As already mentioned in the earlier thread, many thanks to Dave And Kat
for a good talk and for coming across from afar.

for the talk slides.

And as Kat mentioned, she's in this month's Linux User & Developer
(Issue 74) on page 34. They've a good splash on p20 also :-)

My summary of their summary is that you can apply good programming
practice even to php and literally see the benefits of doing so. Good
version tracking helps further still (even if Dave doesn't always fill
in all the fields!).

All good stuff,
