Shed some light on web apps for please!

  • # November 8, 2012 at 12:21 am

    Can anyone suggest the best and easiest way to start with web apps, in my case?

    My plan is making a SIMPLE web app that will ONLY READ from a DB of around 500 – 1000 db entries and it will be predominantly used by MOBILE DEVICES. Might be used by 10 000+ people. Also I have no budget so free and open source solutions would be wonderful!

    Existing skills are, comfortable with HTML & CSS, jQuery and can make my own WordPress themes so a little bit of PHP as well :)

    Much appreciated!

    …learn SQL.

    You’ll almost certainly need more PHP than you use for WP. Use mysqli or PDO – do not use the mysql_* functions. They are long outdated and ready for deprecation.

    You also need to learn the basics of security – SQL injection, and so forth.

    If you need any help, ask!
