New Poker Site

Hi!

For the last 2 months, I've been working on a new Poker site. This might seem quite random, but I recently have enjoyed playing Poker and I wanted a way to be able to track my hand history, helping me to learn from my mistakes. I decided that I wanted to build a program to be able to manage my tournament history, and from there it kind of escalated into a full-blown site.

I spent a good month of the new site working on a Poker algorithm to determine the chance of winning a hand, given any number of hands and board cards. This took forever; it worked, it just wasn't fast enough. I needed to be able to analyse millions of hands in seconds and my algorithm was barely able to do 2 million hands in under 35 seconds. So I spent a great deal of time trying to shave off milliseconds, researching how to make PHP faster in certain situations. It was actually quite fun to do.

I've now come to a stage where I'm alpha testing the site. I want to be able to launch a Beta for it by the end of the year. I'm going to offer a free version and a paid for version. The free version will work like the premium version, only it'll have limited storage space and premium will have a few extra features and kinks.

If anyone who plays Poker is interested in testing it out, feel free to comment below and I can give you a link to sign up. The site works currently only for PokerStars users and for No Limit Hold 'Em.

I got to tell you Patchesoft I am a big fan of yours, I am constantly looking at your new creation, I m very impressed by all the scripts and apps you have created, please be so kind of telling me how can I get that good at PHP, I have 4 weeks learning it, and I want to know if there is any path where I can open my mind a little bit about the creations that I can make with PHP.
ps. sorry for my grammar, English ain't my first language.

Kind Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

I think the best thing to do is to try and create your own side projects. Practise coding systems that can be useful to you- when I first started learning PHP I created PHP Games that were very simple and it helped me learn a lot about using databases and coding structures.

The more you keep creating, the more you will learn. If you ever get stuck on how to create something or figure out a solution to something, try using stackoverflow.com. It provides lots of good detailed solutions to programming problems :).

Hope that helps and thanks for commenting!
