PHP for Beginners
Build a Content Management System from Scratch with PHP and MySQL
Are you wanting to get into Web development, but are not sure where to start?
So maybe you tried out some PHP and MySQL tutorials on Youtube, but found them too hard or outdated, and feel that you need a more comprehensive introduction.
Maybe you want to learn how to write PHP the right way. Secure code, OOP ready, and maximising re-usability as well as finding out about PHP programming standards to adopt and adhere too?
Perhaps your boss or client threw you in the deep end with a PHP and MySQL project, and you need to get up to speed with PHP, fast.
Whatever the reason, this course is for you.
This course is going to teach you how to create web applications using PHP and MySQL. Specifically, you will learn PHP and then create you own content management system (CMS) from scratch.
PHP is the most popular website programming language in the world. The combination of PHP and MySQL is used extensively to create web applications, and developers with these key skills are in high demand. This course is going to teach you how to create web applications in PHP using the MySQL database.
What will you learn in this course?
You will learn how to create a dynamic website using the most popular website programming language in the world, PHP.
Dave Hollingworth, your instructor will 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.
Dave will 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.
Why this course?
Firstly, Dave has been creating web applications since 1999, when he created his first web application for a major insurance company. In addition he has been teaching IT for many years.
As a result, you will be learning the best practices from an experienced developer.
Dave will teach you the theory but then show how to put those techniques into practice. You will start building a CMS application from early on in the course and new techniques and theory are introduced as and when they’re needed to build the next part of the CMS.
New code is introduced one word or one line at a time, so you will never get bogged down or overwhelmed.
You will also learn real-world developer skills such as referring to and getting the most out of the documentation. This is an essential skill for developers to learn.
After completing this course, you will have the necessary skills to be able to create your own web applications with PHP and MySQL.
The sooner you sign up for this course, the sooner you will have the skills and knowledge you need to increase your job or consulting opportunities. PHP developers are in high demand!
Your new job or consulting opportunity awaits!

TL;DR: As the title suggests, this is a pretty good course calibrated for beginners that takes you from knowing nothing about PHP and web in general to a place where you can pursue more advanced topics. After taking this course, I feel confident to say that Dave Hollingworth is a fantastic instructor. He respects students' time and intelligence, and he shows this in a number of ways. First of all, there are almost no unnecessary typing/deleting/typing cycles. He puts code into his editor but we see this in piece by piece fragments. There's a huge amount of editing in the course material just to make sure that no one's time is wasted. In addition, every single function/class/concept that's being introduced in the course is introduced through the documentation page of that function/class/concept, and the documentation page is linked in the resources. I simply love this. I took this course as someone who's proficient at programming Python in web development context. I needed to switch to PHP for professional reasons and needed a fast booster that would provide enough foundational knowledge for me to scrape the docs inside out. I'm happy with the end result. However, I gave the course 4.5 start due to a single reason: The workflow. I hate, and I mean hate, when I roll up my sleeves and start working on a project/system before I understand at least the high-level elements that make up that system. Otherwise, the process is just like trying to solve a 1000 piece puzzle without looking at a reference picture. That is the only reason why I discarded 0.5 stars from my rating. All in all, I think this course would be a 5 stars course IF there was a lecture at the beginning that walked through the CMS application that the instructor was going to build. This doesn't even need to be a live demo. Only the high-level structure of the system, the technical requirements, a few use cases, and perhaps some user diagrams. Oh, and before I forget, I would definitely buy a "Sauce Code" t-shirt if any merch including those words is ever released. Jokes aside, thanks Dave Hollingworth.
