Hey, I want to learn JAVA and PHP and need a decent beginners book that actually teaches the language, not just decent as a reference manual. And no, code academy and online tutorials won't work. I'm looking for a great paper page book. Any thoughts?

Is this your first experience with programming?

No, I took c and c++/c# a few years ago and understand the logic of programming, I just need a decent way and examples to learn the new ones. I learned SQL in about thirty minutes, but realize I need java and php to trigger the sql events. I just haven't find a book that satisfies both a comprehensive guide and the beginner to java and php qualifiers in the reviews. And yes, I googled, Amazon, and reddited for recommendations hags

You must have missed the java logo at the bottom

>>6809599
If you already know the basics there shouldn't be that much that you're missing. Just google enough to implement a few data structures in either language and you'll be all set. PHP has really good documentation pages anyway.
>>
Head first has a pretty decent starter book, no?
>>
>>6809596
Really no C?

nice thread

If you're willing to learn python first, check out MIT OCW's introductory course.
>>
>>6812629
While I always recommend a Python > C > C++, etc learning path and MIT OCW is amazing at python, what OP wants is a quick reference for Java and PHP to apply once and forget. He isn't interested in CS or software dev.
>>
>>6812654
I'm interested too, I want a practical introduction to databases, big data, etc but not too profound.
>>
>>6809585
How sure are you you want to learn JAVA? I would rethink this.
>>
>>6812673
SQL is largely "for" large-scale database work.
