I’ve started the process of learning to code PHP and I’ve got to the point where I understand how stuff works but I really learn best by doing.
I’ve gone through tutorials etc but don’t really feel like I’m learning to code by myself. I had in mind to code a CMS because that’s the kind of thing I’ll be doing once I’ve got to a good level. The problem is I’m not sure if that will be too big an undertaking or not and also, I’m not sure about the logic behind a CMS (how it chooses to display what content, how a templating system work etc).
Basically, can anyone suggest a real-world project that would be good for learning? If the CMS is a good idea, is there anywhere that I can see how they work fairly in depth (logic, not code).
I’ve looked at a few CMS’ to see how they work but the amount of files and code to get through is a lot and it’s beyond me right now to understand it all.
Apologies if this comes up as a duplicate post, I tried to post as a guest but got an error.
