I want to get experienced with php…

    … but I hate making things that are just for the sake of learning. I would much prefer to make something that somebody could use. So do you have any ideas. Maybe a cool web app or site you don’t know how to make, can’t be bothered to or just don’t have the time that will be a good way for me to learn, any size will do? Thanks

    unfortunately it might be better to at least get some groundwork in first :)

    I found the best tutorial to lay some good foundations was by Jeff from Theme Forest. … eo-series/

    and the Regular expressions to go with the series that runs along side that one :)

    Other wise you will get really frustrated trying to start, and these tuts at least give you piratical examples to do :)

    If you want something to develop in PHP, I would make a simple CMS. This will also get you working with MySQL Databases, and you can always expand and upgrade to image uploading, etc., etc.

    Surely if you want something piratical you should make a bit torrent tracker site…. :roll:

    thanks for the suggestions!

    I decided to go with a bittorrent cms where you can download torrents printable eyepatches!

    Thanks Robski…, I’d seen these great tuts before but I was lame and didn’t bookmark it so I lost it. Thanks for the link.
