Book review - jQuery 1.3 with PHP
January 06, 2010 @ 09:43:48

Robert Basic has posted a review of the "jQuery 1.3 with PHP" book from Packt Publishing (by Kae Verens):

Although I never wrote about jQuery here, I use it quite often and can pull of nice tricks with it. [...] his book is aimed at PHP developers who have met only a few times with JavaScript and jQuery, but I believe even a novice programmer can gain knowledge from it '" just be warned, the PHP examples are here for the sake of the examples only; about which the author warns throughout the book. [...] The examples in the book are well explained and commented!

Robert also mentions some of the contents of the book - the introduction, a "quick tricks" chapter and more detailed chapters covering things like form validation, making a calendar and cropping/resizing images. He includes links to the table of contents and sample chapter if you'd like an example of what the book is like.

Ken Guest's Blog:
Book Review jQuery 1.3 with PHP
December 14, 2009 @ 10:49:32

Ken Guest has posted a book review of a new release from Packt Publishing - "jQuery 1.3 with PHP" (by Kae Verens).

This is the first book sent to me from Packt where I wasn't left dizzy from trying to understand just what it is the author was trying to get across. It looks like their proof-reader was awake for this one - totally awesome. [...] "jQuery 1.3 with PHP" is aimed "for PHP application developers who want to improve their user interfaces through jQuery's capabilities and responsiveness".

Ken mentions the main part of the book, the ten "quick tricks" and detailed sections looking at things like form validation, image manipulation, file management and writing your own jQuery plugins.

It was good to see Kae suggesting use of the PEAR Validate package (or similar) in the Forms and Forms Validation chapter (chapter 4). I had to wonder if there was a PEAR package for creating and shunting down jQuery validation rules to the client - and found that there isn't.

Overall Ken found the book "easy to read" and understandable and recommends it as good reading material for those wanting to combine this powerful duo.
