Headway is slow, but I'm working on the Flash-PHPObject-PHP-MySQL-Mambo integration for my games. Things are starting to work, but it's slow going.

  • Flash I know
  • PHPObject is pretty trivial.
  • PHP is uncharted territory for me, but is pretty easy to wrap your mind around.
  • MySQL is even further uncharted than PHP.
  • Mambo has been working much harder on the user-experience than the programmer experience. Doing things like getting the current user and logging the user in are fairly hairy.

Thankfully, I spent $5 on FlashChat, which integrates with PHP, SQL, and Mambo pretty seamlessly (along with a buncha other content managers like PHPNuke). They broke out the Mambo code into a small source file that does about everything I need.

But it's still slow going. MySQL is next. Whee.

I found the book PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura Tohomson to be very helpful. It provides many practical examples.
