@classam hey dude, we spoke yesterday about things I should know for developing... Any resources that are helpful for learning?
Hey, Stuart. Lots of resources. So many resources that I could talk for days about them. So I'm going to:
I got started with PHP - and a book called "Web Applications with PHP and MySQL" which is now starting to seriously show its age ( http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596005436.do ) - because deploying a PHP application is very, very easy. I'm not sure if I necessarily recommend it, because PHP is a total shit-show of a language, but it's an introduction to PHP, an introduction to MySQL, an introduction to getting those things to work together... a good way to get to the point where you can call yourself a web developer very quickly.
