I've read 20% of the book so far. The main thing I like is the fact there is no fluff in the book. It gives all the basic material needed in a very organized manner. I appreciated the advice on frames. I have avoided using frames because other authors recommend avoiding them, and their instruction on them was very limited as a result. Could it be these other authors were biased towards using tables, or possibly do not fully understand frames? Anyway, I plan to incorporate frames into my future website development, as a result of this book. Thanks Mr. Gabarro!
I do hope you read it till the end. I've heard good things about the last chapter, when everything gets together. Hopefully you will like my examples a little better. :)
For those thinking on whether or not to buy the book, realize that this book is about learning how to make database-driven websites, not how to make pretty pages. If you want to learn tricks and dangers of Web programming, the book can definitely help you. If you just want to learn Web design and how to choose colors, get a different book.
Thanks to all of you that have purchased it so far! :)
But for a functioning web site he recommends what is sometimes called LAMP - for Linux, Apache, MySql and PHP. To summarize why:
The software is FREE, a very good price.
It doesn't crash as often
It runs faster so you can use a slower computer.
By the time you finish, you'll probably want at least one book on each of these software packages, but here is an excellent place to start. It gives you enough to get started and you only need to go deeper into each of these packages when you start getting fancier. The nice thing about this book is that it gives you everything you need to get started in a well written, easy to understand way.
Mr. Gabarro, there are two things I would suggest for your next edition: One, include a cd of a working collection of the four packages rather than saying go get any distribution, and two, talk a little about past and emerging technologies such as Cold Fusion for the past, and Ruby on Rails for the future. I'd be interested in your opinions.
