PHP 5 and beyond
« on: May 15, 2012, 05:00:18 PM »
I wonder if anyone here is into PHP? I was pretty good with it for a time, then got slack and I got left behind around version 4.2.3. :-\

Fortunately I'm still good with MySQL :D , which is a bonus although I'm finding life hard with globals off!

Can anyone recommend any good sites for brushing up and coding to take globals off into consideration, cos I'm pulling my hair out here lol ;D

select 'book' from 'bookstore' where 'title' like 'php' order by 'thickness' desc ;
That's my advice. ;D

Actually that sounded a bit mean lol.  :o
Wasn't supposed to.
But the thing is I always find it's always easier to read a book, especially on something like scope and passing variables into functions where you need solid examples. The web I use for reminders/reference afterwards. 
php.net goes a long way for reference.
I couldn't know what I did know to write my website without a book on php and a book on CSS. But mysql is pretty simple.

Can you teach me Trev? I know a 'little' bit but need to learn more - might be able to get a job then! :)

Ugh programming jobs. No disrespect to anyone who is a programmer, but no matter WHAT I learned to try to get a job, it always came down to this:

"So, I see you have a lot of languages under your belt"
"yes.."
"How about .net?"
"Oh, Well I've done 5 years of VB6, some VC++, but haven't got any .net"
"Ah. We need .net"
<ends>

In the end, I just moved into software testing.

@Andy, I'm sure I can help out. But like rewind says, don't rely on it. It's ok for site development/apps. But like anything if you don't use it, you lose it as I'm finding out ;)
