  • Where did you learn PHP?


    I am wondering where did the vBulletin creators learn PHP? I was looking through the vBulletin code and thought, "damn, this is the coolest and neatest coding I have ever seen in my whole life". How do you do it? And where did you learn?

    Lol.. I really like the comment you made about the neatest and coolest coding part. I don't know from where/how vbulletin learned PHP coding. But I learned PHP & MySQL from quite a few sources.

    • PHP & MySQL Visual QuickPro Guide by larry ullman
    • PHP & MySQL for dummies (good reference, not good learning book)
    Video CDS
    • VTC - PHP & MySQL Training by Joshua Mustofa
    I do have some other small books like PHP Pocket reference but they aren't really worth listing them. And when you develop a script use Zend Studio Client, no notepad and even Dreamweaver. Zend Studio Client is extremely good and will help you to make neat codes. I still see many people starting php tags with <?, instead of standard <?php tag. And then include file.php;, instead of standard include("file.php");. The magic of neat coding is write codes that are standard . And don't just write your whole code in single line, branch them nicely, use comments and spaces effectively and so on.
