Foreword

Foreword

Listen to podcasts by Jono Bacon and friends at LUG Radio (http://www.lugradio.org) and you get a sense of both the spirit and thoughtfulness Jono brings to the open source community. At one moment they speak seriously about hurdles in contributing code to free software projects, while the next they offer a Monty Python-like discussion on which Linux distribution each of them most resembles.

Practical PHP and MySQL reflects Jono's commitment to the spirit of making open source subjects accessible to everyone. The book carefully walks you through the code for eight useful, dynamic Web applications. Projects are presented in a playful way, like the forum project that touts horror movies that make you "hide behind the couch." And everything in the book can be run live, modified, saved, and reused from the included live CD.

Although the tools you need to create Web content are readily available from the open source community, having a skillful guide like Jono Bacon to help you create dynamic Web applications from those tools is a real treat. The results form a foundation for developing your own blogs, forums, shopping carts, and other Web destinations that should significantly cut your startup time.

I am thrilled to have Jono Bacon's Practical PHP and MySQL as one of the first books in the Negus Live Linux Series. Its content perfectly suits the goals of the series to put quality free and open source software covering various topics into peoples' hands so they can quickly get high-quality results. I hope you enjoy learning from this book as much as I have.
