Ola all. I used to write a bit of VB6 and ASP code for the web, got sidetracked for a long bit, and now have a chance to get back into web programming. I'm trying to use as much OpenSource as possible and I'm picking up php as I go along...
I'm pretty useless trying to write any code cold. I depend a lot on a good manual with code that I can swipe. The bundled php documentation is great.
Currently I'm using a couple of books: Wrox 'Professional PHP4' (I know I know) along with the more recent Wrox "PHP and MySQL" cookbook which is at least a v5x release. Both of those are pretty thorough and have a lot of usable examples.
I'm also using the O'Reilly 'Web Design In A Nutshell" book for css and presentation.
I was just wondering if all y'all have any favorites to recommend as far as coding php goes. What's your go-to guy?
