With my age, learning programming may not as fast as when I'm younger. It's in my interest to learn about new technology, not only by reading or by theory. Im going to learn it by making an application that work with people register, login and used the application.
Google Chrome, Google App Engine and Python are my new "need to know" and "want to do" in relation to programming. I want to develop web application and share the experience with others.
I have my own favorite framework in PHP. Horde Application Framework http://www.horde.org/ Still gasping to learn it. Because I had write and program a PHP web application, I just feel bored of another PHP and want to try another challenge.
Another programming framework, python framework for me to learn is
The Django Framework
and I will begin with Google App Engine, Python and Django
