It's no secret that PHP is one of the most popular languages for web development available. The language has enjoyed quite a bit of popularity over the years with more and more developers discovering and learning it all the time. On the Zend Developer Zone they've put together a guide just for those new to the PHP language and its community: Welcome to PHP.
Every day new developers discover the power of PHP and start looking for resources to help them learn more. It would be impossible to gather a complete list of all the resources, people, and projects that are useful to developers new to PHP. However, I decided it was time to put together a list designed to be starting point.
Ok, so all we need on the Internet is one more list. That having been said, I couldn’t think of a better way to organize this data other than into a list of lists. [...] Otherwise, here it is, presented to you in all its glory. If you like it, if you know someone new to PHP, please share it. I do hope that it is useful to anyone and everyone looking to get more involved or learn more. As the title says, Welcome to PHP!
The post is broken down into several sections (lists) including:
- Language Resources
There's plenty of links and descriptions of each resource linked to in these and a few other sections. If you're new to the world of PHP or even just looking to expand your horizons to more PHP-related things outside of your "developer bubble" check out the full post.
