Miles To Go Before I Sleep...
Take PHP out of the classroom and into the real world, with this case study of building a Web-based appointment calendar.

| Online, All The Time |

Web-based calendars are all the rage nowadays. Somehow, there's something very seductive about putting your schedule together on your computer, uploading it to the Web, and accessing it from anywhere on the planet. And with WAP quickly becoming commonplace, you don't even need a Web browser any more - your cellphone has everything you need to connect to your online calendar and make that meeting on time...

Sadly, this tutorial isn't going to teach you how to build a WAP-compatible online scheduler. Nor will it teach you how to synchronize your Palm VII date book with your Yahoo! calendar, your Java-powered wristwatch with your Jini-powered toaster, or any of a million other permutations.

What it will do, however, is offer you some insight into building a simple, extensible and modular PHP-based calendar by combining PHP's date and time functions with a mySQL database. You can then incorporate this calendar module into a larger application, or use it as your personal date book on an Internet Web site or the corporate intranet. Either way, it should offer you some insight into how to apply PHP's capabilities to a real-world problem, and create a simple and elegant solution.

Let's get started!

How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL
How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL, the best-selling book by Melonfire, explains how to take full advantage of PHP's built-in support for MySQL and link the results of database queries to Web pages. You'll get full details on PHP programming and MySQL database development, and then you'll learn to use these two cutting-edge technologies together. Easy-to-follow sample applications include a PHP online shopping cart, a MySQL order tracking system, and a PHP/MySQL news publishing system.
