comment Separating words in a string
Did you check any online information on how to solve this problem before asking? Like for example en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word_segmentation?

comment Which algorithms/data structures should I “recognize” and know by name?
Alternative solution; assume you charge by the day and have a maximum charge. Attach a paper tag to the key when you let the locker and write the Julian day number on it. When the key is returned, look at the tag to calculate the rent due. Missing or defaced tags attract the maximum charge. The unused keys are stored in a bag (since there is no need to select any particular key from the free keys when letting a locker). Total data structure size: zero bits. All parts of the algorithm are O(1).

comment Which algorithms/data structures should I “recognize” and know by name?
Neither a queue or a stack is appropriate. The problem states that the customers are renting the lockers. Therefore you need to determine, at the time the customer returns the key, how much money they owe. If you charge per-time-period, then you need to know how long they rented it for, so you need a data structure in which it is efficient to determine the rent start time for a locker, by locker number. If you're charging by the day, one solution would be to store a 16-bit Julian day number in an array indexed by locker number.

I've never tried to assemble a team of PHP programmers. But I once tried to build a nontrivial project in PHP, so I feel for you. I get the impression that culturally there is quite a difference between PHP pracitioners and (say) Python or Java practitioners.

comment What individual needs to be aware when signing a NDA with client?
I've dealt with a wide range of confidential information many times in my career as a consultant, but never been asked to sign an NDA. The Official Secrets Act yes, but an NDA no. Well, except by Microsoft at a preview of Windows 95. I didn't sign, and they didn't check. But this has no bearing on whether you should sign. If you need legal advice though, ask a lawyer, not us.

Why was this question migrated? It seems to be like it fits better in StackOverflow...

comment What are some good, simple examples for queues?
Maybe flood-fill (unless you think that's too close to BFS).

+1 for the comment from @dsmith. With I could +1 it many times, in fact.
