PHP portfolio piece – Analytics data.

I recently published a blog post about a portfolio project I am developing using the LAMP stack, Bootstrap 4, jQuery, and the MVC (Model-View-Controller) design pattern in core PHP. In this post, I will introduce an additional feature I integrated into the existing project.

PHP date() function for common date formats

Dates and time are everywhere. We live and operate based on date and time values. Work, sleep, or play – dates and time are always a deciding factor. Where on earth would we be without a calendar? I can tell you where I would be… Lost. Speaking of dates, there is not one universal format that I am aware of. People write them in all kinds of ways. If programming in PHP (such as yours truly) you may wish to format a date value in a particular manner. Using the PHP date() function, it’s super easy. In this blog post, I share 3 common date formats you can pull off with the PHP date() function…

PHP CRUD Application – Portfolio Piece

I am super pleased to share that I have completed and uploaded my first (that I can share at least) personal portfolio piece written in PHP to a subdomain on my personal hosting server located at walk.openlamp.tech. Over the better part of the last year, I have developed a custom reporting dashboard written in PHP for my (current) employer, but do not share any of that work as it is proprietary and not owned by me.

Digital Owl’s Prose End of Year blog post compilation

Like always, I do an end-of-year round-up here on my blog. This year is no different in that aspect, although it has been one crazy year otherwise.

Got to love that evergreen content right!?! Enjoy!

PHP technical writing compilation

Having spent the majority of this year programming a custom reporting dashboard for my employer written in PHP and MySQL, it is an understatement to say that I have learned a lot. Nothing beats real-world experience and I really have come into my own with PHP, learning more and more daily as I continue progressing forward on my goal of becoming a Back-End Web Developer. I have written several PHP-related posts this year and wanted to provide them all in one easy-to-access list. Enjoy! [Keep reading for more MySQL database and Python/PHP-centric content >>>]
