The Corner Workbench

The PHP community has been growing strongly for years and picking up speed as it moves.  As a low-entry, robust, and expandable interpretative language, it's generated a significant percentage of the internet as we know it.  Expanding our skill and tool set is important in our growth with PHP.  The Corner Workbench is a forum to learn about PHP, tools, utilities, packages, libraries, frameworks, and a lot more.  As we move forward we'll uncover principles of PHP, programming, development, and design.  Each new bit of information helps us to become stronger in our talents.

Our meeting space is being provided by Tampa Hackerspace, a member based cooperative makerspace; make sure to thank them.

The last few months we've had a good turnout for The Corner Workbench, covering parts of PHP Basic Concepts.  Last we ventured into compound variable types, after discussing scalar types the previously.  This meeting we're going to be focusing on Objects further, including some of the built-in SPL (Standard PHP Library).

There seems to be large subsection of members who are relatively new to PHP and programming in general.  In the effort to get us on a level playing ground, we are going to formalize the concepts to get started.  In this series we will cover a rudimentary understanding of what a PHP program is, how it works, and what basic pieces are used.


We have a discussion board for The Corner Workbench.

    Hey all, I have a possible topic for the next meeting if anyone else is interested. Creating a website/blog where you have DB on the backend to store users (usernames/password), what is the best/most secure way to store the passwords? Hashing options like MD5 obviously aren't secure, and I've heard a lot about mcrypt but since I have very little experience with security, I think covering the topic from the fundamentals would be very useful. Thoughts?

      That's a great idea, start a post about that in the message boards. We can discuss more there.

    It was a pleasure meeting you all and I'm looking forward to many more--and to doing some coding next time! Sam, I'm looking into the Linux and OpenEMR groups right now--the EMR one especially is VERY intriguing.
