I have been meaning to do a refresher og. Php7, now I read I can skip to 8.
Any recommendations?i know very little and the -> confuses me.
C0D46231811dA man of similar culture.
Somehow, I kinda miss adding the version (3) to the file extension though.
How it has grown into a glorious beast, and paid my way through life while it was at it 🥰
AleCx042461911d@mundo03 I tend to recommend 3 things:
The free online book hacking with php
the community resource php the right way aaaaaand the no framework tutorial by Patrick Louys (bunch of github md files)
You don't necessarily have to skip php 7, 8 builds on top of it and even though it adds some breaking changes they would be minimal compared to say ver 5 to 7.
I am not a fan of using frameworks in php, but I do use composer, learning it is a must as well as getting acquainted with psr standards, else we might fall on the poor development conventions from the php4/5 days.
AleCx042461911d@C0D4 same bro, php is my bread and butter and I find it faaar easier to get jobs etc for it than any other stack. Even as a more experienced dev with a larger set of qualifications, I still jump back to php all the time as my main tool for backend services.
I would only consider Rails, and that is because some of the less experienced php devs really do be out there writing horror stories....like the ones I go to at work every day 🥴
Parzi942411di'd jump to php8 if mediawiki and my extensions supported it. Sadly, they don't!
cervantes0171511dI started on version 1.8 and then upgraded to 2.4 lol.
