Half of the internet runs on PHP, a language which was not nitially intended to be used for actual programs.

But an often overlooked fact is that people are looking out for you; that is what half of all books are.

I am a web developer myself and I can quite easily ( and truthfully) state that th nove an take somebody from being ble to get an anchor in HTML to accessing databases ( PHP, AJAX, and MySQL), utilizing AJAX ( JavaScript and jQuery), creating dynamic and variable pages ( JavaScript, CSS, and jQuery), creating absolutely wonderful designs ( CSS), and being lazy efficient, quick, and powerful ( jQuery and HTML5).

It has a companion website, enabling quick access to examples, letting you try it all out yourself.

It 's great to see MySQL ( a database), JavaScript ( a programming language that runs in the web browser),& PHP ( a language that runs on the web erver) taught together so one gets sense of how they interact& why you would need all three to create dynamic sites.

It as often a nice touch that the final chapter involves creating a social networking site, since that appeals to a lot of people& is the ort of site which people both understand& are fascinated with.But this book also frustrated me at several points.

For nstance, I 'm actually not sure what the best ay to write large blocks of HTML using PHP is, whether it 's multi-line echo statements, templating, or repeatedly closing& opening PHP tags inside a larger HTML document.In any case, " Creating Dynamic Websites " is great introduction to some useful& important web development tools.

I do feel a general foundation of how internet programming/coding works is essential to dive right in, but I am by no means a professional or even at the intermediate level of many of thos things and I nderstood everything pretty well.

I ish there were more references to all the built-in functions of the languages in the appendix but these are readily available on the developer sites for both MySQL and PHP.
