Review of Ajax And Php: Building Responsive Web Applications

Category: Book Reviews

On the Smart Pad Blog today, there’s a book review for the Packt book “Ajax and PHP: Building Responsive Web Applications” by Diane Cipollo.

This book assumes a working knowledge of PHP, XML, JavaScript and MySQL and that you have PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin and a server such as Apache installed on your computer. In this book the authors, Cristian Darie, Bogdan Brinzarea, Filip Chereches-Tosa and Mihai Bucica, teach their readers how to add Ajax client-side features to PHP driven web applications.

She basically just gives a summary of what the book covers – everything from the most basic “what is Ajax and how does it work” all the way out to various projects that the book walks you through. These include an Ajax chat application, Google Suggest-style search functionality, and an RSS reader. She also mentions the supporting site provided by Packt for the book as well.
