Perfect timing, I had an idea about the training question.   :)

I'm going off the hopeful assumption that I'm not the only wanna-be
programmer that has a hard time making the leap from reading a book to
production code. One of the things I think would help is a set of 10-15
workbook type exercises that are explained elsewhere. The use of
controlled challenges should help me and hopefully others like me grow
our programming skills.

So my thought would be to coordinate. We pick a PHP book and come up
with a series of workbook type questions for each chapter of the book.
Folks can come to the NYPHP list for deeper explinations. The
"challenge" of the questions can be graduated by the book's intended
audience and by the particular chapter. Later chapters can include
material from the previous chapters, etc.

Does this sound like a reasonable idea and what would the challenges be?
