Very nicely done... Feb. 24 2012
By R. J. Province - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been a developer for over 24 years and I've been writing PHP applications for the DHS for over 10 years. I purchased this book as a desk reference and have found it very useful. It's well organized, so I can find what I'm looking for in a snap. I don't have time to read it from cover to cover, but what I have read has been very insightful and well worth the purchase price. I recommend this book over all others. I also purchased the PHP book, you know the one with the funny animals, and it was absolutely the worse book I ever read. It was not helpful at all. It was written by too many authors and left me confused. Yes, wording the same thing in 2 different ways becomes very confusing. I think I'll stick with the Experts from now on. Hope this helps.

Perfect for an experience software engineer new to PHP March 7 2011
By Ali Julia - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am an experienced software engineer who never done any PHP coding until three weeks ago. I had a good idea of what I wanted to accomplish, but did not know exactly how to do it using PHP. This book was perfect for me.
This book did not cover the basics of software engineering, so when they say "novice" they refer to being a novice in PHP only.

The book is well organized, and I was able to find what I needed to do without reading the book cover to cover.
The sections on installing and configuring PHP and MySQL were very helpful to start with. Examples were clear and useful, and I was able to adapt them to my own needs easily.

I was able to complete my project in several weeks, much of it thanks to this reference.

A good book to start PHP Nov. 30 2011
By mart - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Minor typing errors and code errors are there, but if you are an experienced code examiner, they pose no hinder for learning the interesting PHP language. PHP is changing rapidly, so I gathered much from this book, even if all the changes made to this language are not presented in this newest book. For the novice, though, a substantial basis to start learning!
