I have been programming with Java and c++ for 4 years and I have almost 4 years of SQL experience. I understand advanced topics such as multi threading, design patterns, queries, api creation, etc. However I have only done very little php work. The last website I made with php was www.entrebtc.com. I'm thinking of making a retro game website that does very in depth information on games and would like to create a database application to run it. I see xenforo as a way to cut out 95% of the programming.
Are (well coded) xenforo addons capable of running large scale database mods?
Any advice for someone new to xen programming? (I understand mvc design pattern)
Any recommended tutorials or addons that I can dissect for learning purposes?
Thanks a ton!
