Dan Scott's Blog:
Book Review - No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP (Build Your Own)
January 10, 2006 @ 06:43:10

From Dan Scott's blog, Coffee|Code, today, there's a new book review of one of the latest books from SitePoint Press - No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP (Build Your Own).

This is an excellent little book if you know your way around PHP but need to start working with XML and need some hands-on examples to complement theory. This book will give you a choice of tools: client-side XML manipulation with browser-based XSLT and EcmaScript DOM, or server-side XML manipulation with PHP extensions for SAX, DOM, SimpleXML, and XML-RPC, along with some criteria for determining which approach to use for different aspects of your project.

Myer is an excellent, enjoyable writer, and the short, clear examples solidify his lessons. For the past few years my bible for XML reference material has been Elliot Rusty Harold's XML in a Nutshell, but No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP (Build Your Own) complements any reference book with its task-oriented introduction to a broad array of XML Web development technologies.

He looks at his first impressions of the book, the intended audience, Myer's writing style, book layout, depth of coverage, and a few inaccuracies and typos. Dan has a pretty comprehensive look at this book - one I'd recommend to anyone looking to find a good book covering XML in PHP.
