    Comments about oreilly Learning PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, CSS & HTML5, 3rd Edition:

    O'Reilly books have been a mainstay in my professional library for years. In fact, I have used them as textbook and reference support in my undergraduate and graduate university courses in Computer Science and in my software developer work. I also currently have an ongoing subscription to Safari Books Online (www.safaribooksonline.com) which I highly recommend to anyone teaching a technical curriculum or doing software development. I use the online resources every day. Based on that, I also buy hard copy of the books that show best practices and that provide reference material I need at hand. safaribooksonline provides books and videos from many different publishers including O'Reilly. It is a major technical library which is available 24/7 that I can use anywhere I am including my primary work environment.
