    Section 1 is a quick-start course that shows how to use the latest versions of PHP, MySQL (or MariaDB), and the Apache web server to build your first PHP applications. Right from the start, you'll learn to create applications that conform to the MVC pattern, so they'll be easier to maintain as they grow. In addition, you'll learn how to create applications that prevent SQL injection attacks and guard against XSS attacks.

    Section 2 takes you deeper into PHP by covering the skills you'll use every day, like how to work with form data, dates, arrays, sessions, cookies, functions, objects, regular expressions, and exceptions. Likewise, Section 3 dives into MySQL, teaching you how to design and create a database, as well as how to access and maintain database data from your PHP programs. Finally, Section 4 teaches you important web programming skills like how to secure web pages, send email, upload files, and process images.

    Along the way, you'll find out how to take advantage of PHP 7 enhancements like scalar data type declarations and improved error handling, as well as new operators and functions.

    Complete sample applications and chapter exercises provide training support throughout. A great choice for any developer who wants to master PHP without a lot of frustration and unnecessary expense.

    PHP: The Ultimate Crash Course To Learn PHP with Practical Computer Coding Exercises
     
    Product Description:

    80% of the top 10 million websites use PHP, hence you cannot ignore the power of PHP

    If you thought that PHP is dead then you are wrong. It's still alive and kicking. In terms of market share, there are over 20 million websites and application on the internet developed using PHP scripting language.

    PHP is particularly popular for freelance work, since many small businesses or non-technical people would want to use WordPress, Wix, or other popular content management systems to set up their websites or shopping carts.

    It’d only benefit you by learning one of the most popular languages of modern web development!

    Though it's not on most people’s list of things to learn these days, it's still a great programming language to learn, and if decide to learn PHP, then this book is a good starting point. In this book, you will learn the fundamentals of PHP, and the benefits are:

    • PHP is open source and free.
    • Short learning curve compared to other languages such as JSP, ASP etc.
    • Large community document
    • Most web hosting servers support PHP by default unlike other languages such as ASP that need IIS. This makes PHP a cost-effective choice.
    • PHP is regular updated to keep abreast with the latest technology trends.
    • Other benefit you get with PHP is that it’s a server-side scripting language; this means you only need to install it on the server and client computers requesting for resources from the server do not need to have PHP installed; only a web browser would be enough.

    If you’re already familiar with another programming language and want to learn about the fundamentals of PHP programming, you’ll find the flow of this book to be an ideal fit!
