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So maybe you tried out some PHP and MySQL tutorials on Youtube, but found them too hard or outdated, and feel that you need a more comprehensive introduction.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.

It is very good and excellent course But I just wish that it could cover other popular projects with PHP like E commerce and other popular projects' uses not just a CMS, But it was very well put, structured and explained.

I just begun my first class. I have already learn something new regarding the XAMPP setup of Apache config. I have taken college credit courses where they just give you a book and do exercises. I am finding that this method of learning may be my style. Will let you know as I progress in your courses. Thank you.
