    Hi guys, Thanks for the awesome "WuB" episode. That was really informative and inspiring. Could you fix the "Overview of the repository pattern" link in the "Resources" section? Currently it's broken.

    @Aleksandr - thanks for the note about the broken link, just fixed it!

    The video says that we'll be using the UTF-8 charset "most of the time". But in the PSR-1 coding standards document that we were told elsewhere we should be referring to, it says we MUST use only UTF-8. So, are you saying that under certain circumstances we would violate the basic coding standards?

    Why are you using a datatype of text rather than varchar for email?

    can you guys make an php oop course, the jump from beginner to this seems too fast for me

    Why not send your associative array into the database write? You make a Request class and convert the array into an object before sending to the database. It works just fine as an array. Seems like an unnecessary step unless there's something I missed. Thanks!

    Great PHP Courses and video on PDO. I am learning PHP in the venture to replace a very old Perl front end to a MySQL Database I have been maintaining for the past 5 years. I have already learned a lot that will allow me to replace quite a bit of the existing dated code. Many thanks.

    How do you run your project locally with the .dev extension?

    @ben_cook28 I had a bit of difficulty with this as well. You need to follow the link to this blog post: that Stephanie Q posted above. Also, there is now a screencast that walks you through it: Setting Up a Local PHP 7 Development Environment With Docker & Compose. Still having issues with the .css file working and data being passed from the front end app to the mysql table, though.

    Is it possible to get the initial code?

    I try to copy it but I have an error all the time that I can't find...

    Looks like the Docker file for this has changed significantly since the blog directions. Is there an update to these directions somewhere?
