My first experience programming in PHP was writing my own online guest book.
Gets to you used to interfacing with a database (or flat file) and working
with user input. After getting a taste of the syntax, take a gander at
Object Oriented Programming in PHP and the many security issues that crop up
when handling user input. Keep the function list handy and you
should be on your way.
