Yep - Murach is what we're using, too. I'm taking Terry's Javascript course this summer (he said he'd waive the prereq), but he doesn't use Murach for it. Fun times, indeed :)

That's what I am working on now & hopefully in the summer. Fun times. I found the Murach books really good. The PHP one explains MVC a OOP design pattern:

OOP PHP is part of Terry's PHP course and we've just gotten into it, with about a month left in the term. I could spend a whole semester (lifetime?) on it, though :) Very powerful, but it takes some getting use to.

Very pretty site. I'm impressed. So does Terry teach OOP PHP?

I did succeed at creating a module (the easiest type of extension to build for Joomla). It estimates the cost of quilting, binding and batting ( I had to do one small hack - didn't quite have enough skill when I wrote it, but with what I'm learning now about object oriented programming and more advanced PHP skills, I probably would do it differently.  I'm now working on a website that will have pretty extensive functionality - blog, advanced forum, bookstore, etc. What fun!

Thanks! You bet my PHP class helps (wouldn't even attempt it without some PHP knowledge), but Joomla has special ways to go from one file to another and back that is confounding me :) I'm taking javascript in the summer, I think (depending on my work schedule).

Wish I could help .Sounds like fun. Curious how it works. Bet your PHP class helps.

Anyone have experience building extensions for Joomla? I'm trying to build a module - and interesting experience and it is teaching me a lot.

We are trying to start one here. There is a Wordpress meetup with many members and regular meetings as well as a conference scheduled for September. Joomla is a bit more challenging although with many distinct advantages. I have not met as many Joomla people as Wordpress.
