Working with Bootstrap is totally awesome. For the first time when doing web page layout I didn’t have divs jumping around all over the place with a minor change in one place wreaking havoc to the entire layout.
I had no intentions to create any graphically exciting design. Actually I was quite happy with the clean simple layout I had before – until I opened it on a tablet or even worse on smartphone. So what I wanted was a simple, clean layout that set focus on the content and works fine for reading on all kinds of devices.
To fit in as a .NET/C# Dev I should never use the word PHP (except when cursing). But I want to learn, to know more so I decided to give PHP a try. There are numerous of big, wellknown applications written in PHP so it cannot be that bad, can it?
As a matter of fact, my blog is powered by WordPress which is written in PHP. From a user perspective I think that WordPress works fine. The basic functionality for editing and handling posts, comments and images works great. There are themes for customizations and plugins fore extensions. So I decided that it was time to dive in under the hood and learn more about WordPress and PHP.
In this post I will focus on PHP as a language and platform and skip over the WordPress details.
