Hi Grp +(Hacks)


Programmers love its flexibility and speed; designers love its
accessibility and convenience. When it comes to creating web sites, the
PHP scripting language is truly a red-hot property. In fact, PHP is
currently used on more than 19 million web sites, surpassing
Microsoft's ASP .NET technology in popularity. Not surprisingly, this
surge in usage has resulted in a number of PHP books hitting the
market. Only one, though, takes the language beyond traditional Web
programming and into mapping, graphing, multimedia, and beyond: PHP
Hacks. In PHP Hacks, author Jack Herrington wrings out his 20 years of
code generation experience to deliver hands-on tools ranging from basic
PHP and PEAR installation and scripting to advanced multimedia and
database optimizing tricks. On the practical side of things, PHP Hacks
helps you develop more robust PHP applications by explaining how to
improve your database design, automate application testing, and employ
design patterns in your PHP scripts and classes. In the category of
"cool," Herrington explains how to upgrade your Web interface through
the creation of tabs, stickies, popups, and calendars. He even examines
how to leverage maps and graphics in PHP. There's also a bounty of
image and application hacks, including those that show you how to:
Integrate web sites with Google maps and satellite imaging Dynamically
display iPhoto libraries online Add IRC, SMS, and Instant Messaging
capabilities to your Web applications Drop the latest Wikipedia
dictionary onto your Sony PSP Render graphics and user interfaces with
SVG, DHTML, and Ajax Whether you're a newcomer or an expert, you'll
find great value in PHP Hacks, the only PHP guide that offers something
useful and fun for everyone.
