    PHP application help


    Hello, first of all, i want to introduce myself to these forums.
    I'm Alex, i'm 23, and i'm a student.
    Now the php stuff:
    In a few days i will participate in a contest, we've already got the subject, but i never heard of these terms before.
    A little help would be apreciated.

    Creating a web application that can expose a particular type of REST APIs in an easy format, to be used by a user without programming knowledge.

    If you Google REST API, you should find what you need.
    There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

    The wiki article is really confusing, actually.

    There's not only the Wikipedia. This tutorial looks pretty good:

    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ot...http-and-rest/

    When you're already familiar with the HTTP basics, you can even skip some parts.

    The idea behind REST is pretty simply: Instead of building all kinds of protocols on top of HTTP, why not use HTTP itself? REST is a kind of "HTTP rediscovered". When you understand HTTP and realize there's more than GET and POST, it won't be difficult to understand REST (at least that's my experience).

    There are certain words used by hackers to try to gain access to systems and manipulate data; therefore, the following words are restricted: "select," "delete," "update," "insert," "drop" and "null".
