I've been a programmer for about 3 years and not so long ago, I decided to switch my interest to web development. For that reason, I've been learning PHP & MySQL for some times. However, I feel a need of direction about what is relevant to the current web development trend at the moment in order to be able to enter the competition on the job market.
Therefore, I want to ask for inputs from fellow professionals who have worked with PHP & MySQL in their workplace. What should I learn or focus more in regard to PHP & MySQL.
So far I've been learning to:
- Manage HTML page structure with object oriented principle using PHP
- Create database connection
- Create SQL query
- Create output page from the database query
Looking forward to your input. Thanks in advance everyone. :)
