Bryan's Blog:
5 (More) Ways to be a Better PHP Developer
February 14, 2008 @ 12:53:00

Following up on this article from Akash Mehta, Bryan has posted five more suggestions he has to help make you a better PHP developer.

I thought all of Akash's suggestions were good but a little broad and seemed to involve a lot of reading. And while any budding developer will jump at the chance to expand their burgeoning technical library, I thought there were a couple of items we could add to his list.

The recommendations that made his list are

  • Start a project that other people (developers and end users) will use.
  • Learn another language.
  • Teach someone PHP.
  • Ask for suggestions not solutions.
  • Use what you read.

I'm particularly a fan of the third one (teaching) - not only does it spread PHP out even more through the masses, but it can really test you on your knowledge (some of those "how do I.." questions can get a bit complex, even from beginners).
