Welcome to Fiftyfoureleven.com, digital/web design home of your author, Mike Papageorge. I built this site back in ~2002 in order to have a location to store bookmarks (Web Development Resources) before bookmarking sites were internet-famous and to write a web development blog back when blogs were just starting to gain traction.
Since then I've built up this site sporadically thru the years. Currently, in 2009, I plan on writing some new content here, posting a lot of new resources as I find new and useful stuff and finishing off this new simple design.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
A small aside, I am now writing at my frozen shoulder blog.
A little shout out to my wife's website, where she does design and development work at: Diseño web Alicante.
I started freelancing by diving in head first and getting on with it. Many years and a lot of experience later I was still able to take away some gems from this book, and there are plenty I wish I had thought of beforehand. If you are new to freelancing and have a lot of questions (or maybe don't know what questions to ask!) do yourself a favor and at least check out the sample chapters.
Like the other books listed here, this provides a great reference for the PHP developer looking to have the right answers from the right people at their fingertips. I tend to pull this off the shelf when I need to delve into new territory and usually find a workable solution to keep development moving. This only needs to happen once and you recoup the price of the book in time saved from having to develop the solution or find the right pattern for getting the job done..
