    Highly recommend this book to web developers no matter the experience letter.

    The book does a good job of introducing you to the PHP coding and how to use it for many web developer aspects like session cookies, creating web applications, using templates, using functions, writing and reading from files, and has an introduction to MySQL integration with PHP. If you are new to PHP, this will be very helpful for you to read, especially if you are a web developer or entry-level web developer.

    The tables in this book used to detail code are unreadable using a Nook reader. Using enlarged print is cumbesom due to going back to the text of the book.



    Also, the support forum is not accepting any new issues. Unreadable/no support -- Maybe it it time to look elsewhere.
