New course: PHP for Beginners

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of “PHP for Beginners”, my latest course on Udemy.

On this course, aimed at total beginners to PHP, I’ll teach you the PHP programming language, and take you through the steps to build a working CMS in PHP and MySQL from scratch.

Along the way, you will learn how to secure your code, how to write reusable, more maintainable code using programming standards, and how to structure your code using object-oriented programming techniques.

I’ll teach you the theory and then put the theory into practice when building the CMS.

You will also learn how to style your site using Bootstrap, how to integrate third-party code into your site, how to store data in a relational database and use this from PHP code, and more.

The course is very thorough, and goes through everything from installing a web server on your own computer, and editor to writing the code to create your web app. Towards the end of the course you will even learn how to upload the code and make your code live on the internet (very useful if you already have your own hosting account. This is not necessary to complete the course though.

In summary, the course will teach you the core skills you need to know to become a productive PHP programmer.
