What is after BUILD YOUR OWN DATABASE DRIVEN WEB SITE?

Hi.

I’de like to ask what is the best book to go and read after I finish ‘‘build your own database driven website using php & mysql’’?

Cheers

The book is currently available as a pdf.

You can give a try to some content management system like Joomla, Wordpress

“The PHP Anthology” published by SitePoint is probably the next book along (of books published by SitePoint). I can’t currently see it listed for sale on the SitePoint site, it may be out of stock or there may be a new version being worked on. It may pay to contact SitePoint HQ to ask what the situation is with the PHP Anthology. You’ll probably still be able to get a copy via an online retailer.

I keep coming back to Kevin’s book - the lessons here can be adapted for any level of php/mysql. I would say the next thing to read is the sitepoint forums as you build your own database from scratch - one more complicated than your jokes database. For example, try doing something with PDFs or images/thumbnails. Have fun!

You might consider learning one of the frameworks. I’d take a look at www.akrabat.com

He wrote a book about the Zend Framework, and has all kinds of great posts on his site. It would help you understand OOP. That’s where I would recommend going next, learning OOP.
