Hacking with PHP
by Paul Hudson
Number of pages: 323
I have written this book with the goal of making the task of learning PHP something fun that you do not have to worry about. As such, you will find lots of information for newcomers, even those who have not programmed much before. On the other end of the scale, I must admit that I have worked hard to put in this book lots of information on advanced functionality in PHP – if you are a veteran user looking to take your PHP skills above and beyond where they are right now, I am hoping you will find there is lots to be had here.
