Q: Avoid database insertion when another query fails

CelsomTrindadeBefore starting, I'd like to say I'm not an advanced user on PHP, I'm still learning. I'm working on an application where I have a class to handle all database operations and I'm trying to simplify this process and catch errors in a better way. For example, when I want to insert a new user I need...

@Zeta How's the new version?

Thanks @loremipsum. The first of three questions is a "right-way" question indeed, but question 2 and 3 are more "how do you make this work properly?" so hopefully I can get some answers here. I'll check out Code Review. — vmallet 13 secs ago

If you have working code that you want peer reviewed for improvements, you should ask on Code Review instead - it was created specifically for that purpose. — Ken White 34 secs ago

have you heard of switch-case statements? Either way, this is rather a code review question — Stultuske 16 secs ago
@Stultuske The Code Review site won't accept it though, the code is hypothetical and that never goes over well. — Mast 6 secs ago

Greetings, Programs.
I've made some progress on the Person of Interest inspired game. Though, being an old man, I can't remember who else in this group was a big PoI fan.

I did a search. It was @SimonForsberg
@DerKommissar Interesting - which character? It was really the characters that made the show so good. SF and near SF TV used to get random dregs for actors that it was refreshing to see something that was well written, well acted, and had quality production.

@Donald.McLean I recall quite enjoying it. For the budget they had, it was really good.

Have no clue what you are talking about 🤣
@rolfl is a fan as well IIRC
@DerKommissar Are you a very private person? Tall guy in a suit? Highly trained assaissin? Assassin and hacker combined? A dirty cop? A decent and honest cop? Or a maffia boss?
I would guess very private person.

Q: Is this a good way to construct the class for a C++ template partial specialisation of a member function?

StoneMonkeyMarkI am teaching myself c++ by doing a series of exercises. I liked the idea of working out how hash tables could be done using just the language and no std calls.

@CaptainObvious no code, no glory...
I would suggest that you take a crack at it and if you have problems, show us what you tried, show us what is not working, and we can try to help you. Or, if you have successfully done this and are asking for feedback, then maybe codereview.stackexchange.com might be better forum. But, unfortunately, as this stands, it is too broad. Are you asking how to implement an adapter? How to implement factory pattern? How to spy (vs mock)? How to do TDD? Whether unit test is more appropriate than UI test? Etc. — Rob just now

@CaptainObvious If I had a dime for every JavaScript ToDoList post here, then... I'd have at least a few dimes

A todo, just a list.
Adding stuff, that and this.
Larger task/ irritates.
But small scope/ motivates.

Q: How could make this Django logging middleware more efficient?

But yeah, Todo lists seem to be revelatory exercises for some reason.

They're a great exercise.
This might be more for code review stack exchange. — Trilarion 1 min ago
They're also a great way to learn about boundaries, scope, scope creep, maintainability, YAGNI, etc.

If you're looking for a peer-review then you should post this question on codereview.stackexchange. It's a community like SO where people tend to give feedback instead of solutions. — Emiel Zuurbier 47 secs ago
