well i'm pretty ok in MySQL just the basic queries and stuff....
We are going to have a meeting tomorrow night in Ikano Power Center. You want to come along?
The key issue is the long-delayed backend and whether to go PHP or complete it in ASP.Net.
I don't think he can make it, Adrian. His dad's having a birthday dinner.
Who?? hyper_raider or Wilfred??
Should be hyper_raider I think.
Oh, I didn't know.
Well i'm pretty ok with PHP and MySQL since I've been working on a long term project using those. Wont call myself a pro though.
Cool! Well, are you familiar with MS Access as well? Because if we move to PHP, we will need to port the data over to mySQL.
Well there's some perl scripts that convert MS Access MDB files to MySQL dump files...but I don't have much experience on MS Access though
Whooooo!.... now that i've gone fulltime freelance doign web dev/design... i've got plenty (enough to sit around starbucks just for fun) to work on other projects that i haven't had time to previously
Have done quite a few projects that involves php + mysql... so i'm quite familiar with it. porting over is not a problem... can probably write some automated thingy-ma-gik so that it involves minimal human interaction....
I'm pretty stoked about this project... (might be effect of caffein from starbucks)....
HAHAHA!!! Let's get this show on the road and complete it!!!
Just to keep everyone abreast with developments, we have just concluded our discussion at Starbucks.
We are going to go with PHP and mySQL. And Falcone will be working on a new layout for the site.
Since he's over here and has been fully briefed on the requirements, etc., wilfred will be in charge of the backend's development.
So, yhng, he or Ken will brief you on how you can best help us in the development of the new PHP backend.
Rather belatedly, I'll clarify -- Hyper.
ROTFL!! I know. Chai told me during the meeting.
LOL! Definitely wasn't me since I don't visit the forum as much as I used to...
Huh?? I remember you telling me!
Oh well, the meeting's over anyway.
Back to topic!
There's always PHP & Postgres but then again, nobody here's familiar with Postgres, I assume.
Sure just drop me a PM and i'll see what I can wack up. Be warned though, my sig says it all.
ROTFL!!! I will be doing a LOT of praying then!!
postgres is good too..... i have not had a chance to deal with websites that draws 10k hits a day... so not quite sure what are the performance differences between mysql and postgres. Anyone?
