You will probably be using built in functions without even noticing you are using them when you start your “learning to program journey”. Probably the most simple one is echo.
What is a Variable

A simple calculator
Having used a simple calculator using Actionscript I was keen to see what was on offer perhaps using Javascript or php.

Output MySQL Dates using PHP
Dates are displayed in different formats in different regions for example in the UK we output dates dd-mm-yyyy but the US usually use mm-dd-yyyy. .

The big advantage of PDO is also its main disadvantage. The same functions work on 12 different database, all you need to change is the PDO::__construct function. However not all functionality of a specific database may be accessible via the catchall PDO functions.
PHP Database Extensions - MySQLi - Object Orientated
This blog looks at how php uses an Object Orientated approach to connect to a MySQL database.
PHP Database Extensions - MySQLi - Procedural
This blog looks at how php uses Procedural functions to connect to a MySQL database.
Using custom fonts
If you want to have your titles or other text on a web page in non standard font, or you are not sure what fonts your intended audience is likely to have installed on their computer you may want to think about embedding your the fonts within the web page.
