Very nice PHP community you seem to have here. Decided to join after reading some quality articles.
About me? I have quite some PHP coding experience, doing some freelance work here and there as well, but I'm still hungry for much more. Hopefully we can learn a lot from each other. Regular expressions and code optimization are topics that specifically interest me.
Maybe you have heard of the Kohana Framework already? I happen to be in their dev team.
Also, I love to design. You know, Photoshop, HTML/CSS and that stuff. Maybe I'll post some of my better projects in the Show Off forum.
I've been lurking around the CodeIgniter forums for a long time (I rarely post there) and have been following the Kohana project closely. I really liked the introduction of "code optimisations" to help make CI that bit more efficient.
First time I played Zelda was the Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64! I got well past the mid-way point where everything turns evil, but I think the game gradually started to depress me after that as everybody who was previously welcoming me and shaking my hand, wanted to stab me between the ribs !
I've never actually heard of the Kohana project, but as you and Salathe seem to know much about it, I can see us hearing a lot about it in due time.
The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
Thanks all, for the warm welcome, on this rainy and windy December day.
@ Salathe: Nice to hear people remember me as "the guy from the CI optimization topics". I can tell you, they're all implemented in Kohana. And by the way, you seem to have a very solid of regular expressions as well!
@ thegrayman and Wildhoney: I love a good game from time to time and the Zelda series definitely rock. Other favorites include Paper Mario and MarioKart. Mainly Nintendo stuff.
