I'm over my head again trying to run a program for a class and you were a great help last time. I'm trying to connect to mysql from Perl and have installed DBD:mysql on my Mac (OS X 10.5.8). I have no idea what I'm doing. Can you help? [more inside]
Help me repair or replace this nifty instrument availability web app
on my facility's website. [more inside]
Without access to PHP, MySQL, or any other fancy server-side stuff I still need to have dynamic pages. What are my options? [more inside]
What are the best database-driven Web application development frameworks out there right now? More specifically, please orient me to toolsets you know of that are similar to Ruby on Rails. [more inside]
This might be a little esoteric - but has anynone managed to get Perl's DBD::mysql module working on OSX Tiger? [more inside]
Is there a script (perl or php, no MySQL because I don't understand it and don't want to learn it) that password-protects a webpage so that it can be viewed only by someone who logs in with a username and a password, and also logs that user, so that you can have a record (very important) of who's viewed the page? If so, where can I get me one?
I have been looking at changing my web development focus from Windows/ASP/.NET to LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) because my gut is telling me that this is where things are going. Oh, Java should be in there as well.
What's the skinny on LAMP in the real world (Netcraft surveys
aside)? Is it difficult to change to LAMP/Java? Is the open source thing really sticking?
I'm interested in filling out my workday learning perl, php and mysql at my own speed. I have no programming background. Anybody have any good experiences with any online courses, or any other advice? Money is not an object, what is important is good structure (logical progression of concepts) and the ability to get personalized help when needed.
