PHP Request Trello

HI there!

PHP Trello Board

TAGS: Hampton Paulk

I was thinking about PHP more likely to have similar topics as Ruby on Rails has.

What i mean by that if we take simple sites and enchance them . Similar to the Mike The Shop but a little different.

A site where we will learn about :

  • Log in Log out/Registration
  • Categorioes .e.g Like treehouse has with its forum and library
  • Dashboard
  • Forum
  • Posting
  • Friend Adding and their firiends
  • Search ( yes, it was before)
  • All the security in it
  • Numeric Validation and Email

What do you think?

but only if python gets also such content :P I don't come along with php... we are like fire and water (don't know if you say this in English since I know it only from Germany...) xD

Lol, i dont like python , im vice versa xd i mean, i just dont want python now :D

Well, i think there is this saying:

" iTunes is my favorite app on windows. its like Putting a ice glass to hell. It just doesnt work :D" From Steve Jobs, however he said it xd

ruby has these topics, because frankly, php is never the answer or the right tool. I did php for over 10 years, and made the switch to ruby and never looked back.

None of the php courses on Treehouse so far have gotten into GRAPHICS.

There is a great library called graphicsmagick (aka "GMagick")


It's a fork of ImageMagick designed with better stability and performance.

There is also Imagine:


php coding doesn't have to be about using text to produce other text/html/css.

Thank you for all of these suggestions Konrad Pilch . I will add them to the board soon! cc: Luca Fuhl Justin Black

Treehouse is a place for learning world wide. I value all of our students and want to further their education, no matter the language. I am a developer first and a teacher second and like most developers, work in several languages.

Every language has its place in this world

Try to think about how to further the trade of software development world wide, and supporting your fellow students here at treehouse.

Well I never wanted to say that PHP is a bad language but it is and won't be the language of my choice. But I think thats more a matter of my taste than PHP being a bad language. PHP also does have it good sites. Perhaps I just don't know them that good :P

I was reading a book about PHP mainly ,

and i camed out with this :

Designing a Social Networking Site Before writing any code, I sat down and came up with several things that I decided were essential to such a site. These included the following: • A sign-up process • A login form www.it-ebooks.info 653 • A logout facility • Session control • User profiles with uploaded thumbnails • A member directory • Adding members as friends • Public and private messaging between members • How to style the project

And also , i watched your videos , and i really really love them ! But, theres a situation, its hard to learn OOP without using it in a project , at least a very small would be good. I have to re-watch it mutliple times and read other articles about how OOP in PHP works and im getting there but i think the best way is to practice it in real life project.

But otherwise your videos are very clean and easy to track you , i mean really easy. Randy's vidoes were a bit harder to track and uh .

*EDIT: Oh and without using any framework so we can like actually learn the hard way : p and get the most out of it *
