I started to learn PHP, MySQL after I got in touch with HTML-CSS(where I created a simple site with CSS for Maharashtra Mandal ,BITS Pilani though it was never used 😛 ).
The Login form had always excited me. I learnt how it worked and found out what I would have to learn to make one myself. I found many options available to me such as Ruby on Rails, Python – Django and PHP.
As I have mentioned before, I wanted to contibute to the development of PHP Based Open Source CMSes. I decided to start with Plugin Development for WordPress. A large and nice Documentation on WordPress itself, Very large number of Tutorials on other sources on web and a supa-large and an always ready-to-help community were important factors that influenced in my decision.
As I started to understand basic structure of the Plugins, I wanted a simple idea to work upon.
