About the authors

David Powers is an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and author of a series of highly successful books on PHP, including PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy and Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8. As a professional writer, he has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television and more recently with the Internet. His clear writing style is valued not only in the English-speaking world; several of his books have been translated into Spanish and Polish. What started as a mild interest in computing was transformed almost overnight into a passion, when David was posted to Japan in 1987 as BBC correspondent in Tokyo. With no corporate IT department just down the hallway, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. When not tinkering with the innards of his computer, he was reporting for BBC television and radio on the rise and collapse of the Japanese bubble economy. Since leaving the BBC to work independently, he has built up an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. When not pounding the keyboard writing books or dreaming of new ways of using PHP and other programming languages, David enjoys nothing better than visiting his favorite sushi restaurant. He has also translated several plays from Japanese.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The scope of this book is an ambitious one: to provide an intermediate-level guide to the entire new functionality of Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 … via cascading style sheets (CSS) and dynamic interaction with Ajax. … this work is best suited for those Dreamweaver developers who know something about PHP, Ajax, and MySQL, but are looking to extend their skill set to use them together. … Powers provides a logical, well-written book that well serve intermediate developers who are looking to expand their skills … ." (Pascal V. Calarco, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2008)
