Blog :: PHP Newbie Night at Modesto Scripting Languages Meetup

Most of my tech stuff goes on at simeonfranklin.com nowadays - but I'd like to note that the Modesto Scripting Languages Meetup now has 17 members and we had our third meetup!

Our topic this time was PHP Newbie Night I took a trip down memory lane and presented my Top Ten Rookie Mistakes in PHP. Digging for material (mostly on this blog) also lead me to old rants that hopefully entertained somebody.

Click through to the presentation for details and we might have video up at some point thanks to Jerad Hill - but for the impatient my Top 10 Rookie PHP Mistakes are:

  1. Not learning PHP
  2. Not paying attention to security
  3. Mixing everything up
  4. Caring about micro-benchmarking
  5. Using a template engine
  6. Not using a template engine
  7. "reusing" code
  8. Not reusing code
  9. Using a framework
  10. Not using a framework
  11. And as a bonus: not learning all the other technologies needed for web apps
