PHP seems to get a lot of bad press about being old technology, difficult to learn, unreliable and outright complicated. They say all that about VB6 too. Well, I've managed to get by with VB6 for a "few" years, so PHP can't be that difficult. Can it?

Turns out that a little knowledge can get you quite along way. This site is backed up with a few snippets of PHP to help automate the building of these web pages. It's not spectacular code, but it greatly simplifies the maintenance of creating this stuff.

So, this section is about my journey in to the edges of the PHP world. Don't expect a lot of stunning revelations or brilliant code. These are the small stumbling steps of a dedicated desktop developer working on a few simple online applications and web sites.
