Meet the Author

David Powers is an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and author of a series of highly successful books on PHP, including PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy and Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8. As a professional writer, he has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television and more recently with the Internet. His clear writing style is valued not only in the English-speaking world; several of his books have been translated into Spanish and Polish. What started as a mild interest in computing was transformed almost overnight into a passion, when David was posted to Japan in 1987 as BBC correspondent in Tokyo. With no corporate IT department just down the hallway, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. When not tinkering with the innards of his computer, he was reporting for BBC television and radio on the rise and collapse of the Japanese bubble economy. Since leaving the BBC to work independently, he has built up an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. When not pounding the keyboard writing books or dreaming of new ways of using PHP and other programming languages, David enjoys nothing better than visiting his favorite sushi restaurant. He has also translated several plays from Japanese.

    Wow. Great book and nice mix of explanation and examples.

    I purchased this book in hope that it would help me quickly leverage Dreamweaver CS3 for development of a critical work project. I have been hand-coding PHP and MySQL as a hobbyist for several years, but never had the motivation to really learn how to leverage Dreamweaver. Now with a project at work, I realize that I'll need to use tools which will facilitate maintenance and future development.<BR/>This book fit the bill perfectly. Dreamweaver is an amazing product, especially when coupled with PHP and MySQL. This book really shows how to quickly take advantage of that environment.<BR/>Thanks Tom for a valuable resource.
