Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Third 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 MySQL's most significant release to date, readers will learn how to take advantage of the features of both technologies to build powerful, manageable, and stable web applications.

Essentially three books in one, readers will not only profit from extensive introductions to the core features 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 seven years of expertise working with these technologies, readers will repeatedly return to this book as both a valuable instructional tool and reference guide.

I'd recommend this book to any novice or professional. It covers all the basic aspects of PHP 5 along with mySQL implementation. Very good book to read and have on hand for reference. Read full review

Review: Beginning PHP and MySQL 5: From Novice to Professional

User Review  - Goodreads

A rather good introduction to several subjects and processes that I was already acquianted with before the start of reading this. Even with a notable share of experience (seen from a hobbyist point of view), there were many things to be taught in this book - and in a well-written manner. Read full review
