This book is for people who want to learn to build web applications with PHP. It doesn't focus on PHP programming, but shows how PHP can be used to serve dynamic web pages. You'll discover all the basic ingredients of a web application. We won't use a framework like Symfony or Laravel, we'll only work with plain PHP. This allows us to focus on the core ideas, instead of how a particular framework implements them.

After reading this book you'll know how to use multiple web technologies like POST requests, forms, sessions, and redirects to build a CRUD application with an authentication system.
