Descriptions du produit

Having developed for the Internet since the mid 1990s I have used a number of programming languages, beginning with Perl, which was the first tool I mastered. However I soon found that great though Perl was for developing with, at the time it didn't have the power I needed for ultra busy websites, and so the load averages of the servers I used was going through the roof. So I rewrote all the processor-intensive code in C and was able to substantially slow down our server acquisition rate. But while C is powerful, it takes a lot of coding to replicate even basic Perl functions. So when PHP came along I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that even though it is interpreted (that is, re-compiled each time it is run), it placed far less of a strain on the servers than Perl, and also took up far less development time. Since then I have used PHP in combination with MySQL for all my server side development. And with JavaScript gaining the XMLHttpRequest object, and hence the beginnings of Ajax, the three technologies are now my mainstays for web development. So when O'Reilly asked me to write this book I jumped at the opportunity. In it I have tried to take you from first steps, without assuming any prior knowledge other than basic HTML and maybe some CSS, through each of the technologies in turn, and along the way point out the shortcuts and pitfalls I have discovered, to give you the headstart I didn't have. I maintain an active discussion forum on the book's topics, which is linked to via the companion website at, and am always happy to answer any questions you may have. From the Back Cover Learn how to create responsive, data-driven websites with the three central technologies of PHP, MySQL, & JavaScript--whether or not you know how to program. This simple, streamlined guide explains how the powerful combination of PHP and MySQL provides a painless way to build modern websites with dynamic data and user interaction. You'll also learn how to add JavaScript to create rich Internet websites and applications, and how to use Ajax to handle background communication with a web server. This book explains each technology separately, shows you how to combine them, and introduces valuable concepts in modern web programming, including objects, XHTML, cookies, regular expressions and session management. Learning PHP, MySQL, & JavaScript will help you: * Understand the essentials of PHP and the basics of object-oriented programming * Master MySQL, from database structure to complex queries * Create interactive web pages with PHP and MySQL by integrating forms and other HTML features * Get a thorough grounding in JavaScript, from functions and event handling to accessing the Document Object Model * Use libraries and packages such as the Smarty web template system, The PEAR program repository and the Yahoo! User Interface Library (YUI) * Learn how to make Ajax calls and turn your website into a highly dynamic environment * Find out how to upload and manipulate files and images, validate user input and secure your applications against being hacked * Develop best practices for error handling, user authentication and website usability Programming tips and exercises in each chapter will help you practice what you've learned. If you have a graphics or web design background and know your way around HTML, this book will have you building interactive websites quickly. Robin Nixon is computer journalist who has also developed numerous websites using PHP, MySQL and JavaScript. He has written over 500 articles and authored three books on computing. About the Author Robin Nixon has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s (his first computer was a Tandy TRS 80 Model 1 with a massive 4KB of RAM!). During this time he has written in excess of 500 articles for many of the UK's top computer magazines. Learning PHP, MySQL & JavaScript is his third book. Robin started his computing career in the Cheshire homes for disabled people, where he was responsible for setting up computer rooms in a number of residential homes, and for evaluating and tailoring hardware and software so that disabled people could use the new technology--sometimes by means of only a single switch operated by mouth or finger. After writing articles for computer magazines about his work with disabled people, he eventually worked full time for one of the country's main IT magazine publishers, where he held several roles including editorial, promotions, and cover disc editing. With the dawn of the Internet in the 1990s, Robin branched out into developing websites. One of these presented the world's first radio station licensed by the music copyright holders, and was featured in several news reports on TV and radio networks in the United Kingdom. In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows. Robin lives on the southeast coast of England with his wife Julie, a trained nurse, and five children, where he also finds time to foster three disabled children, as well as working full time from home as a technical author.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Robin Nixon a été un écrivain de 30 ans, a écrit plus de 500 articles pour de nombreux grands magazines du Royaume-Uni, et est l'auteur de plus d'un douzaine de livres.

Robin a commencé sa carrière d'écrivain dans les maisons Cheshire pour personnes handicapées, où il était responsable de la mise en place des salles informatiques dans un certain nombre de maisons d'habitation, d'évaluer et d'adapter le matériel et les logiciels afin que les personnes handicapées peuvent utiliser la nouvelle technologie, et de l'écriture de pièces justificatives et articles pour une sélection de magazines nationaux.

Après cette carrière de Robin est devenu un cent pour cent par écrit orienté quand il a rejoint un éditeur de magazine grand, où il a occupé une variété de positions éditoriales différentes, avant de quitter pour devenir un écrivain indépendant.

A l'aube de l'Internet dans les années 1990, Robin se lance dans développement de sites Web (y compris la première station de radio sur Internet sous licence). Afin de permettre aux gens de continuer à surfer tout en écoutant, Robin a également développé les premiers connus fenêtres pop-up.

Dans les années 1990 et au début des années 2000 Robin et sa famille a déménagé aux États-Unis une couple de fois, une fois pour diriger une entreprise de conception Web, en Californie, puis à nouveau pour mettre en place un salon de thé anglais au Texas. Entre temps ils ont couru plusieurs pubs réussies, bed and breakfasts et les boîtes de nuit en Angleterre.

Ces dernières années, Robin a commencé à se concentrer plus étroitement sur ​​la motivation et l'amélioration personnelle dans son écriture, tout en continuant à produire plus dans sa populaire série de livres sur l'informatique, qui ont maintenant été traduits en plusieurs langues différentes.

