From Cal Evans over on the Zend Developer Zone today comes two links for beginner guides the "wished he'd had when he was starting PHP".
Everybody starts somewhere. I started (officially) with my Commodore 64. I wrote my first commercial program on it and it started a life-long obsession with programming. Being a self-taught programmer, there are gaps in my education. The 2 biggest areas I have trouble with are Recursion and Graphics. Thank (generic deity reference) for the Web.
While surfing around today, I stumbled upon 2 tutorials covering those two areas. They are well written, informative and free so I thought I'd share them with you on the off-chance you struggle with them as well.
