Learning PHP, MySQL & JavaScript

Learning PHP, MySQL & JavaScript

Author: Robin Nixon

Adding one more language into the mix is the book Learning PHP, MySQL & JavaScript. This covers backend PHP/SQL along with frontend JavaScript to create custom Ajax web apps.

Because of newer libraries like React.js these techniques may be a bit outdated. However that’s only true if you want to build dynamic single-page apps without using PHP classes.

Anyone willing to learn traditional coding should absolutely learn the basics of JavaScript and Ajax. This book covers it all in spades including regular expressions, JS security, and error handling with PHP/JS.
