Customer Review

on February 15, 2010
This book is a great resource for better than novice PHP programmers. It is not a step-by-step tutorial on jQuery, Javascript or PHP but rather a series of real-world examples of using jQuery and jQuery plugins to create a better user-experience. Topics including content hierarchy and organization using tabs/accordians, making AJAX requests to organize and pre-validate form data, building a simple calendar, managing files and uploading, image manipulation and more.

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).

All in all a great book for a PHP developer looking to beef up their web apps with jQuery. The book assumes you have a solid understanding of PHP programming and at least a dash of Javascript/jQuery experience. It'd be beneficial to do a few bare-bones jQuery tutorials before beginning and then dive in.
