This is my collection of links to useful information for developers. Unfortunately, most of this information was collected between 2009 to 2012, and technology has moved on and many of the links are now broken. Some links will even take you to an ancient version of phpfunk.com. Ah, those were the days!
CSS filters by browser
How about a nice chart that shows you which css rule is understood by each browser so you can work around all those non-standard compliant browser “quirks”.
CSS variable column layout
PHP Sessions and URLs
Purpose: remove trans SID from URL for XHTML compliance.
Example php code shown here, from mtdev.com article on removing trans sid from URL. Verify that you can actually set these values on the server where you host the php code; to date we found one instance where this was not possible.
Of course you call them before calling session_start().
Source Code Control
I still use cvs. Nope, I love git now.
There are some best practices for source code version control.
Joelonsoftware.com has lots of good info and this post about unicode tells you in a straight-forward manner how it works.
CSV File Format
The csv file format (comma-separate values) is not a “standard” but it should be. Its the time honored way of organizing data. Fortunately someone has put together a nice reference about the non-standard csv “standard”.
When you cannot remember how to do something in perl, simply search for the how-to. For example, if you cannot remember how hashes work you would search for the perl hash how-to.
