In charge of a website? Here's what you need to know about key web technologies!

Websites have become much flashier, but the building blocks to create them remain much the same. This information-packed book covers four essential web technologies: HTML and CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL. Learn how they work together to create web services, validate web forms, and set up a members-only site, plus discover how to create a templating system with PHP. You'll build on the basics and take your website to new levels with this friendly For Dummies guide.

  • Lay the groundwork — find out how the web works and how to get and install PHP, MySQL, and a web server
  • Style it — create a page with HTML, add style with CSS, build a JavaScript program, and see what jQuery can do for you
  • Rockin' with PHP — learn about PHP syntax and error messages, build a script, and use PHP to create dynamic web pages
  • Magical MySQL — administer MySQL and set up MySQL accounts, design and build databases, keep them updated, and connect MySQL to PHP
  • Service, please — create a web service, create and validate web forms, and set up login objects

Open the book and find:

  • Installation instructions for Windows, Mac, and Linux
  • HTML building blocks
  • How CSS makes creating forms easier
  • The difference between JavaScript and Java
  • Tips on coding more efficiently with jQuery
  • An introduction to object- oriented programming
  • Details of database structure

I'm a C++ developer with industrial experience.
I've purchased this book some months ago and I'm now reading into it to learn the basics about web developments.
I think it is a great investment if you know close to nothing about the subject, which is building dynamic web sites with database support.
The text is clear and the chapters are reasonable in length. Hence the reader will not get bored nor he/she will become discouraged.
This book will prepare the potential internet applications developer for starting their own projects.
It will give them the basic knowledge in HTML5/CSS/JavaScript/PHP/MySQL to proceed on their own and to extend on the acquired skills.
After reading this book, you can continue reading more specialized books covering more details on, say, JavaScript or PHP to improve your skills but you will already know the basics.
I highly recommend this book for beginners as you will not need 4-5 different books to cover all the topics.
This book will do it for you and for such an awesome price, it's a great buy.

This book gave me a very good understanding of the topics related to web site development. I wasn't interested in actually developing a site, I was more interested in learning more about the mechanics of site development. I like the way the book is split into 4 mini books that lead the reader through the subjects.

The three platforms are discussed (PC, MAC, LINUX) and example code is prevalent throughout the book. The reader can follow along and code the examples; which I found to be great fun.

Bottom line, I recommend this book as a source of knowledge on introduction to web site mechanics.
