This book teaches developers how to build database-driven web applications using two of today's most popular open-source software tools, PHP and MySQL.To get you off to a fast start, the first 6 chapters teach you how to develop, test, and debug your first PHP applications. That includes getting data from MySQL databases and structuring your PHP applications the right way, using the MVC pattern. Then, Section 2 takes you deeper into PHP, moving from the simple to the complex as it covers the professional skills you'll use every day in coding your applications...skills like how to work with form data, dates, arrays, sessions, cookies, functions, objects, and regular expressions, and how to handle exceptions in a way that makes sense to your site visitors. Section 3 then dives into MySQL, teaching you how to design and create a database, as well as giving you more skills for accessing and maintaining database data like a pro. Finally, Section 4 teaches you the specialized web skills you need for certain web sites, like how to secure web pages, send email, upload files, process images, and access content (like YouTube videos) from other web sites to incorporate into your own. Full coding examples and chapter exercises provide training support throughout. A great read for any developer who wants to master PHP.
