    What can I do…

    Me: What can I do if I need to try to hack an existing (not self-made) PHP library?
    Sensei: Patience.
    Me: What can I do if I do not have the patience?
    Sensei: How long have you been coding?
    Me: 10 years… but why?
    Sensei: Sit on the floor, close your eyes and try to think about the last 10 years.
    Me: About the beginning?
    Sensei: If you have a good picture in your memory about the first 3 days of the first self-made program then try to remember the first time when you needed to hack that code.
    Me: Oh yes. I could hack that.
    Sensei: That was your code?
    Me: Yes.
    Sensei: Was it easy to read? Did you remember some lines of it?
    Me: Nope.
    Sensei: Why did you hack that?
    Me: Thanks Sensei… I will think of these.

    MySQL + MongoDB + PHP

    We used MySQL with PHP… In the past months we try to migrate MySQL tables to MongoDB. And yes it was not a simple method ^_^ (but we did it).

    Now I’ll tell you a simple source of bugs because i have too much fun with this. We have a users table with some fields for example member_type (int). The types already migrated to MongoDB. We fetch the user and we make a query with member_type value but it doesn’t work for us. Why?

    Yes. When i call var_dump then i get a string but in MongoDB we need an integer. If you don’t use any ORM then if you fetch any data from MySQL what is an integer then you need a type conversion: (int)$row->member_type;
