After that date, we need to process individuals days.…So let's go to the Pend Oreille website…and remind ourselves of how the data is structured.…It's the deep moor weather data that we need.…And inside there we've got, folders for each year.…If we open 2014.…Inside are more folders, one for each day.…If we open one of those folders, inside there, are 11…files, one each for the different type of measurement that they're taking.…
We're interested, in just three, Air underscore…Temp, Barometric underscore Press, and Wind underscore Speed.…If we open one of those, we can see…
David introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in PHP. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
