This book is the follow-up to Dreamweaver MX / PHP Web Development - the book described as the very best book I have ever seen dealing with databases and web programming by Matt Brown, Macromedia's Dreamweaver and Contribute Community Manager. But you don't need to have read that book ; any experience of developing PHP sites with Dreamweaver MX or UltraDev is a great starting point. This book takes your PHP sites beyond the basic functions provided by server behaviors. It teaches you PHP, from the syntax to full applications, from the point of view of a Dreamweaver user. Two practical cas studies are built up : an on-line training log and a complete content management system.
