Programming Resources

Sometimes you need a place to chat about stuff, and that's okay, because we're a community. This board is meant just for that, to talk about everything and even your kitchen sink (if you feel so inclined).

Programming Resources

So every programmer will tell you that they don't ever code without a couple things with them. When I sit down to code, I have my IDE (Coda) and a PHP Function Index program open so that I can reference things while I'm coding. For some people, it's a program, for others, it's a website. This thread is about a combination of both those. This is a thread that will be expanded on in the coming weeks and months, but here are a couple to get people started...

Tutorial Code is a great site with tutorials for PHP, CSS, and Flash.

Komodo Edit is a really nice IDE that can be run on Mac, Windows, or Linux, and the best part is, it's free!

Here's a couple from me that I have found decent reference ;)

If you're just starting out on your programming days, this is a good site to start you off - it takes you through all the basics as well as giving you a head start on some 'real-world' working examples:
http://www.php-mysql-tutorial.com/index.php

SMS is basically a content management system(CMS) that is devoted to simming. If you're interested is starting your own CMS (either for a work intranet or your own website), then this is one that I have found that takes you through step by step:

Best PHP info site around:

http://php.net

No, seriously, it's the only site I've really every used for PHP. Got practically everything you need to write in PHP.

Two very good CSS pages that should help anyone serious about working with stylesheets.

For anyone using Firefox (which should be everyone) who is interested in web development, the add-on Firebug is a must have. It's great to debug errors in JavaScript and see HTML structure and even test load times.

I must admit, I was just introduced to this one the other day. It looks pretty neat so far although I haven't had a chance to install it on my machines yet. I'd be interested to know about any other web authoring or useful addons for Firefox that people are using too.

I think there's one for the Windows version that lets you test the site with the IE rendering engine without leaving Firefox, but since I'm on a Mac, I didn't really pay too much attention to it.

Yep, it's called IETab and it works fairly well. Still a few bugs in its features and all, but an altogether wonderful tool (though IE will need to be installed still to use it).

There are a lot of developer resources for Firefox. A quick Google search should give you an idea.

For any Mac users out there, I would highly recommend Coda as an IDE. You have to pay for it, but it's well worth the price. I've moved SMS over to being coded in Coda and I absolutely love it. Slick, very Mac-like interface that makes life so much easier!

For Windows users, you might want to check out WeBuilder as a good IDE. I've heard pretty good things about it. It's commercial, but the price tag isn't that bad.
