Book Review: No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP

March 5, 2006

No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP

The book stays true to its title with a very direct approach to learning XML integration with PHP. XML beginners will appreciate the introduction of concepts such as DTD, XSLT among others.

Building a Content Management System (CMS) with XML and PHP is the main project of the book. It has a brief introduction of what a CMS is and goes directly in to code. Some of the topics that are touched are RSS, Web Services and Javascript (Although AJAX is not discussed entirely).

Newbies may be frustrated with seeng a lot of code in a book– Almost every other page has code blocks , but like any other Sitepoint title, all code is available online.

PHP Developers will definitely have a field day with Thomas Myer's No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP; it almost instantly gives the reader/developer to try out the concepts and code and avoids the 'nonsense.'
