4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great book with some insightful introductions to all the parts of a typical stack. Slightly out of date in parts I feel, even though this is supposed to be an updated edition. For instance MyISAM is introduced as the norm in the MySQL chapter, but it's much more likely you'll be using InnoDB. There is as usual a sort of brushing over JavaScript DOM manipulation, which is really disappointing.
However the author has created a cookbook of sorts for understanding and writing the sort of code every web developer will need to understand and use as their everyday 'bread and butter' code.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I've finally got this book., 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I develop mostly for WordPress and this is a book I wish I'd got years ago to save me much time and effort muddling through the codex, forums and outdated blog posts. I waited a few months for the updated version as the WordPress backend admin and core has changed more than slightly since the 2nd edition was published, this new edition has updated chapters on Theme Development, focuses more on using WordPress ambitiously as an App Framework, going beyond the CMS. Really good read with great examples and I'm sure it will be my bible going forward with WordPress in 2015.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic JS Book - buy it., 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant book, covers a lot of JavaScript topics all in one place, with enough brevity to be clear to beginners, but with solid examples and in depth explanations and history for those needing something a little more in depth. I bought this to wean myself off of using so much jQuery and to better understand what's going on behind the scenes with DOM traversal and Ajax calls, and it's certainly helped. An intro to ECMAScript 6 at the end and some helpful hints and tips make this one of my top purchases for 2014 - the only drawback being the spelling mistakes. The typos I can easily ignore but there are some mistakes in the code which could be hindering if it's not spotted, but I look at the positive - this is what working with real code is like! You have to deal with mistakes and typos all the time ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice phone case., 2 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice case, protects my phone and is barely noticeable!
The plastic gets quite greasy, if you handle your phone a lot you may be better off with something like leather or metal.

Absolutely brilliant book. Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to brush up on your skills, this is worth every penny. Dave McFarland is a knowledgable and able teacher, and is able to explain things in a way that makes sense with real world examples and application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive RPG with a lot of character, 27 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best RPGs I've played this decade, elements of classic class based combat combined with all the fun of creating your own gear and items through mini games and quests. The combat is challenging, but like all great games it leaves you to go at your own pace. The world is surprisingly vast, with lots of places to explore, fish, mine, chop and flower pick in.

Quirky characters and quests keep things interesting, the craft mini games can be a bit repetitive, but ridiculously addictive. I have 3 cats which tag along with me, but there are dogs too. Love this game!
