Welcome to DevTek!
You'll primarily find PHP applications that we've written as
well as code snippets and tutorials. Hopefully this site will
be out of the initial "under construction" shortly.
Easy Gantt Charts - I wanted a quick way to show a Gantt chart based off of a
CSV output of an XLS spreadsheet I was using to keep track
of my projects. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything
that'd already been done without having to set up a whole
project management application, so I decided to roll my
Cambridge Exercise - After seeing an e-mail about how the

If you're interested in learning what is required to author a
page that passes validation for XHTML 1.0 Strict, WCAG 1.0
(triple A), Section 508, and CSS 2.0, then you might want to
take a look at my tutorial I created as a learning exercise
test page to submit for validation.

One of the things coders need most is a good application to
develop under. I've seen the question posed many times as to
what the best text editor for coding in PHP (or other languages).
My personal favorite is a freeware program called
In addition to syntax
highlighting and context sensitive help for syntax, if has a
built in FTP client so that you can work directly with text
files on the server. It also provides macro support and tag
builder forms. Addditionally you can, for instance, download
the PHP manual in .chm format and attach that to the PSPAD help
interface and when inside the PHP delimiters, it'll use that
help file, and when in HTML delimiters, it'll display the HTML
.chm help file.
The syntax highlighing is intelligent in that
supports multi-highlighting so that syntax inside PHP delimiters
displays under PHP syntax highlighting, and HTML displays under
HTML syntax highlighting.