Robin vit sur ​​la côte sud-est de l'Angleterre (où il écrit à temps plein), avec ses cinq enfants et femme Julie (une infirmière et professeur d'université) - entre eux, ils favorisent également trois enfants handicapés.

Wow - The Book to read to learn PHP 27 octobre 2009
Par farout - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Here is my background:
Java, Cold Fusion,, C#, Rails; sys admin for Windows and Unix boxes.

Picked up several books to learn PHP - yuck!

Picked up this book. Wow. In 2 days I was on my way!

1. all the code examples actually work. Yes, it's true. I know it's shocking.
2. the explanations are excellent. Wow can this person communicate. Again shocking.
3. Tons of examples. Talking is great but I learn through code examples. There are plenty here. That is why in 2 days you will be like: Wow I can code in PHP.
4. Here is the best part - Nixon helps you setup everything so it works. I mean in less than 30min I was running PHP via Apache on my Windows using Mysql. I have days with other books trying to make things work because the author did not care enough to actually help me do setup.

Then pick up the PHP Web Dev Wellin/Thompson book and bang with Nixon's - you are a PHP intermediate level programmer.

Really - that easy.

I wasted so many hours with other books - crap. Live and learn.

Thank you Robin Nixon. This book is a godsend. With the hours I saved, I am partying - yee ha!

It is rare that I am so inspired to write a review for something. This book made learning easy. I must say that without the experience of taking a Java programming class at my college (the only programming experience I have), I would have likely had to make use of additional sources to fully grasp the PHP - object oriented section of this book. But even so, I still highly recommend this book to anybody wanting to create a highly functional website.

After spending about 2 weeks with it, I am already building dynamic websites that are impressing even myself. It is written very well and has great examples for practice coding. FIVE STARS without question!

Need more like this...but more careful proofing next time! 23 décembre 2009

I had to come back and re-review this book. I'm taking off two stars off my rating, one for the overload of typos I found as I got deeper into the book and for some of the examples NOT being "real world" enough. I know that sounds picky but many of the examples could have served better as real scripts but instead he made some questionable choices that will make you pretty much have to start from scratch to make your own. They just could've been more practical.

On the positive side, I do agree with what's already been said about the author communicating well. The reason I was really excited about this title and why I'm loving it so much as I go through it is that it focuses on combining all three and talks about real-world situations. You might read a PHP or javascript book that does the job teaching you those on their own but when it's time to close the book and use them on a real website, you'd be lost or Googling a LOT of things. Most "cool" sites do a good job of making their scripting languages work well together, and this book will show you how to do that, and it serves as a good jump-off for more advanced scripting later. It's like the author said "I know what you're trying to accomplish, here's how to do it."

Good job.

Best Book Introducing PHP, MySQL and JavaScript 17 juillet 2010
Par R. Chou - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Perhaps your like me where learning to write code for myself to be very difficult. I never took a computer programming classes so I lack many fundamentals and concepts. I've always had an easier time with HTML and CSS as those are not programming languages rather just input and output with properties and structures to learn.

As for learning a programming language like PHP (server-side) or JavaScript (browser-side) I've tried it all. From taking to websites that offer the basics and concepts such as free resources like W3Schools and Tizag. Sure, I start reading the code and know what going on but fundamentally, to write my own stuff, it was very difficult.

Found out about this book and it offered the three technologies I have been most earning to learn. This book does a great job to introduce each technology, the concepts about it and takes you step by step with some good code examples. It then goes to have you bring it all together to build your own simple dynamic social site, albeit, extremely bareboned, you'll see the power in using all three.

Here is a breakdown of each part:

1. PHP
2. MySQL
3. JavaScript
4. Emerging Technology (AJAX)
5. Building your own with what you learned

Its a good way to learn as it keeps you focused on a certain subject. Also, the pace is not too fast. As for starting with PHP, its a good way to lead into MySQL. Finally, by the time your starting to learn the basics of JavaScript, you'll already be familiar with what was taught in PHP regarding variables, strings, functions, arrays and objects.

Introducing AJAX really elevates ones perspective of the potential of using all three together to create dynamic and live websites.

This book will not make you an expert in any of the technologies, but it does its job. It introduces you programming like no other book I've read before. Trust me, I've tried to learn from tutorials, websites and books that focus on just a single technology and none comes close to helping me learn.

This is the first book to read for anyone interested in becoming a web developer that has never learned a programming language before.

An Excellent Introduction for Beginners 18 mars 2010
Par W. R. Dieter - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Writing an introductory book on a topic like web programming is always difficult because the audience is varied. The readers will range from complete newbies who have never written a program before to experts in other technologies writing their first web pages, or perhaps even experts in other web technologies using these technologies for the first time.

PHP, MySQL & JavaScript perhaps goes a bit fast for someone with no programming experience whatsoever, but does not assume expert programmer status. The PHP and MySQL sections are very well explained and would be great for someone with little experience. For someone with a lot of experience in other programming languages, the PHP section might be a bit slow, but can fairly easily be skimmed to get the main content.

The MySQL section was a great, but somewhat short, introduction to relational databases. A little more depth might be helpful. Many volumes have been written on relational databases, elsewhere, however.

The JavaScript section went at a good pace for someone who already has quite a bit of programming experience. It might be a bit fast for someone at the level that the PHP section assumes. Readers who are new to programming will have enough information to write working code, even if they don't understand all of the nuances behind the language.

Overall the book is a good starting off point for anyone wanting to learn web development with PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript. Readers with little programming experience should be able to follow the discussion without much trouble. The information is organized in a orderly way, so more experienced developers can skim or skip over what they already know.
