PHP zone

A Webel zone with some PHP resources and tips:

If you have never used PHP before and you already know some Java™, C, C++ or Perl (and some HTML and CSS) then give PHP a go, it's easy. It also has some powerful object-oriented and reflection capabilities, as well as the ability to manipulate function variables. If you just want to interact directly with an SQL database (and especially with MySQL through PHP MySQL) and wish to develop a simple interactive web application then PHP is a good choice.

There is also now an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework for PHP called Propel, which is used by the Symfony web application framework, as well as a framework of emulations and implementations of popular idioms from other languages called Stubbles (which you SHOULD visit before reinventing the PHP wheel). And check out also the Cake PHP rapid development web application framework.
