I am enrolled at a local college for computer science. One of the languages we have to learn is PHP (this semester). I was wondering how much PHP I really need to know in order to create add-on's for XF. We will be using this book:
It covers the PEAR framework, unfortunately it doesn't cover the Zend framework. At the end of this 3 month class, will I have to read another book dedicated to Zend in order to create Zend / XF friendly plugins? I know this may seem vague. But if anyone here has college experience with PHP and then came to XF I could really use your input. Heck, I appreciate anyone's input.
I really want to succeed in the class and I would really like to be able to create my own add-on's like @Jaxel work or @Waindigo. I don't intend on making competitive product's but just creations for my own website projects.
Thanks everyone for your professional input and I do apologize for this being a vague topic, with vague questions. I understand people won't know what I will have learned, but all professional input is very helpful. Thank you and Happy coding!
