At every NECC I indulge myself and take one workshop that’s a stretch, something interesting that has very little to do with my job. Feeding the inner geek, as it were. So, I spent today learning the basics of PHP. And what did I learn? For one thing, it’s going to take a whole lot longer than a few hours to master all this stuff.
PHP is the code that WordPress, the engine that runs this little rantfest, is built from. My goal in taking this workshop was to learn a little more about tweaking these pages and avoid screwing things up. I think I made a pretty good start on that but I’ll need to carve out a some time to keep working on it. The time part will probably be more difficult than the code.
