With the continued increase in popularity in Linux server and desktop installations, Windows programmers are eagerly eying a new market for application development. Linux AppDev represents the largest brand new market for programmers in years, and wise developers are going to start getting prepared for the many new opportunities that lie ahead.

But the world of software development on a Linux platform appears to be significantly different to the programmer who grew up or spent the last ten years coddled in the Windows Visual Studio toolkit. The huge variety of programming tools can be daunting to even an experienced programmer new to Linux.

This book targets the experienced Windows software developer, showing them how to install and tune Linux specifically for software development on the Linux operating system. Then it describes many popular Linux programming tools and environments, from the classic “big three” standards of Perl, Python and PHP, to new tools like like Zope and Kylix, and database backends like MySQL and PostgreSQL. The book puts each of these tools in context, showing a couple of typical programs written in each.

Once the reader has a big picture perspective, the book shows how to install and begin development with each of them, and where to turn to for in-depth, advanced guidance should the reader decide that a particular tool is worth further investigation..

As the server and desktop Linux markets grow in 2003, developers are going to want to get involved so they can take advantage of the new business available in those markets. This book will get them up to speed on putting their arms around the entire market and deciding where to start.
