Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Most folks who use PHP and MySQL have one goal in mind: to build fast, cost-effective web applications. My SQL/PHP Database Applications ignores aspects of MySQL and PHP that aren't relevant to this goal, focusing specifically on what you need to know to create robust web applications.

The authors, who hail from Webmonkey and Wired Digital -- twin meccas of web development -- start by reviewing the basics of MySQL database design -- including some MySQL limitations and workarounds you'll need to know about (no referential integrity, stored procedures, unions, sub-selects, et cetera). They present just enough SQL to handle the meat-and-potatoes database tasks most web applications require; then offer a concise, to-the-point introduction to PHP. (You'll be thankful you read the chapter on writing organized, readable code -- and so will your colleagues.)

Next, it's on to the heart of the book -- seven real applications (two "simple", five "not-so-simple"): guestbooks, surveys, catalogs, content management systems, threaded discussions, problem tracking systems, and shopping carts. For each, you'll find complete, ready-to-run code -- thoroughly explained, and with plenty of screen captures to show you how it'll look when it's implemented.(Bill Camarda)

--Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced products and services. He served for nearly ten years as vice president of a New Jersey-based marketing company, where he supervised a wide range of graphics and web design projects. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000.

    Easy to understand but there are problems

    Lots of typos which is not good when you are dealing with programming. Easy to understand though. The book scared me enough to not read it anymore because of the bad examples of code that errored out. Get the O'Reilly books instead.

    A great reference book, but...

    This book is great, but it still needs some proofreading. Maybe 3 to 5 passes of proofread. Overall, this makes a great reference book not just for beginners, but for advance users as well. It has many explanations on built-in PHP functions than any other PHP books I've seen. Very useful.

    I didn't get it until I got this book...

    I purchased a PHP book two months ago and it didn't make sense. This book brought it all together. I had a small database and application up and running in one day. <br><br> I am running Mandrake Linux 8.0, which makes the installation of Apache, MySQL and PHP a breeze. This book also comes with the all of this software in Linux and Windows format, and a PDF of the book. <br><br> If you are a beginner in PHP/MySQL this is a great book.
