The Art Of Software Development (part 3): Coding To A Plan
Deliver cleaner, faster and more maintainable code.

| Getting Down To Business |

In the first two parts of this article, I spent lots of time and bandwidth spouting off about requirements, design, and the various types of documents you should develop prior to actually beginning implementation of a software project. If you're the kind of developer who hates documentation (is there really any other kind?), you've probably been wishing I'd just shut up and get to the point...or, in this case, the code.

Well, your wishes are about to be answered.

In this third part, I'll be focusing exclusively on the implementation phase of a software project, suggesting some general techniques and approaches that might come in handy when you finally sit down to write your application. The ideas discussed in the following pages are not new - heck, they're not even exhaustive - but they should nevertheless help you deliver cleaner, faster and more maintainable code.

How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL
How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL, the best-selling book by Melonfire, explains how to take full advantage of PHP's built-in support for MySQL and link the results of database queries to Web pages. You'll get full details on PHP programming and MySQL database development, and then you'll learn to use these two cutting-edge technologies together. Easy-to-follow sample applications include a PHP online shopping cart, a MySQL order tracking system, and a PHP/MySQL news publishing system.
