Fucking iPod, I wrote a post on why you should use dreamweaver when working with databases but I timed out, so fuck it. Just use dreamweaver. If you don't know why, learn how to use it and you'll figure it out pretty quick.
Personally I work with compiled languages, and php(or other uncompiled languages) when I need to. Before you get all picky, I'm aware php can be compiled, but it usually isn't unless it has to be. Ignoring that my statement stands.
You think this kills a coder? Wait until you start working with a real programming language. I'm sure you'd enjoy it though, it's fun when you get the hang of it(usually, sometimes it's a pain)
Wrote this on the iPod, so ignore poor grammar\typos.
Anyway, nice to see a dedicated programmer on Mpgh.
My programming school lessons will start next week, i'm sure we would only learn compiled languages as C# and few others.
I am really interested on Java but i personally never tried it.
BTW. Gonna do a research about java, if you know any book for begginer let me know.
