What is the latest development with regards to web development/php
I just have core html5/css/jquery & of course PHP skills. I was wondering what are the latest technologies in these areas that I should learn as an example:
2. CSS => SASS/LESS etc?
3. PHP => not sure if there has been any new development apart from frameworks (which I know CI), templating engines? I guess i should learn these & patterns.. anything else?
The idea is that I would like to learn the "newest" thing and not something taht has been here for ages otherwise i would have to learn the newest thing anyway...

cheers for that. I realise I need to expand my skills set a bit as I am lagging way behind. I have looked at phonegap but it is very bad in terms of dynamic sites. It is ok for static sites. (from my experience anyway!) but i was using it with Jquery mobile and i think that was the problem not phone gap.

All there are useful for the development of the website . And they are inter related to each other .

Here's my totally unqualified opinion on the matter:
MVC is dead, or atleast it should be discarded for a new design pattern. If you desire php, and realize that its true power lies on the backend, you can begin creating web2.0 php application.
Basically, php becomes an API endpoint:
view (html/js) <--> JSON <--> controller(PHP)
Obviously, you have two options for the front end in such a setup you can use Angular.js, or you can roll your own with jQuery.
here's an example of a website i just built with this experimental design pattern. This simple 1 page app is a cryptocurrency fundraiser for a hopeful startup. There is no url parsing here, but if you would prefer to build the site without angular.js , you could user purl.js to parse url's for your application. I have a prototype built, but unfortunately it belongs to the company i built it for.
Bityay -- Coinvoting
Earlier today, i began the inital work of taking this idea i've been experimenting with and creating a framework for this design pattern. I have written most of the code already, but it was quick and dirty so to speak, and wasn't 100% restful. I should have the first release up in a week or two at most.
