So far we've been hard-coding our ships in the
ShipLoader class. In this tutorial we'll take things up a notch by fetching that information from a database. First we're going to create a new database to hold our data, using
PDO. (If you are not familiar with working with databases in PHP, you can check out the PHP for Beginners Part 3 series, which covers database fun.) Once we have the database created and filled with some ship data, we'll learn how to fetch that data back out again as an object our app can work with.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
