PHPit.net:
Book Review PHP5 Recipes A Problem-Solution Approach
August 24, 2006 @ 13:20:51

PHPit.net has posted yet another book review on their site, this time with a look at the APress published book "PHP5 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach" (by Lee Babin, Nathan A. Good, Frank M. Kormann, and Jon Stephans).

Welcome to this review of "PHP5 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach", published by Apress. Although PHP5 has been available for quite some time now, I must admit that I'm still beginner myself when it comes to PHP5's new features, so this book is exactly what I need, and I bet many others do as well. Read on to learn more about this book.

The bulk of the review covers the contents of the book (all sixteen chapters) and includes the topics of introductory OOP techniques/terms, using dates/times, regular expressions, functions, using forms, and using MySQL.

The reviewer's opinion of the book was not good. While the name implies a book focused on "what's new" in PHP5, it's really more of a beginner book, taking a developer through more of a "what's PHP" tour. There were a few points where PHP5 features shined through, though.
