PHP - tutorials and resources for all levels of expertise!

I had been planning to revise the things I did in my mere 4 months professional/commerical work experience with PHP & MYSQL (and Apache) over Windows platform. I did a lot.. solved numerous complications, disiciplined my interpreted programming language skills, and incorporated my ideas into the couple of projects..

What helped me the most? the experience and skills of my extraordinarily talented team lead;
What bored me the most? coding the next .php without thinking to innovate more durable and appealing solutions to reccurent problems..
What did I like? Scrum + Agility + Web Development .. exponential success!

But after 1.5 years, all I can recall are some echos and the nightmares of being lost in some opensource OO php code.If I had the mountains of php code and mysql stuff that I wrote in those 4 months, I would have been proud again of my skills in mere 4 days..

Without it, I needed some resources for quick overviews that I could walk through while doing brainstorming for my thesis study 80% of my daily time.. So I found this entry:
