I just joined this site, after lurking from a distance.
I came across DaniWeb originally because I was searching for information on PHP and CodeIgniter.
I had been waiting for the 'next big language' that I could handle learning, so that I wouldn't end up learning lots of arcane ones (I managed to briefly learn 65C02, Apple //c's assembly language).
I never understood databases could be more than an address book.
I was going to study Computer Science when I got to college, but it was too much. I dropped out, and came back to major in the arts (because I knew I didn't want to spend my -whole- life in front of a computer in a dungeon).
I get overwhelmed with walls of code. But I know I'm going to have to get over it. Looking at C-like code (i.e. PHP) kind of shorts my brain out.
So, how did others here get through their internal walls of challenges?
Was there a good resource you learned how to make easier sense of all the functions and such in PHP (or similar languages)?
