About a year ago, I

About a year ago, I began learning PHP and MySQL through a number of good books out there. It’s not easy to learn Web programming on a Mac, but it’s getting easier. I purchased the first edition of Kevin Yank’s Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL. I learned enough from that book (or not) to purchase the second edition, which is slightly more tailored for the Mac OS X-head. Setting up PHP and MySQL on your Mac is less than easy, but I’ve done it and I’m no programmer, which I hope may give the aspiring graphic-based Web developer hope.
