Nothing new for a while

I have been quite busy with freelance work the last couple of weeks. I have been doing a large amount of PHP coding for all the websites and I have been finding an interesting trend in my coding. I have done Java professionally for almost a decade (woo..I am getting old) and when I code Java, I keep things strictly object oriented and clean with as much reused code as possible. I code PHP for freelance for a number of reasons, the main one being LAMP hosting servers are a dime-a-dozen (maybe even less now..) The strange trend with my PHP coding is the sort of code I put out. Now don’t get me wrong, everything I do works, but its a mess of procedural code. I haven’t put out this messy of code since I was learning in high school! Anyway, I usually don’t have to do a lot of maintenance to the code once its put out, so that negates the maintenance nightmare of the code. But I never really realized how much faster I can put out small projects with messy code, that probably explains why there are so many little projects with completely unmaintainable code bases. *sigh..and I guess I am not helping things by putting out my own 😛
