I am new to PHP (Have good j2EE and ASP .net experience) and now want to kick start developing a simple website (A database connection and simple inserts is the max technical stuff i plan right now). I have signed up at zymic for a free hosting (MySql included). Now please suggest me:
- the available IDEs for developing on PHP on windows OS
- and any beginner level resources that you have come across, for a .net/java guy which may help me to quickly figure out the differences
- would you advice me to go for frameworks like joomla etc as a beginner? or is it better i start exploring these after im familiar with PHP?
Thanks in advance, Abhi
