About the Author
Top customer reviews
One thing that I really liked about this book was that as well as the strong focus on jQuery throughout (as you'd expect) the author also included not just one, but several different examples of using jQuery UI in conjunction with PHP. jQuery UI is the official UI library for jQuery so I think it's important that it should be covered in this kind of book.
The author does an excellent job of explaining some of the cool things like the many plugins that are available for creating things as inteactive select boxes, tabs, accordians and how ot integrate these plugin scripts within your PHP code with real-life examples.
Other topics covered by the author are file management, image manipulation, calendars, and drag and drop manipulation. There are lots of examples and code snipets that are used which helps the reader learn everything ste-by-step.
I highly recommed this book to anybody who wants learn how to integrate some cool effects and commercial interactivity to their websites.
A great book!
There is even a good chapter that quickly touches on the different aspects of optimizing your applications with things like caching, code re-use/organization and content delivery networks (CDN's).
Yes there is some technical stuff in there but the examples are so clear (and copy-pastable) that I as somebody without jQuery or PHP expertise was successfull with the examples.
Chapters 3 and 8 are worth the cost of the book alone. Creating cool dynamic tabs and accordions was a breeze and dragging and dropping page elements slightly more challenging but still achieveable for a determined novice.
Yes good book.
