Zend Developer Zone:
Book Review PHP and MySQL by Example
January 05, 2007 @ 11:46:00

As promised previously, Cal Evans has posted a full book review of the Prentice Hall book "PHP and MySQL by Example" by Ellie Quigley with Marko Gargenta.

Earlier, I posted a sample chapter of PHP and MySQL by Example written by Ellie Quigley with Marko Gargenta. Now I'd like to take a few minutes to do a fly-by of the entire book.

Cal works through some of the chapters talking about their contents, who they're targeted at (where experienced developers can start and stop) and includes a list of the other topics covered between its covers including user defined functions, regular expressions, PHP & MySQL integration, and objects.

Overall, Cal found the book to be a good quality reference tool, but one that focuses a lot more on the basics of programming with PHP and MySQL rather than getting much more high level than touching on OOP or regular expressions.
