With the surge of popularity of PHP 5, object-oriented programming is now an important consideration for PHP developers. This version-neutral book is a gentle introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP) that won't overburden you with complex theory. It teaches you the essential basics of OOP that you'll need to know before moving onto a more advanced level, and includes a series of prepackaged scripts that you can incorporate into your existing sites with the minimum of effort.
The book follows a standard tutorial-based approach to create, retrieve, update, and delete Drupal 7 entities, their properties and fields. Programming Drupal 7 Entities is perfect for intermediate or advanced developers new to Drupal entity development who are looking to get a good grounding in how to code using the new paradigm. It's assumed that you will have some experience in PHP development already, and being vaguely familiar with Drupal, GIT, and Drush will also help.
Readers can take their PHP skills to the next level with this visual quickpro guide. This step-by-st....

Sams PHP and MySQL Web Development, by Luke Welling and Laura Thomson, showed that there is a strong demand for books that describe how to use PHP together with a specific open-source database to develop Web applications. While MySQL is very popular, PostgreSQL is widely considered to be the more powerful of the two open-source databases. And PostgreSQL is rapidly gaining market share large organizations are beginning to use PostgreSQL instead of Oracle; the demand for PostgreSQL training and support has increased by some accounts 50% in the last six months; and Web hosting services increasingly offer PostgreSQL along with MySQL.
A creative look at the fundamentals of PHP programming, this manual shows practical but atypical examples of PHP code. Theories, considerations, and varying options?such as binary protocols, sharing data, extending PHP with Java, and scaling PHP applications with messaging?are presented as new approaches to solving problems. Taking into consideration operating system level options, this programming reference goes beyond the basics to offer more advanced and innovative options for building PHP applications.
