PHP Web programming is ...                     rev 09 February 2013 ➽ back to dir

  10% - the php code that makes the thing happen
  50% - coding for security.
  20% - handling user, program, and database errors,
        with nice displays for users,
        useful displays for you.
  20% - html/css - page design
  20% - debugging (finding and fixing problems)
  10% - organizing your files and your coding stucture.
  10% - rewriting parts of it because of changed specs
            (yours and/or the person who wants the program)
  50% - coding for MS Internet Explorer, non-standard input or output,
            non-standard requirements.
  10% - looking things up in references, asking others.
  10% - staring at the wall.

  yes it's over 100% -- because writing a program always takes longer than
  you think it will -- but -- you can't leave any of those parts out!
