I want to be a programmer
I work with Moodle quite a bit both at work and as a personal interest but Im not a programmer.
What I want to be able to do is build some admin tools to aid the use of Moodle to admins who either can be trusted with direct DB access or dont have the skills to create some decent queries to pull out the relevant details.
So really Im looking to introduce myslf to PHP programming while hooking into a (mysql) database while specifically looking into Moodle dev.
Does anyone have any pointers for me, using PHP libraries and existing PHP functions, calling those functions or adapting them, using API's what ever they are?
