Blake over at PHP vs .NET has written up a very nice article to prepare those who are interviewing for a php job soon. He basically gives a bunch of php snippets and asks where the bugs are. The article somewhat morphs into a mish-mash of good-practice/bad-practice comparison and explains why one way is better than the other.

From the article:

Find the errors in the following code:

<?php
function baz($y $z) {
    $x = new Array();
    $x[sales]  = 60;
    $x[profit] = 20:

    foreach($x as $key = $value) {
        echo $key+" \"+$value+\"<BR>\";
    }
} 
?>
