Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Fourth Edition is a major update of W. Jason Gilmore's authoritative book on PHP and MySQL. The fourth edition includes complete coverage of PHP 5.3 features, including namespacing, an update of AMP stack installation and configuration, updates to Zend Framework, coverage of MySQL Workbench, and much more. You'll not only receive extensive introductions to the core features of PHP, MySQL, and related tools, but you'll also learn how to effectively integrate them in order to build robust data-driven applications. Gilmore has seven years of experience working with these technologies, and he has packed this book with practical examples and insight into the real-world challenges faced by developers. Accordingly, you will repeatedly return to this book as both a valuable instructional tool and reference guide. What you’ll learn How to install and configure Apache, PHP 5.3, and MySQL PHP and object-oriented programming basics New PHP 5.3 features and how to use them How to move beyond basic PHP, including using the Zend Framework How to use MySQL to securely store your website's data How to use MySQL Workbench to manage your database Who this book is for Developers who want to harness PHP and MySQL to create powerful web applications Table of Contents Introducing PHP Configuring Your Environment PHP Basics Functions Arrays Object-Oriented PHP Advanced OOP Features Error and Exception Handling Strings and Regular Expressions Working with the File and Operating System PEAR Date and Time Forms Authenticating Your Users Handling File Uploads Networking PHP and LDAP Session Handlers Templating with Smarty Web Services Secure PHP Programming Integrating jQuery and PHP Building Web Sites for the World MVC and the Zend Framework Introducing MySQL Installing and Configuring MySQL The Many MySQL Clients MySQL Storage Engines and Datatypes Securing MySQL Using PHP with MySQL Introducing PDO Stored Routines MySQL Triggers MySQL Views Practical Database Queries Indexes and Searching Transactions Importing and Exporting Data

Innovations in hardware architecture, like hyper-threading or multicore processors, mean that parallel computing resources are available for inexpensive desktop computers. In only a few years, many standard software products will be based on concepts of parallel programming implemented on such hardware, and the range of applications will be much broader than that of scientific computing, up to now the main application area for parallel computing. Rauber and Rünger take up these recent developments in processor architecture by giving detailed descriptions of parallel programming techniques that are necessary for developing efficient programs for multicore processors as well as for parallel cluster systems and supercomputers. Their book is structured in three main parts, covering all areas of parallel computing: the architecture of parallel systems, parallel programming models and environments, and the implementation of efficient application algorithms. The emphasis lies on parallel programming techniques needed for different architectures. The main goal of the book is to present parallel programming techniques that can be used in many situations for many application areas and which enable the reader to develop correct and efficient parallel programs. Many examples and exercises are provided to show how to apply the techniques. The book can be used as both a textbook for students and a reference book for professionals. The presented material has been used for courses in parallel programming at different universities for many years.
