5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to learn good technique quickly, 21 Jun. 2003
This review is from: PHP for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
I wasn't at first looking to break into PHP programming on a big scale, just to look into it and see what I could pick up and use for my website plus to help out with some coding for the LotR Forums who run a RPG game that benefits from a PHP Battle Calculator. However, what I picked up from the Visual Quick Start book more than whetted my appetite to learn more about the versatile PHP language. I was surprised just how good this book was at reducing the usually steep learning curve for any programming language and found myself coding within such a short time. It does suffer a little from being a bit of a cookbook for recipe functions so it helps to have had some experience at programming to help you break down the code and adapt it to your own needs, but saying that they do go to lengths to show you stage by stage break downs of the code, so that helps a lot. Now I'm eager to find a more advanced PHP book to supplement this book that really lives up to the title of being both 'visual' and a 'quickstart' into PHP programming. A definite 'must have' for anyone looking to start coding in this language.
