Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Today, you need deeper PHP skills for building smarter Web, database, and e-commerce applications. This book delivers those skills -- and, like all of Peachpit's Visual QuickPro Guides, it's wonderfully readable and usable.

You've already experienced Larry Ullman's deep PHP knowledge if you've read his excellent PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide). Here, he starts fast, showing how to modularize sites and run entire applications through one index page; keep caches from returning old pages; and even use PHP5 with Ajax. There's extensive security coverage, including storing session data in the database, using PEAR Auth, and leveraging PECL filters for data validation and sanitization.

Haven't started writing object-oriented PHP yet? Ullman walks you from the basics through abstract classes and other advanced features. You'll find powerful techniques for networking, including IP geolocation; and for utilizing servers to compress files, create graphics, even generate spreadsheets. Bill Camarda, from the June 2007 Read Only
