I'm working my snail pace through the current PHPlive class, and at the same time, I'm reading Kevin's book "Simply JS". In the latter, Kevin talks of the three layers, Content, Presentation and Behavior. Shouldn't PHP (and maybe XML) be folded into this model?
I'm not new at this - I just know enough to be dangerous. But I think you all are beginning to establish the high ground for teaching - Lynda has bits and pieces but no one really puts it all together..
Just a thought.. Maybe an overall course to "lay out the waterfront"... 2010 version..
