    • Web forum
    • Building and managing a mailing list (on the CD–ROM)
  • Automates the programming process and walks you through building the application from start to finish
  • Explains how to write secure code
  • Features complete codenot just snippets, but neatly assembled packages withinstantreal–world functionality
  • Shows how to build the applications in two forms –– procedural and object–oriented programming –– providing programmers who want to switch to the object–oriented method of coding (which is new in PHP 5!) with the essential know–how
  • Includes a companion CD–ROM that contains every line of code in the applications from the book plus a bonus chapter that shows how to build a mailing list

Information on each application includes a discussion of issues, structure of the database, code listings, and an explanation of the code.

Review Text

  • By Mr. Steven W. Downey on 2 March 2007

    I bought this book after reading the author's other book 'PHP & MySql for Dummies' because I wanted to create a shopping cart. I have already learned and applied the basics of php and sql.And I did struggle with this book. Yes it is very informative but definetely not for Dummies!I had to refer to the other book for explantions to what I was reading, as you are expected to know php. She writes (for example) 'create a function' or 'connect to the database in the usual way' with no explanation of how to do that.Also she uses a lot of include files which are displayed in the book but it took me a while to figure out where the file was in the book that the script was linking to and scratch my head trying to work out how the program 'fits together'.So to sum up, yes it is very informative and can get results (I have now built a fully functioning shopping cart!) but I'd advise buying her other excellent book 'PHP & MySql for Dummies' either first or as well as, unless you're experienced, you'll need it.
