"Certainly over the past 2-3 years, my web development skills
have changed dramatically. I look back at the source code for
Geocrawler and can't believe I wrote that. The source code for
PHPBuilder is also far from exemplary, as it's really just a
hodge-podge of various GPL'd software packages cobbled
"SourceForge was really the first serious app I helped write as
an experienced PHP developer and I think it shows to an extent in
the end result. The code is pretty much broken up into decent
libraries and sensible function calls. The database structure is
very clean. The various subsections of the site are generally not
dependent on the other parts of the site."
"But it's not perfect. If I had it to do again, I would try to
make more of a point of keeping the HTML layer more clearly
separated from the database layer, either through objects or a
cleaner function library."
