php beginner's guideI have been working with PHP since early 2001, first as the nerdy hobby of a spotty teen and then later developing my skills into a full time career as a senior web developer.

I’ve used it to create everything from scripts and plugins, to personal utilities that parse my phone company’s .CSV export files so that I can keep track of most dialed numbers & costs etc (yes, I am that geeky). Follow my beginner’s guide to PHP and you too can be writing PHP scripts in no time :)
