PHP Book

Front cover of Web Publishing with PHP and FileMaker 9 by Jonathan Stark

Web Publishing with PHP and FileMaker 9 is now available in stores and at Amazon. You can also purchase a Rough Cut of the book from the O'Reilly website which will give you instant access to the book in PDF format. If you are looking for the sample files that come with the book, they can be downloaded here.

Please note that the PHP differences between FileMaker 9 and FileMaker 10, 11, and 12 are basically non-existent. That being the case, the publisher and I decided to save a few trees and not reprint the whole book just to do a find and replace on the version numbers.

Praise for the book

Jonathan Stark is a true master of his craft. His teaching style combines the highest level of instruction with a logical structure and approachability that is as easy to follow for a raw novice as a seasoned expert. I wish I'd had this book when I was getting my start: I could have hit the ground running with a good breadth of knowledge, rather than pecking away one function at a time on my own.
Jonathan Stark's "Web Publishing with PHP and FileMaker 9" is the essential introduction to the greatest era of FileMaker web technology. Simple and straight forward, Jonathan lays down the foundation for deploying and developing FileMaker and PHP applications. If you are considering the integration of FileMaker databases with the web scripting language PHP here is the resource you're looking for from an author who has spent years helping to blaze the trail.
Over the holiday break I had some time to read (a better word might be "consume") Jonathan Stark's book "Web Publishing with PHP and FileMaker 9." In a little more than 250 pages, Jonathan manages to do the impossible: He explains how to put the FileMaker API for PHP to use. If you are looking for a good book on PHP and FileMaker integration -- whether you are new to the topic or consider yourself to be a pro -- then I highly recommend picking up a copy of "Web Publishing with PHP and FileMaker 9."
