"The Linux Web Server CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0": A Bookshelf of LAMP Technology On a Single CD
Sebastopol, CA--If you knew in advance what questions you were going to
have to answer in the course of your work, then easy access to
reference books wouldn't be an issue. But as many web developers and
programmers know, you're more likely to face a pop quiz than a test
you've prepared for. The truth is that the information you need to do
your job can easily fill a book--many books. When you need an answer
quickly and don't want to manually search through volume after
volume--or happen to be away from your bookshelf--The Linux Web Server
CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0 (O'Reilly US $119.95) provides the solution.
The latest addition to O'Reilly's popular CD Bookshelf series brings
Linux users an up-to-date, exhaustive reference library of LAMP
technologies (that is, Linux-Apache-MySQL-Perl/PHP/Python) on a single
CD, so being without their favorite reference book is a not a situation
they're likely to face.
Open source innovation has given rise to many valuable tools and
technologies, including some of the most powerful and popular web
development tools available. LAMP technologies provide a great
application development platform, especially for robust web
applications that run on Linux servers. Solid, reliable, and
affordable, it's no wonder that LAMP is the platform of choice for web
For years, O'Reilly's bestselling LAMP books have helped programmers
master the finer points of these open source tools. The new version of
"The Linux Web Server CD Bookshelf" offers six top titles on one CD,
providing programmers the tools they need to develop their own systems
and get started with open source web development using LAMP
technologies. This CD Bookshelf delivers more than 3,600 pages of
easily searchable information in a convenient format accessible from
any web browser. Included in the CD Bookshelf are the latest,
unabridged versions of the following:
As a bonus, the paperback version of "Linux in a Nutshell, Fourth
Edition," is included as well.
For the first time, this CD Bookshelf also includes valuable content
straight from the O'Reilly Network. Some of the topics covered are:
Cache Friendly Web, The Apache Toolbox, MySQL Best Practices,
Internationalization and Localization with PHP, Choosing a Templating
System, PostgreSQL's Multi-Version Concurrency Control, Embedded Linux,
No one knows LAMP like O'Reilly. If you're a developer, you probably
count on the O'Reilly affiliates Apacheweek.com, MySQL.com, and
Perl.com as valuable sources of information, as well as the great
Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Python content found on the O'Reilly Network.
We're advocates of LAMP and use it extensively on the O'Reilly Network.
If you want to get the most out of these important tools, then "The
Linux Web Server CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0" delivers an entire library
of expert knowledge to your computer desktop.
