Fantastic book on dynamic website design,
This review is from: Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8 (Paperback)What an awesome book! Never have I read a computing / programming book which is so clearly written and well-structured. I rarely leave feedback after I purchase books, but this one really deserves a mention. The entire book is superbly written, with plenty of screenshots on each page, so you can follow the author's writing with ease. It's all based around a case-study with sensible ideas, such as a blog with images, and even how to restrict access to password-protected areas. At the end of each chapter, you really do feel like you've achieved so much. Upon completion of the book, I now have a good grasp of the PHP language, SQL database design, how to set up a local testing server, and much more. Also, I've been using Dreamweaver for a few years now, yet the author drops in quite a lot of good hints & tips of what you can do with the software, which I didn't even know were possible!
I really can't praise this book highly enough! If you want to learn about dynamic website design, this book will get you on your way in no time!
