I’ve been studying PHP this week using a video tutorial. I was rather pleased with myself for getting a virtual dev/test machine set up using VMware, with WordPress running on it even. The only real difficulty was in getting PHP-MyAdmin set up to connect to MySQL so I could actually create a database for WP but after that it was smooth sailing. It’s pretty neat doing all the development on my own machine (the new 4-core Dell), with Apache serving up the web pages.
I also visited the Guilford Co. Linus Users Group last night, in hopes of meeting some like-minded individuals. I think I have a few leads, though of course they were somewhat disgusted that I’m using WAMP instead of LAMP! LOL
