View Full Version : Good book for an intermediate PHP programmer

04-16-2003, 03:18 AM
I started (and "tought" myself) PHP by looking at source code from a game

Well, since then, I've gotten no advance. Anybody know of any good books that don't start with echo "hello world"? Thanks :-)

Just go straight to the documentation @ php.net and look at example codes online to understand how people use the language.

I second duniyadnd on that one. I bought O'Reiley's PHP book and it hasn't been too useful yet. I have found the online php.net documentation to be a lot better at quick look-ups and learning the language in general.

I use 'Professional PHP programming" From WROX.

It doesn't start with echo 'hello world', and has some pretty good examples.

I use PHP.net the most now. But I started with the book.
