Format: Paperback
The book is about, mostly short, code snippets you can use for your web-applications.

The book starts from the very basics and evolves to more complex examples, which are anyway not too complex.

There is no object-oriented programming, all is procedural. There is no plug-in system in this book, you have to take the code and plug it yourself somehow in your application.

This book is suitable for a low-intermediate programmer.

Taking PHP to the Next Level 24 April 2010
By James Mcleod - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A well laid-out book that serves both as a textbook and reference manual. The author, Robin Nixon, keeps your interest by introducing plug-ins adaptable for today's world of webs, should you be seeking how-to information on such things as RSS feeds, Twitter, chat rooms, and more.

Throughout the book, Mr. Nixon applies security measures to prevent hacks nad spam from affecting your website. His use and explanation of Regular Expression have helped me understand its power better.

Should you have a problem with any of the examples and/or plug-ins, help is only an email away. Robin Nixon has responded quickly to every question I've put to him.

I recommend this book to be added to anybody's library who has a working interest in web development.

Great Book that's easy to understand! 12 Oct. 2010
By Pule Nong - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great if you want quick apps for your website. It includes such examples as how to determine the number on users currently viewing the page and how to add bing maps to your pages. The author's style of writing is good. His explanation of the code is great and easy to follow. I have not encountered any errors while playing around with the code.

I give it a 5/5.
