Book Review - AJAX and PHP - Building Responsive Web Applications
May 08, 2006 @ 06:55:38

The PHPit.net site has posted a book review today, a look at Packt Publishing's "AJAX and PHP: Building Responsive Web Applications".

Welcome to the first book review on PHPit, which is the first one in the new "Book Reviews" section on PHPit. There are many PHP & MySQL books these days, and more are being released every day, which makes it a hard task to pick a good PHP book. That's why I've decided to create this new section which will help you pick the best PHP books available. I will take a look at certain PHP books, and do a thorough review on each of them. Every review will end with a conclusion and a recommendation.

Overall, the review seems positive, though the reviewer notes that the book seems a bit basic at times. He mentions the basic contents - topics like Javascript, XML, XMLHttpRequest, and browser issues one might come across. Theses basics get you ready for the main two sections - client and server-side development. He notes, though, that unless you're very new to the whole Ajax and PHP thing, you might not learn much here.
