Hi, my name is Pete or Cags as I tend to be called online and I'm from Leicestershire (UK). I'm 26, I started to teach myself PHP about 4 months ago. I'll probably (try to) be giving more help as opposed to asking questions around here. Just thought I'd say hello.

Hello to everyone,

I am new to these forums & this wonderful community so ill give a little background about myself.

My name is Matt, I am 21 years of age and live in the UK (England).

I am a founder of a gaming community/clan where alot of my time online is spent coding in PHP/HTML to improve my community website and clan. www.sog-team.co.uk

I stumbled across PHP code when I first started my first website in 2006 when I chose vbulletin forum software to base it. Ever since, I have grown learning more and more about PHP everyday enabling me to become quite an enthusiast for coding and vbulletin modifications.

I have released several vbulletin modifications at the official mods site vbulletin.org, and have coded several stand alone scripts in use at my site including an automated admin "Bot" that administrates the gameservers we own in SWAT 4.

I have joined this forum as despite the above, I am still to many a novice to the world of PHP, and I endeavour to become one day the person who can pass down knowledge to others rather than requesting it myself. I have learnt alot over the years but think it is now time to further my efforts by joining a community like this.

I will look forward to liasing with alot of you and testing your brains aloing with (hopefully) testing my own :)

Thanks again,

Matt

Just found this bit. It pays to look :)

My name is Martin and I'm an addict. I'm 30 and live/work in West Yorkshire.

I have only recently signed up but have visited this site/forum many times looking for info whilst going through the learning process :)

I have about 5 years(ish) experience with php. Took an interest after spending many years building servers to run it so thought I may as well see what all the fuss is about. Don't really consider myself an expert but I know enough to get by and enjoy learning new things. I mainly joined to try help others as I find you can learn an awful lot trying to help others solve their issues and also to bounce ideas off other people who know what they are doing. I could babble on all day about random rubbish but I'll leave it there!
Close, but no cigar

looked at the zend framework among many others and decided against them. I use a basic framework I wrote myself as I don't see the point on having a vast library full of classes I'm never going to use. Plus I know it inside out so its much easier for me to maintain. I'm not saying its better because I betting it really isn't. But it suits my needs and works as I intended it to so I suppose thats sufficent. :) I've never really been a fan of javascript but I do see the advantages of AJAX so its on my list of things to improve my knowledge of. I have to say though, I like some of the best practices zend use so I have adopted them in my own work.

no no no, the framework is a base for you to create modules onto and when you leave or hand over teh aplication to others they can continue the module development.

when it comes to the big boys no screws are left loose, a framework like the zend mvc is the pinnacle of php

it takes time and practice, start from basic applications , some people are slower at learning than others, it takes me about 1 or 2 days  to learn anyones technology.

there is a differentce between a good developer and a solid SOLID engineer they need to work together and learn from each other then when they are equal they can work together but you need to pick STANDARDS

your software should incorperate software principals that are established

system setup
development environment
development GUI's

modular framework setup
library setup

coding and file structure and modification standards setup
versioning and backup

clustering and mirroring

quality assurance

testing (now this is the tricky part as in how much are you willing to do)
hook based environemntal tests
and full black and white tests

testing should be built in to a real big boy aplication none of those kiddy scripts

libraries need to be built in so you can carry your application and create other applications with it, the version of your base application will increase,

but i see what your sayign about teh zend its hard to have others work, but rember its all others work, libraries dont realy slow teh machine the more teh merrier

Hi, I'm Jester. I'm a member of the Cloud 9 Crew Urban Terror clan, and a PHP developer in the Cloud 9 Code Crew.

I've been doing PHP for about three or four months now. Still learning, and enjoying every bit of it.

I've got a couple of major Urban Terror-related projects I've worked on so far (that I unfortunately can't disclose).

I'm 19. I live in Georgia, USA. I'm Atheist, and I pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe computers. I'm working on my second year toward an Associate's in Computer Information Systems and one in Networking. I'll be going for my Comptia certifications soon. Currently I work in a small local computer shop doing OS reinstalls and building refurb boxes.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

YOU should try proper capitalization, punctuation, and oh yeah.. English. You know what, forget about that. Just don't post anything any more and we'll call it even. I think everyone knows all they need they need to about you by now (I doubt anyone really needed all 30 posts for it though).

i don't mind criticism


People say that, but they don't really mean it. However, if you are absolutely serious this I will happily oblige. But be warned: there's about a 80% chance you will be pissed off. I really don't care much if you are, just don't say I didn't warn you. Possibly you're already pissed off, in which case you might want to pass.
