Revised for PHP 5.4, this edition contains practical code recipes for anyone who uses this scripting language to generate dynamic web content, covering topics that range from beginner questions to advanced web programming techniques.

You’ll find new sections on updated web services, data formats, and 3rd party APIs, as well as revisions to PEAR library use. This cookbook arms PHP developers with important information for key PHP updates, particularly data manipulation, internationalization, database access, security, and testing.

PHP Cookbook includes:

  • Comprehensive coverage of both PHP basics and advanced topics in the vast PHP ecosystem
  • Inforamtion on new PHP language capabilities such as namespaces, closures, and traits
  • Solutions to modern web programming problems like producing and consuming
  • Content on REST APIs, working with third party services, and writing easily testable code.

    Comments about oreilly PHP Cookbook:

    To me, this book is another reference for the part-time development (or rather hacking) that I have to do in PHP. I like the examples and the descriptions. This is one thing I like of O'Reilly books. They are always well organised, and I know what to expect when I buy one of their books.

    Comments about oreilly PHP Cookbook:

    I purchased thios product as I am starting to write my own php code for the web, etc. and I found it to be an excellent way to find snippets of code to assist me in writing larger programmes. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to find methods and functions to make life easier.
    The only thing I don't like about this book is that it gets very technical very early on in the book, but if you can cope with reasonably easy coding you will find this a great book to assist you.
