Introduction

Over the past few years, the Internet has gone from the preserve of academics to the cutting edge of business. A large part of this has been driven by the growth of the Web, with its graphical browsers and high media profile. The change from static HTML pages to dynamic, user interactive presentations has been achieved largely through the introduction of scripting technologies.

Working with the usual markup language of a web page, scripting languages enable clients to demand specific information from their servers, and their servers, in turn, to receive important user input in order to process and display data on demand.

In the forefront of this advancement has been the open source community, dedicated to providing web-based solutions purely for the love of the technology itself. Open source is not only about free software (though not everything is free anyway), but it is about, as the name suggests, being open about the source of the code.

Having free access to the source means that authors are forced to keep to standards. If these are not maintained, the deviation is labeled a bug, and if the author doesn't fix it, someone else will. Large numbers of independent programmers being able to understand what a program does, and ensuring that standards are maintained, prevents the author from being able to exploit the user, as happens in the commercial software world.

    The good just got better

    I've got the, I suppose more recent, 2002 version of this book, 'Professional PHP4', with now 11 cheesy developers photos staring at you, and would thoroughly recommend it.

    Fantastic!

    I have been working with PHP for about 5 months now, but due to time pressures haven't had any real time for training. Up till now I have learned from php.net and code snippets. I have just got this book, and find it fantastic. It makes so much sense, and ties all of the odds and ends I've learned so far together. Definitely recommended!

    It doesn't get any better!

    I have read lots of programming books, and most of the time the are all just 'fluff'. This book gets strait to the point and never strays!!! This book covers almost everything, and also shows different programming styles from five different authors. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn PHP.

    This book is great if for entry to intermediate developers.

    This book is good for those who have an entry or intermediate level of experience in programming and who are wanting to learn about PHP. Hope they come out with a second more advanced edition, when I am done with this one.

    The best PHP book ever!

    This book covers it all - the introduction to the PHP language, to relational databases like MySQL, to directories (LDAP) and to the cool XML stuff. Definitive: Buy it!
