
Programming the Perl DBI: Database programming with Perl
Programming the Perl DBI: Database programming with Perl
"The perl DBI is an excellent way to get up to speed using perl to communicate with various database servers."
CSS: The Definitive Guide
CSS: The Definitive Guide
"As the title says, this is a very good guide to the in and outs of web page layout with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)."
jQuery in Action
jQuery in Action
"Good examples for the use of jQuery (a javascript toolkit) to create web applications that are supported across multiple web browsers."
Learning jQuery 1.3
Learning jQuery 1.3
"This is a good (but slightly dated) introduction to the jQuery toolkit.  Covers v1.3 of jQuery, which is at v1.4.4 as of 07 December 2010."
jQuery UI 1.7: The User Interface Library for jQuery
jQuery UI 1.7: The User Interface Library for jQuery
"A good companion to 'Learning jQuery 1.3'.  Also a bit out of date, covering v1.7 of jQueryUI which is now at v1.8.6 as of 07 December 2010."
FreeBSD 6 Unleashed
FreeBSD 6 Unleashed
"If you want to be a serious developer of web applications, you will need to have a test platform to polish your designs. Install FreeBSD (free download at freebsd.org) on an old desktop you have kicking around that can't run the newest OS from Microsoft Now you can test your creations that need perl, php, mySQL, and perform other tasks such as version control of projects.  All this for free."
BSD Hacks
BSD Hacks
"This is a good compliment to FreeBSD Unleashed.  Some tricks and advice that improve the security and performance of your server."
