The Ultimate Beginner's Guide To Learning SQL - From Retrieving Data To Creating Databases! Structured Query Language or SQL (pronounced sequel by many) is the most widely used programming language used in database management and is the standard language for Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). SQL programming allows users to return, analyze, create, manage and delete data within a database – all within a few commands. With more industries and organizations looking to the power of data, the need for an efficient, scalable solution for data management is required. More often than not, organizations implement a Relational Database Management System in one form or another. These systems create long-term data “warehouses” that can be easily accessed to return and analyze results, such as, “Show me all of the clients from Canada that have purchased more than $20,000 in the last 3 years.” This “query,” which would have taken an extensive amount of hands-on research to complete prior to the use of database, can now be determined in seconds by executing a simple SELECT SQL statement on a database. SQL can seem daunting to those with little to zero programming knowledge and can even pose a challenge to those that have experience with other languages. Most resources jump right into the technical jargon and are not suited for someone to really grasp how SQL Actually Works. That’s why we created this book. Our goal here is simple: show you exactly everything you need to know to utilize SQL in whatever capacity you may need in simple, easy to follow concepts. Our book provides Multiple Step-by-Step Examples of how to master these SQL concepts to ensure you know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it every step of the way. This book will allow you to successfully go from knowing absolutely nothing about SQL to being able to quickly retrieve and analyze data from multiple tables. Step-by-step we will Walk You Through the Fundamentals of Understanding How a Relational Database is Structured to how to execute Complex SELECT Statements to return large datasets from your database.

This is the second edition of David Powers' highly-respected PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy. This new edition has been updated by David to incorporate changes to PHP since the first edition and to offer the latest techniques—a classic guide modernized for 21st century PHP techniques, innovations, and best practices. You want to make your websites more dynamic by adding a feedback form, creating a private area where members can upload images that are automatically resized, or perhaps storing all your content in a database. The problem is, you're not a programmer and the thought of writing code sends a chill up your spine. Or maybe you've dabbled a bit in PHP and MySQL, but you can't get past baby steps. If this describes you, then you've just found the right book. PHP and the MySQL database are deservedly the most popular combination for creating dynamic websites. They're free, easy to use, and provided by many web hosting companies in their standard packages. Unfortunately, most PHP books either expect you to be an expert already or force you to go through endless exercises of little practical value. In contrast, this book gives you real value right away through a series of practical examples that you can incorporate directly into your sites, optimizing performance and adding functionality such as file uploading, email feedback forms, image galleries, content management systems, and much more. Each solution is created with not only functionality in mind, but also visual design. But this book doesn't just provide a collection of ready-made scripts: each PHP Solution builds on what's gone before, teaching you the basics of PHP and database design quickly and painlessly. By the end of the book, you'll have the confidence to start writing your own scripts or—if you prefer to leave that task to others—to adapt existing scripts to your own requirements. Right from the start, you're shown how easy it is to protect your sites by adopting secure coding practices. What you’ll learn Updates to the first edition with the latest PHP techniques for modern, dynamic web design Create dynamic websites with design and usability in mind, as well as functionality Understand how PHP scripts work, giving you confidence to adapt them to your own needs Bring online forms to life, check required fields, and ensure user input is safe to process Upload files and automatically create thumbnails from larger images Manage website content with a searchable database Who this book is for This is a "must have" reference book for any Web developer using PHP scripting language. If you have read the first edition classic, then this update will bring you the latest PHP techniques and best practices. If you are new to dynamic web design with PHP, then David will introduce you to the core techniques and methods for dynamic PHP web sites, ready for the 21st century! Table of Contents What Is PHP—And Why Should I Care? Getting Ready to Work with PHP How to Write PHP Scripts Lightening Your Workload with Includes Bringing Forms to Life Uploading Files Using PHP to Manage Files Generating Thumbnail Images Pages That Remember: Simple Login and Multipage Forms Getting Started with MySQL Connecting to MySQL with PHP and SQL Creating a Dynamic Online Gallery Managing Content Formatting Text and Dates Pulling Data from Multiple Tables Managing Multiple Database Tables Authenticating Users with a Database
