I was once a Stupid Sumo.
I first learned to design websites, and could only make static websites.
This means I could add links, images, some text...but I couldn't make the site DO anything cool.
If I wanted to do something as simple as store a user's email address...I had to use third-party services...all because I was a Stupid Sumo.
Fast forward a little and I learned how to make database-driven sites.
I was now entering Smart Sumo territory!
Now I could make my websites FUNCTION.
I could make them STORE INFORMATION.
I could then USE that information and make it OUTPUT different information.
Being able to store, modify and output information is what will take someone from a "designer" to a "pay-me-lots-of-money-because-I'm-a-developer!"
That's why today I'm presenting (in its full Sumo glory) a book called:
"Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP & MySQL"
That title is well...pretty damn self-explanatory!
When you start on this book, you might be a database-virgin.
By the time it's done with you, you'll have "been around the database block" if ya know watta mean ;-)
In fact, here's exactly what you'll be learning:
