Book Description

18 Aug 2014 1449374026 978-1449374020 3

MySQL’s popularity has brought a flood of questions about how to solve specific problems, and that’s where this cookbook is essential. When you need quick solutions or techniques, this handy resource provides scores of short, focused pieces of code, hundreds of worked-out examples, and clear, concise explanations for programmers who don’t have the time (or expertise) to solve MySQL problems from scratch.

Ideal for beginners and professional database and web developers, this updated third edition covers powerful features in MySQL 5.6 (and some in 5.7). The book focuses on programming APIs in Python, PHP, Java, Perl, and Ruby. With more than 200+ recipes, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use the mysql client and write MySQL-based programs
  • Create, populate, and select data from tables
  • Store, retrieve, and manipulate strings
  • Work with dates and times
  • Sort query results and generate summaries
  • Use stored routines, triggers, and scheduled events
  • Import, export, validate, and reformat data
  • Perform transactions and work with statistics
  • Process web input, and generate web content from query results
  • Use MySQL-based web session management
  • Provide security and server administration

5.0 out of 5 stars The most amazing MySQL book ever made! 21 Aug 2014
By Darkside - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to have the honor of being the first person to review this amazing book. I hadn't purchased the previous edition but I saw that it received tons of good reviews on Amazon and this one came out like a day or two before I decided to buy it so I knew that the content would be up to date, which is always important when it comes to programming and web technology books; the landscape is constantly changing.

I purchased the ebook version for $50.57 and I can say it was worth every sent and more! I purchased this title because I needed to learn more about MySQL so that I can build a web application that relies heavily on querying MySQL databases through PHP. I'm already several chapters in and I've learned far more in just a couple of days of reading and trying the examples in this book than I have from months of reading several other books and watching online tutorial videos which only skim the surface of what MySQL can do.

This book teaches in a fun way with numerous helpful examples. I never thought that a MySQL book could be a page turner but it is; it's thrilling to read and I will treasure this book for many years to come, as I'm sure I'll need to go back to it whenever I'm stuck on a database issue. Please do yourself a favor and buy this book!!!
