On May 6th 2012 I posted the reasons I was learning PHP. The journey has been a worthy adventure. I ended by stating, "After 15 years of avoiding PHP code - I look forward to the day I can contribute to WP and XF with original code." After working with eclipse for a few days, it became obvious that the value in finding functions was worth the effort to install Zend Server as well as eclipse (a "loss" of a few days!). Eclipse really helped me see the importance of PHP coding style. Now ... here I sit. It's been a little more than a year later and today is another milestone. Today I bought Zend Studio. Moving to an IDE seemed the next logical step to take while learning PHP. I still stink at MVC as well as procedural code. In fact, lines of code can still make my head ache with intensity. My hope is that Zend Studio will help me Regardless, is it time to laugh or cry as I press onward into PHP development?
