This is a list of books currently on my To Read shelf... literally. I do not suggest or anti-suggest any of them at this time as I haven't read them yet.
This is not the home of dotProject or web2project. It is the home of CaseySoftware, LLC. Any dotProject support questions should be referred to their support forums.
When we start projects, we often follow the naming conventions of our frameworks without even thinking about the "Why?" It almost seems silly to ask until you run into a - hopefully, legacy - codebase that has an incomplete or inconsistent scheme.
Unfortunately, web2project is one of those codebases.
For those just joining us, we forked web2project in late 2007 from dotproject which itself was started in mid 2000. Therefore some of the code goes back nearly 13 years all the way back into the PHP 3 days. Therefore, there's a little.. cruft. And naming conventions are just one piece.
First, we've had a simple Object Relational Mapper (ORM) since the earliest days. It handles our object to database (and back) conversion with no configuration. While there are many arguments for and against ORMs, it works and makes things simple.
