I have two weeks to learn PHP. Help me make a plan!
Because my library job is ridiculously awesome, I'm being given two weeks to devote myself to learning php. This will be time otherwise unfettered by work concerns; I'm even staying out of the library to help make that happen.
Previous AskMe questions
were helpful in a general sense, but I also want a reality-check on my expectations. I have no programming background. I have a handful of self-taught html and css skills. I am fearless in the face of technology, and I have a well-honed librarian's ability to find answers when I have questions. What do you think I could expect to accomplish in 2 weeks (80-ish hours) of work? What resources would you recommend, particularly in online tutorials? Are any of them worth paying for? (I've seen prices from $30 to nearly $1000; I probably have some library money at my disposal, but nothing approaching the upper end of that range.) Anything I'm completely missing in my naive enthusiasm for this project?
