Advanced PHP for Flash is the follow-up to the hugely popular Foundation PHP for Flash.
The main aim of this book is to extend the reader's knowledge of using PHP and MySQL to produce dynamic content for Flash. Essentially, it picks up the baton from the first book and runs with it until there's no more road.
The book takes the reader from being an intermediate to an advanced PHP/Flash developer, and helps them create some awesome Flash-based web applications along the way. It covers the core PHP features, as well as some exciting extras, that follow on directly from the knowledge gained in the first chapter, and show the reader how to use them in real-world applications.
This book covers:
- File Uploading
- Advanced MySQL
- Socket Functions
- PHP and XML
- Plus fully functional case studies
This book is aimed squarely at those readers who want to create dynamic Flash-based web applications, and especially at those who have finished the first book and are hungry for more.
As this book is pitched at those with an intermediate knowledge of PHP (and a decent grasp of MySQL) it has the advantage of being useful to both programmers and those coming over from the first book.
A bio is not available for this author.
But not as sad as the bad reviews here.
Apparently, some reviewers didn't take the time
to get familiar with the contents of the book
as stated here before buying it;
nowhere does it say the message board (Flash+PHP+mySQL)
is discussed in the Advanced book.
The sourcecode for that board was part of the "Foundation" book
and can be downloaded from the publishers site.
As to this one: it includes a working chat,
shows you how to build an e-commerce site
(including how to generate a pdf invoice from PHP),
talks about sessions (remembering user info with a handy shopping cart application),
how to let users upload files (jpg's for example to be pulled into Flash later..),
and many more.
Each and every php script has many usefull details
that you'll be able to integrate into your site;
and the Flash part takes full advantage of MX's new features
like loadVars, loading images etc...
Where is there another book integrating PHP and Flash
as closely as this one (and the Foundation one)?!
And best of all, if you ever get stuck,
the people on the support board are always ready to help.
So go ahead and get it.
I highly recommend it.
It covers some advanced topics like sessions and sockets and then goes onto two great (and huge) case studies (a chat room and an e-commerce site). The book finishes with a section which highlights some of the sites that reader of the first book made, which is really cool (and is providing a lot of the topics of conversation on the forum at phpforflash.com).
There is an odd pattern at the bottom of the pages which makes the bottom of the book look like a newspaper when looked edge on, but that's a minor thing - it just looks a bit strange, that's all.
The content of the book is great though - kudos to you Mr Webster (and friends)
This advanced book takes many of the concepts of the first book into deeper application and shows how to work XML into the equation as well in one of my favorite chapters PHP & XML. I can't give a higher recommendation regarding the helpfulness of these books. Well done and thanks!
