technical about what LDAP is, what LDAP isn't, and what makes it tick.
This is a gentler introduction targeting those who know how to deal

implementation. Differences between a traditional DBMS and LDAP are
covered, combined with very bite-sized code snippets to get you started
on the path to LDAP enlightenment.

show you how to optimize your PHP code... by not writing so much of it!

greatest of ease!
