Continuing with our new series covering PHP and MySQL, we would like to present you today with another great book from Wrox, called PHP and MySQL: Create – Modify – Reuse by Timothy Boronczyk and Martin E. Psinas (Amazon link).

This book is designed to teach you everything about the vibrant power of PHP and MySQL in real-world applications with the useful information and step-by-step directions.

We would like to point out that this book is for anyone who is familiar with the fundamentals of programming in PHP and MySQL and is interested in programming a variety of applications. If you lack any understanding of PHP, we suggest you have a look at Beginning PHP 6, Apache, MySQL 6 Web Development, also from Wrox publishing.

This book was written by geeks who are in tune with everyday web development tasks. The authors have taken on a mission to guide you through quite a few projects that are complete, tested, and ready to be implemented, so that you can understand by doing. Understand all aspects of design, such as portability, design flow, and integration, and become proficient at solving problems that developers face in everyday circumstances.

Written by an experienced PHP professional who is in sync with the most common uses of PHP and MySQL, this tutorial presents basic code for twelve practical projects that demonstrate the basic concepts and syntax of PHP and MySQL that are used to develop web-based applications.

As you walk through the comprehensive steps of each project, you’ll learn the many aspects of design as well as how to properly secure your applications for real-world implementation. While some projects build upon previous projects, others stand alone. Whether you are looking for guidance in how to program different applications, seeking inspiration to write projects of your own, or planning to modify and reapply the featured projects, you can look forward to expanding your skill set with these projects.

Create – Modify – Reuse guides are packed with unique, ready-to-use projects that are perfect for the busy programmer. The projects are created with minimal set-up and can be modified, enhanced, and reused in real-world situations.

To sum it up: this is a great book for anyone who knows PHP and MySQL but still lacks the experience and knowledge of putting it all together to create a powerful working application. This book will take all the bits and pieces you already know, add some spice, and turn it into a great product.

      Well, as written in the article, we suggest you have a look at Beginning PHP 6, Apache, MySQL 6 Web Development, also from Wrox publishing.

      It’s a superb book, and you are going to love it.

    Is this book for beginners or for advanced users only?

    • 4. drupalmeister  |  May 31, 2009 at 8:23 am

      As we wrote in the article, it is required that you have experience in both PHP and MySql.

      We would not recommend this book for a total beginner. If you are just beginning, please consider getting “Beginning PHP 6, Apache, MySQL 6 Web Development”, also from Wrox publishing.

HOWEVER, please note that their latest version of Drush is 8.0 dev., which is horribly out of date an […]
