How I Learned PHP (at WCSF)

PHP is like oxygen at a Wordcamp; it’s all over the place, in snippets, on slides, and within conversations. (Of course, PHP is also all over the place powering the web, too.)

During his State of the Word speech, Matt Mullenweg asked, “How many of you learned PHP from doing WordPress?” I’d say the majority of people, including him, raised hands. Of course, this raises questions of what things in PHP one learns from WordPress, and how does one keep learning more…

This helped inspire me to set up a new test site, howilearnedphp.com . I’ll use it to collect stories, pictures, and things about the continued learning of PHP. (It’s also for learning/testing the betas of BuddyPress/bbPress)

Presentations which helped me learn a little more about PHP and code development:

Some interesting links via the event twitterstream:

Plus, other code-heavy talks I didn’t see in person but am watching when the videos come out:
