PHP Application Design
Created in 2009
Building the festival registration system in PHP really helped me develop a skill to foresee the needs of an application. When this system was completed it was used for four separate festivals, each with their own needs.
Many of the elements it had to serve included: registering users, handling merchandise, meal plans, work exchange, community service, scheduling events, pricing cutoffs, reports and much more.
However, at the time I created this code I had not learned about object oriented programming so the code was rather bloated.
Most of the code I was able to wade through pretty easy. The work I had done on the Email Integration really prepared me for this. However, without the object oriented programming principles, the resulting code involved a lot of multi-dimensional arrays as well as serialized data.
