Advance Praise for Head First PHP & MySQL

“PHP and MySQL are two of today’s most popular web development technologies, and this book shows readers why. Building a site without them is now as unthinkable as doing web design without CSS. This book is a great introduction and is laugh-out-loud funny. It’s the book I wish I had learned from.”

Harvey Quamen, Associate Professor of English and Humanities Computing, University of Alberta

“Everything we’ve come to accept about the drudgery of technical learning has been abandoned and in its place an unusually fun method for learning is created. I have full confidence that the Head First series will revolutionize the technical publishing industry, and that these new methods will be the eventual standard. I bet my tech-phobic grandmother could pick up PHP and MySQL techniques after a single reading. She’d probably even have a good time doing it!”

Will Harris, Database Administrator, Powered By Geek

“Reading Head First PHP & MySQL is like taking a class from the ‘cool’ teacher. It makes you look forward to learning.”

Stephanie Liese, Web Developer

“Using images and humor the book is easy to digest and yet delivers real technical know-how.”

Jereme Allen, Web Developer

“‘After a challenging, high-speed read-through and lots of quirky “Do This” projects, such as “My dog was abducted by aliens” and the “Mismatch Dating Agency,” I can’t wait to add some real PHP power to my web sites.”
