Reverse engineering

May 4, 2010

I’m hoping to create a magazine style website – after some googling I came across a great WordPress theme, Mimbo.

Reverse engineering is the best way to learn and understand website code. Just start changing things and see what happens – then work out why it happened! Stick to using open source code that’s covered by things like the GNU General Public License, and be sure to acknowledge your debts.

I’m going to make a website. The last time I did this was about 9 years ago.

This blog is going to track the dev work, the trial and error, the useful bits of info I pick up along the way, as well as acknowledging all of the amazing individuals, the unsung army of opensource coders, who give talentless hacks like myself the opportunity to get skilled up.

I’ve chosen PHP over ASP (because support seems more readily available and because i’m a wuss) and I’m going to use wordpress as my CMS.
