About this title
PHP is the hottest thing in Web development today, with over 30 million Web sites currently using the technology. Programmers are scrambling to get as much information as they can to stretch their use of PHP to the limits, and this book will help you do just that. In it you will find practical, but atypical, examples of PHP coding.

Author Kevin Schroeder is a Technology Evangelist for Zend TechnologiesThe PHP Companywith an in-depth knowledge of the language and an innovative approach to development. He shows PHP solutions and examples you won't find in other books: binary protocols, character encoding, asynchronous operations, structured file access, daemons, and much more.

There are quite literally hundreds of books of the build a Web site in PHP genre, but this is not your typical how-to PHP 101 book. No, this book is for the creative and the curious. It is a what's possible book. Creative PHP types who have already purchased a book on PHP and want to go beyond the basics into what is possible, not just practical, will find it especially useful. Curious PHP types who have written a fair amount of PHP code but are now ready to go deeper, into the lower-level aspects of PHP, will also be inspired by what this book has to offer.

You Want to Do What with PHP? is like a PHP cookbook. It contains not just theories, but also considerations and varying options on top of simply providing code. With it, you will discover new approaches to problem-solving using PHP, expand your development skill set, and gain valuable assistance toward building ever more advanced PHP applications.

With You Want to Do What with PHP? you will:
  • Become a better PHP programmer
  • Discover unusual, but practical, solutions to problems you will face on a weekly, if not daily, basis
  • Learn lower-level programming that is not typical for Web-based applications
  • Discern why operating-system-level options matter when devising solutions
About author
Kevin Schroeder
Kevin Schroeder has a memory TTL of 10 years, and so he has been working with PHP for longer than he can remember. This is his third book on PHP, preceded by The IBM i Programmer's Guide to PHP (MC Press, 2009) and You Want to Do WHAT with PHP? (MC Press, 2010). Kevin is a member of the Zend Certification Advisory Board and is a Magento Certified Developer Plus. He has spoken at numerous conferences, including ZendCon, where he was twice the MC.

When his head isn't in code (if code is poetry, then it is Vogon poetry), Kevin is writing music, having been a guitarist since hair bands were cool (and having survived their welcomed demise). He has recorded two albums, Coronal Loop Safari and Loudness Wars.

Kevin's wisdom is dispensed to his loyal followers on Twitter as @kpschrade and on his blog at, where he speaks in the first person.
