This post is a collection of useful links I found to become a better php professional. There is no other aim to have it available for me to check it when I have spare time so it’s not proper written and documented. I write this, by this I mean this blog, as an open public notebook where people can learn, correct and give me and others some tips.
If you are learning PHP or improving your knowledge, you can found this post quiet interesting.
