DevShed launches a new tutorial series today with this new article, an introductory look at using the PDO objects in PHP5.
As you may have seen at first glance, the PDO extension looks really useful in certain situations. In this three-part series, I'm going to introduce its most important features, by accompanying the corresponding theoretical concepts with numerous hands-on examples, in this way facilitating the respective learning curve.
They start the series off with a look at using the extension and connecting to a resource (in their case, a MySQL database). Then, it's on to performing queries and grabbing the last inserted IDs for the rows your script just put in.
