Ever since I can remember I’ve been writing code. I can honestly say I cut my milk teeth coding and I simply grew from there. I really enjoyed learning to program in PHP5
Today I’m still coding, nothing fascinates me more, (except perhaps Digital Marketing). Creating the perfect UI, that delights users across all display sizes and resolutions, using HTML5 / CSS3 and a responsive framework makes me get up in the mornings and switch on my laptop.
Serverside programming using PHP and MySQL as the programming environment and RDBMS of choice are two other areas that I believe are really hot today and therefore of huge interest to programmers worldwide.
At various tech meetups I attend, I’m often asked to name some good PHP books, which handle PHP programming in a way that it is easy to read and understand, and apply to real world situations.
I thought that I’d create a Blog post on this specific topic and share information publicly. This way when I’m asked to recommend PHP books I can simply pass on this Blog post URL and drive some focused traffic to my Blog site. This information ought to be of real value to my readers as well as to me.
Here are six great PHP books available for free download in PDF format that would be of real help for all those who want to become PHP programmers.
Oh! Did I mention? There are a ton of well paying PHP programming jobs available in software development houses that are starved for good PHP programmers.
I hope these books would be of real value to you. I also welcome your suggestions about PHP books that you’ve studied from and really liked. Do not hesitate to add these titles in the comments section below and let all my Blog post readers benefit. I would be grateful that you did.
