Hey, guys! Green horn here. I'm working with Jeff Sellers through this series and I hope to learn a lot from this. :) I don't really know exactly what to say here. Haha

I'm finished with chapter 1 and here are my thoughts:

* I've worked with PHP before back in college and I've seemed to retained some helpful information about it. The introduction was a good refresher for me.
* The syntax and conventions of PHP are easy to understand and are very similar to other programming languages I've worked with before.
* I'm excited to learn more about PHP and discover what secrets it holds. :)

Hi Gene,

Thanks for organizing the Percolate again!

I am wondering how people like the Kindle version of the ebook. I noticed that there is no index for quick reference when I checked the sample. One basically has to "flip" through the pages to find certain topics.

Hi there!

To get the Table of contents on the left side like normal, probably buy the PDF version from PeachPit. That is Gene's link to PeachPit. Hopefully Boston PHP gets a small amount of the proceeds to help them out. :) The Amazon Kindle has the Table of Contents but embedded within the body at the very beginning, rather than a regular TOC on the left side.

I have the Kindle which is fine for me, but I would like to have a better way of the TOC being on the side for quick reference. I'm guessing not enough room to do that.

This is an excellent book by Larry. Hope you enjoy.

Hi Gene,
The PHP conference was great, it was a real treat to attend Larry's sessions. I am very motivated to begin participating in and learning from this course. Thank you for all of your time and leadership.

Hi, everyone. I'm a Drupal developer looking to hone my PHP skills and this book seems like it's a great way to do so.

Hi Gene,

I've read the Introduction, and getting things set up for Chapter 1. I've gone half way through, but want to set up a page to link the assignments.
