A friend and co-worker shared this with me this morning. Seems like a nice way to go, instead of rolling your own mobile detection:
Isn’t it cool how far the web’s come? Check out this tutorial for how to tie into Yahoo’s weather data to systematically change a site’s look based on the local weather and/or the time of day.
Was going to write up a little piece on how to find the current file’s directory on a webserver, but the little article below does a good job of explaining it. I use this all the time for creating my .htaccess/.htpasswd combo, but can see other times when this would be useful as well.
I’ve adopted their code snippet for my own TextExpander time saving purposes:
Co-worker came across this yesterday, and I had to immediately read it word for word, bookmark it, and setup a post for Keefr.com.

All of this articles’ tips involves getting into the PHP, so as always, make back ups, and try to familiarize yourself with PHP and its syntax as you add, edit and delete.

Nice intro to MVC concepts with PHP, separating the view of your PHP applications from the rest.

Man, this list reads like my resume. Web designers and front-end developers skill sets are always shifting. I’m excited and relieved to see that all of this list describes a lot of my professional knowledge.
This is a really cool framework utilizing HTML5 within PHP — my favorite combination in web dev. It includes a pretty impressive set up features rolled up in it including search engine optimization, CSS, xHTML, jQuery, GZip for speed and even some IE6 compatibility bits for the browser that just won’t die.
