Overview book :
Beginning PHP and MySQL PDF : Most great programming books sway far more toward the realm of the practical than of the academic. Although I have no illusions regarding my place among the great technical authors of our time, it is always my goal to write with this point in mind, producing material that you can apply to your own situation. Given the size of this book, it’s probably apparent that I attempted to squeeze out every last drop of such practicality from the subject matter. That said, if you’re interested in gaining practical and comprehensive insight into the PHP programming language and MySQL database server, and how these prominent technologies can be used together to create dynamic, database-driven Web applications, this book is for you.

In many ways the PHP language is representative of the stereotypical open source project, created to meet a developer’s otherwise unmet needs and refined over time to meet the needs of its growing community. As a budding PHP developer, it’s important you possess some insight into how the language has progressed, as it will help you to understand the language’s strengths, and to some extent the reasoning behind its occasional idiosyncrasies.
Additionally, because the language is so popular, having some understanding of the differences between the versions—most notably versions 4, 5, and 6—will help when evaluating Web hosting providers and PHP-driven applications for your own needs.
Believe it or not, the MySQL relational database server was born out of an internal company project spearheaded by employees of the Sweden-based TcX DataKonsult AB (AB is an abbreviation for Aktiebolag, which is the Swedish term for corporation). Their project, dubbed MySQL, was first released to the general public at the end of 1996. The software proved so popular that in 2001 they founded a company based entirely around MySQL-specific service and product offerings, calling it MySQL AB.
From its first public release in 1996, MySQL’s developers placed particular emphasis on software performance and scalability. The result was a highly optimized product that was lacking in many features considered standard for enterprise database products: stored procedures, triggers, and transactions, for example. Yet the product caught the attention of a vast number of users who were more interested in speed and scalability than in capabilities that would, in many cases, often go unused anyway. Subsequent versions included additional features, which attracted even more users. MySQL has been downloaded more than 100 million times in its lifetime, with more than 50,000 daily downloads (http://www.mysql.com/company/factsheet.html).
These users include some of the most widely known companies and organizations in the world, such as Yahoo!, CNET Networks, NASA, The Weather Channel, Google, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and Cisco Systems (http://www.mysql.com/customers/). Later, this chapter takes a closer look at how a few of these users are putting MySQL to work and, in some cases, saving millions of dollars in the process.
