Description

Beginning PHP and MySQL, Fourth Edition offers a comprehensive introduction to two of the most prominent open source technologies on the planet: the PHP scripting language and the MySQL database server. Updated to introduce the features found in the forthcoming PHP 5.3 release, this 800+ page guide shows readers how take advantage of the latest features of both technologies to build powerful web sites.

Essentially three books in one, readers are not only exposed to extensive introductions of each technology, but also learn how to effectively integrate the two in order to build robust data-driven applications. Packed with practical examples and insight into the real-world challenges faced by developers based on author W. Jason Gilmore’s 12 years of experience working with these technologies, readers will repeatedly return to this book as both a valuable instructional tool and reference guide.
