Product description

From the Inside Flap

PrefaceGoal of This Book

The goal of this book is to help you get a better grasp of PHP, to learn some of the less commonly used features, and to help you build some applications that are useful in your work or hobbies. I hope it gives you some ideas on how to make your own applications easier to code and easier to use.

Who This Book Is For

This book is for those who have done some basic PHP programming and wish to learn about some of the more advanced techniques to make applications easier to use and easier to program.

I received many emails from across the globe from readers of my first book, Essential PHP for Web Professionals (also published by Prentice Hall), who liked the concise style and ample examples I had provided. I received literally dozens of emails from people who said they had read other PHP programming books, but they didn’t really grasp how PHP worked until they read my book. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel. I hope to do the same with this book.

This book is for those of you who are ready to take the next step and learn a little more about PHP. This book isn’t a reference book, nor does it cover every advanced aspect of PHP. It does, however, stretch beyond the basics and introduce some more concepts that can help you with your PHP programming.

From the Back Cover

  • Build complex, PHP-driven Web sites—fast!
  • Discover powerful new PHP techniques, hands on!
  • Learn all-new techniques based on PHP-GTK and PEAR::DB
  • Master XML parsing, user authentication, forms processing, data mining, and much more

Take your PHP programming skills to the next level!

In this concise, hands-on tutorial, PHP expert Christopher Cosentino delivers dozens of powerful new techniques for building serious Web applications. Through professional-quality examples drawn from his six years as a PHP developer, Cosentino walks you through building friendlier, more usable sites; improving user authentication; generating dynamic graphics; parsing XML documents; building database-independent Web applications; and much more!

Take PHP to the limit... and beyond!

  • Authenticate users by IP address, database query, or HTTP authentication

  • And more...
