What would you guys think about a community written tutorial? We could first discuss everything that needs to be covered, which order it should be taught and then anyone who fills up to it can write a section or two. Really everyone could help. Lets say you don't feel comfortable writing a section on how functions work, come up with a couple of exercises for functions instead.
I know that there are all kinds of reasons why this wouldn't work but I think it would be a lot of fun. It would probably be best to decide on coding standards, naming conventions .. all that good stuff before hand. I think it would be hard for people to learn if every section of the tutorial had code that was written in a different style.
Imagine how cool it would be if you were learning PHP and came to a forum like this and saw that a lot of the members came together and built a nice tutorial that you could use to learn with. I dunno, maybe it's a dumb idea. I think it would be nifty though.
