Getting started with PHP/Web development
I was recently asked to help a friend making a website (basically a PHP time management/schedule system). My problem is that while i have sufficient experience with desktop development (Java, C, etc) but, apart from modding some things, no experience at all with PHP/HTML/CSS/JS.
So i've been looking for some frameworks/best practices/etc to get started with this project. It appears that it would be the easiest thing to use Bootstrap for all the design stuff and some PHP framework for the coding (although i don't even know what PHP frameworks exactly do). A quick Google search gave me Yii+Bootstrap which looks fine on the first glance. Can anyone comment on it or suggest better alternatives? Also are there some good ressources for "getting started with PHP" (not in the sense of learning for loops but in the sense of differences in comparison to desktop development)? And what are good IDEs?
Thanks for any help in advance
