List of books I have recently read... or started to read.

PHP Ajax Cookbook

Wow... this was a free epub from Packt, and was inundated with code foobar. Spent more time fixing code than learning from it.

I understand writing a book is no easy task, but I would have been ashamed to be listed as one of the "Reviewers"... or the "Proofreader"... or the "Technical Editors"... within the book credits.

Beginning AngularJS

Author:Andrew Grant
Release Date:December 2014

Categories:angular.js javascript work

This was an "actual" introduction to AngularJS, never once had to npm install...

Learning Web Development with Bootstrap and AngularJS

Author:Stephen Radford
Publisher:Packt Publishing
Release Date:May 2015
Completed:July 2017
Categories:angular.js javascript work

I went through the entire book running the examples on a LAMP stack. Successfully.

The Laravel, Node, NPM, Grunt, Gulp and Less items were not actually on my todo list when I started the book, but I did pick up a few things.

Prior knowledge is required before reading this, at least be prepared to do some research.
