"At long last, here is the perfect book to recommend to anyone who is considering adopting PHP for IBM i development."--Mike Pavlak, Solutions Consultant, Zend Technologies, Inc.
This is the first book to comprehensively address the PHP programming language and how it can--and should--be deployed on IBM i. With this IBM i-specific point of view, the authors examine how to transfer skills from a green-screen environment to the Web, become intimately familiar with PHP's commonly used features, and help start down the road of highly interactive Web-based application development.
For decades, the green screen has been the ubiquitous interface into an organization's data. But with the advent of HTML, the Internet, and the browser, combined with end users' existing familiarity with the Web, green-screen developers are seeing much of the demand for their skills diminish in favor of more Web-enabled technologies. One of those technologies is the PHP programming language.
A flexible, forgiving programming style makes PHP easier to learn and is just one of the many reasons PHP tops the list when developers seek to improve their Web-related skills. While not limited to Web development, PHP is designed from the ground up to be the ideal environment to easily build simple or complex Web-based applications in the most effective manner possible, while still giving programmers the control they need.
