comment Are #regions an antipattern or code smell?
@DeadlyChambers The reason is stated in the second paragraph - I am using editor macros to inject common code patterns into the file, the regions help keep the file structured so similar items are grouped. I am not putting a region around a singular property, but all properties fall into a designated region depending on their attributes "protected_const_properties". Did you read the post??

comment Minimizability or readability?
If your code is all HTML-y then you should look into something like Dust.js -- with a little finaggling you can produce huge strings of HTML from js objects quite easily.

comment What is the recommended learning path for PHP and Javascript?
@YannisRizos Yes, I realized the deep stack thing after I posted my comment. I will still stand behind it on the basis of learning to architect is more important at this stage than getting your feet wet all over the place. I know web dev is always going to be "and now I need a little php, or flash, etc" to get your project done. This patchworking is not all that conducive to real skills development is my point I guess.

comment What is the recommended learning path for PHP and Javascript?
Books are ok as far as they go, but you have to have pain making you learn your lessons -- you have to program and pick up all the disciplines surrounding it. Look at it like this, in a couple hours someone can learn how to read music to the extent where they know how to map the scribbles onto piano keys and time and force. But that won't make you a musician, and more importantly it won't make you a good composer. Focus on one language and becoming a PROGRAMMER. 'Knowing' other languages doesn't buy you much.
