Bush Flying... where I'd rather be.

I have to start somewhere and after looking things over and reading what was said elsewhere I am going to follow a "Quadruple Threat..." 

@ Book - I already have a good solid Sam's book (800+ pages) on raw PHP & MySQL, so I'm going to work through it.
@ CakePHP - a framework noted for being "beginner-friendly."
@ CodeIgniter - another framework which makes the same claim, but has a different perspective than CakePHP.
@ Yii - Mouser, who's opinion I hold in high regard, has really been up on this framework, so it has to be tried!

Given my noob status on PHP/MySQL and having all my time free, I think I will find a good benefit in working with all four of these pathways concurrently, i.e., each task suggested in one resource will be duplicated in the other three as much as possible.  Sure it will take me four times as long, but hopefully I will learn it twice as good. Wink

I do not expect I will stay with all four resources for the duration.  I expect somewhere along the way I will develop a natural affinity for the one(s) which fits me best.

I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.
