I'd love to get some education-related PHP topics going, or at least find resources for school-specific PHP resources.
I am a tech coordinator who manages a number of PHP/MySQL applications for my district: Moodle, Joomla, phpscheduleit to name a few.
I'm struggling to learn PHP for myself so I can build custom applications for our school. (Professional development tracker, vehicle request system, etc.)
My predecessor created a lot of web front-ends for FileMaker Pro databases using Lasso. They still work fine, but I'd like to spiff them up, add enhancements, and make them MySQL databases.
So, does anyone here know of any great school-specific resources for PHP scripts, or tutorials? I do frequent hotscripts.com, and have found some nice stuff there.
I'd really like to learn it for myself, and haven't found the one perfect book yet! :-)
Anyway, I'd sure enjoy some banter and discussion with educators who are using these tools.
