The "not-to-be-questioned" consensus among the language-of-the-month know-it-all developers is that PHP is dead, nobody is hiring for PHP and you're an idiot if you waste time learning it.

They're wrong.

Here's all the different jobs you can find in about 10 minutes on the internet.

Conventional wisdom says you need a degree to get a good job and have a good life... especially in an IT career. But, it's just plain wrong. Here's the statistics to prove it.

Here's a PHP calendar script and tutorial. I took some approaches I'd seen from other developers and turned them into a class... and cleaned them up a bit.

Mike P's story is quite unique.

Just three years ago, he was a broke college student, working at a factory, frustrated about the direction his life had taken.

And desperate for a way out.

Now, just three years later... he's Senior Consultant and one of Fortune's 500 fastest growing companies, his clients are a who's who of the top companies in the world and he earns a cool 6-figures doing it.

Someone who's made that kind of transformation has to have a few tricks up his sleeve.

Fortunately, he was recently in town and I locked him in my studio until he answered every one of my questions about getting hired, moving up quickly, impressing big clients and more.

In this 8-9 minute segment, he outlines a 7-word phrase that's been the cornerstone of his transition.

Learn what it is in this video.

Most people think landing a successful IT career doing what you love requires intelligence or hard work... and maybe even a little luck. But, my embarrassing story reveals there's 1 single thing that matters more than anything else.

Theater is good. Staff is terribly unhelpful. I admit I was dumb and lost my ticket. Somewhere it fell out between getting snacks and calling my wife. That's 100% my fault. But when I asked the staff for help they basically said eff you. Because it's assigned seating that's a problem and I ended up just buying another ticket. It'd be one thing to try and help and it not work out. They didn't even try.

My family and I ordered delivery from here on our way through town. Great service. The woman I talked to on the phone was very polite and was actually pretty easy to understand and order from. Fast delivery and great food. Good stop if you're hungry for some Chinese.

This is our neighborhood McDonald's. They always seem to have trouble. Ordered a hot Mocha and was asked three times if I wanted a frozen one. Had to repeat my order several times. Then, ended up getting an iced mocha instead of a hot one. Plus the Steak Bagel I ordered seemed like it had been sitting for awhile. Frustrating for sure.
