Php: The Complete Reference (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.499

PHP: The Complete Reference is a book that provides the readers with key insights into developing dynamic websites using PHP.

Summary Of The Book

PHP is classified as a server-side scripting language that is used for web development, which can also be utilized as a general-purpose programming language. PHP is installed on over 244 million sites and around 2.1 million servers. PHP: The Complete Reference is a guide that provides the readers with key insights into developing dynamic web applications using PHP, which has taken the Internet world by storm. This edition comprises detailed descriptions and downloadable sample code, covering version 5.2 of PHP. Through the course of this book, the readers are guided step-by-step into configuring PHP, developing PHP-enabling web pages, and how to utilize advanced tools.

In total, there are 15 chapters in PHP: The Complete Reference. Some chapters include Introducing Databases, Working with HTML Concepts, Object Oriented Programming, Networking and Reading RSS, Advanced PHP, and Creating Functions. Holzner throws light on ways to personalize the PHP workspace, declare variables and operators, process input from the user, and work with arrays and strings. He also explains ways to access information from a database, utilize cookies for tracking client-side preferences, publish apps to the web, and carry out email and FTP transactions.

Holzner also guides the readers how to work with loops, functions, and variables, along with guidelines on how to integrate forms, radio buttons, checkboxes, text fields, and HTML controls. He also talks about writing MySQL scripts to extract, update and modify information in a database, and develop AJAX-enabled web pages. The readers are also given insights into drawing graphics on the server, along with developing XML components and adding RSS feeds.

FLIPKART...and COMPLETE REFERENCE...need i say more??

Flipkart is Flipkart. Timely delivery. Some would say too soon. Got the book on the 2nd day from the date of ordering. Great condition...wid a pretty bookmark too :)

About the book. It is a complete reference. You will have a tough time if you plan to learn PHP from scratch then you should look at something else, although I know a couple of people who did learn it using the same book. BUT, if you already know the basics then this book is all you want.

PHP: Complete Referenced is detailed. Detailed to the limit that it might be difficult to track down something in particular. But that is...

PHP: Complete Referenced is detailed. Detailed to the limit that it might be difficult to track down something in particular. But that is because of the language and I doubt you will find a book that is detailed and "organised".

In Short, go for this book if you know the basics of the language. You will not find a better reference guide anywhere. But if you plan to learn the language from step 1 then you will need a Beginners Edition of some kind.

Detailed in every way, but lacks Organization

First of all many many thanks to Flipkart for their prompt services. I have gone through the book and must say it's thoroughly detailed and covers every aspect of this vast subject. BUT the book does lack organization in categorizing and properly stepping the methods and hence might get confusing for newbies. Overall, I give it a 4/5 stars. Matter is exceptional, but there is room to improve the presentation :)

only for very very beginners

This is a book for very beginners of programming where you will be taught what is a class and object and similar basic things and nothing then after. Similarly for other topics, they all talk about very basic things of programming and don't go to any advance level discussion. Also very very unstructured in choosing the topics and presenting them. I went with the name complete reference but there is nothing which can be refereed into this book while doing actual programming. Buy only when you have absolutely zero knowledge about php or even general programming. not at all for advanced level... ()

Another thing about the shipping of this book. The book was handed for delivery the same day to courier and that too in Bangalore itself. They could have delivered the very next day but then holded for 2 days before giving to me. I guess the reason is that i didn't choose one or two day delivery for which i had to pay extra. Very bad practice,Flipkart!!! we aim to buy the product and not the delivery method. Your one day or two day delivery method should be a way to help me get the product earlier and not the other way round. If it was possible to deliver it earlier then it should have been delivered.

Not Good.

Just a bunch of unnecessary paragraphs to increase the number of pages. It doesn't guide you good. I was looking for a book that could guide me from the start.
