I'm not sure if this goes here or in the db category...
I've been working with PHP/MySQL for about 10 years now and have had great success with the small-ish projects that I've worked on - no full-blown apps but simple user-level stuff and small backends (I'm proud of it anyway lol)
I've now been faced with developing a new site at work and they're actually going to allow me to do it with PHP as opposed to .net which is so much easier for me...the catch? the database is MS SQL - no biggie
However, I've been searching high and low for sqlsrv tutorials and almost everything leads back to topics around PDO - a term with which I'm not unfamiliar, but I cannot find a simple tutorial to get me started - just help me to form a simple select statement even
Ultimately I'm hoping that someone here has places other than php.net where I can go to learn more about this - the overall project is super small but knowing how we work around here, if it's successful I see more of these types of projects coming up
Any thoughts and help are greatly appreciated
