    Still have the first edition of this book on my bookshelf — the first book I read on PHP/MySQL and backend web development. Congrats on the latest edition! I’m recommending it to a non-programmer friend. :)

    Sounds great! :) This just went to my recommendations list.

    Fantastic Book. I loved the earlier editions and this seems to be even better with the new advanced content. Great job.

    Hey Kevin Yank,
    Its like I know you. Do you still play with “Ipad. Can you use Ipad to develop web apps conveniently. I use Ubuntu now and learning AWS ropes. Thank you if you take your time to answer. Your intro had the right effect on me. Buy buy buy.

    Glad to see it’s getting a proper overhaul. The previous books were too lightweight for my taste.

  • Jacob

    Does Kevin finally make the leap to present everything as OOP? If not, its just more old wine on new bottles. We need a beginner PHP-book that starts people up on OOP from scratch, not another procedural basics book that schools people up in a programming paradigm that more and more people are moving away from anyway. Just my two cents.

  • Craig

    Just a bit of thanks for that terrific book in 2001 that got me started in the real world of web development and career that I love.

  • Bob

    You have me sold as long as Kevin doesn’t expect everyone to convert to OOP, which is supposedly new school and a new programming paradigm, but just ends of making people produce three times as much code for doing something that is easily done with easy to follow procedural programming. I absolutely loath OOP, and for many very good reasons. I’ve tried it and often said to myself, why am I here writing 300 lines of code when 20 lines will do the exact same thing. Totally useless. No to OOP!
