Started reading a book.

I found an interesting book that I started to read. It’s Principles Of Beautiful Web Design. I’m not a very visually creative person but I guess it’s time to learn some of the principals of making pages that don’t hurt the viewer. I hope that I can pick up some of the finer points.

I still have lots to learn.

Today I played with the oAuth Twitter authentication. I can get it to put up the Twitter page but not sure how to use the return authentication. So I’ve put that on the back burner for now. I’ll get back to it later in the week.

I wish I had found this a week ago.

After spending a week working with PHP I’ve found a couple sites that have really helped me. The Theme Forest and Net Tuts+ are a couple sites that have screencasts. So I spent the last couple days watching the “Diving into PHP” and the “Jquery For Absolute Beginners” series. They really explained alot and are recommended.

Trying to grok the flow

I’ve been working on learning PHP and Javascript. Being a C++ and Visual Basic programmer for the last 20 or so years I’m having a problem to GROK the web programing. It doesn’t seem to have the linear flow I’m used to. I guess I need to find a good reference for the flow of html and PHP.

Playing with Javascript

I’m trying to decide if I want to use javascript or to keep it simply PHP.  I’ve been looking at the jQuery library and it seems to be robust.  I’ve got some reading to do to get my head around the way they all work together.  As I get into the development my ‘todo’ list just k eeps growing but I hope to have a featureless prototype ready by the end of the month.
