About the same time last year, I needed to create a simple Ticket Reservation System for a small concert in our local church. There were two locations were tickets can be ordered and they wanted the available seats to updated real-time. I needed a quick and affordable solution so I decided to use PHP and MySQL to implement this functionality.

Coming from ZERO PHP knowledge, I used this book below as reference and it helped me develop a simple solution in just a couple of days.
