All future development logs will be published in their own area known as DevLogs. This was started last week and has allowed greater explanations regarding the changes being made to XenWord as well as explain in greater details the challenges of learning PHP and coding.
Currently there are four DevLogs:
WordPress Development: Eating and Digesting Spaghetti
Most of my focus over the past few years has been to understand WordPress. It’s a moving target with new features constantly being added to the core. Because 27% of the websites on the web use WordPress then learning to create a WordPress plugin or theme is a great place to begin learning PHP and to practice writing code.
PHP Development: A Journey Through Stages of Ignorance
Learning to code in PHP is easy to start and more challenging to avoid making costly mistakes. This DevLog contains code examples, coding thoughts, and is a diary for anything I’ve learned.
XenWord Development: Bridging the Gap
A diary for coding XenWord. The reader should expect coding examples, discussions of pitfalls, and demonstrations of the joys and anguish of learning how to develop a bridge between XenForo and WordPress. Feel free to chime in and cheer on the development of XenWord.
XenForo Development: Scratching the Itch
A diary of learning how to code XenForo addons: moving from Cowboy coding to planning and implementing an addon. The reader should expect coding examples, discussions of pitfalls, and demonstrate the joys and anguish of learning how to develop an addon for XenForo.
The DevLogs are updated as I discover something new or am running into trouble. There might be incomplete ideas or examples of exasperation. Don’t worry. Trouble happens all of the time. This is why coding is about solving problems 🙂
