My new video course, Introducing PHP, is now available from video2brain. It’s aimed at complete beginners, and assumes no prior knowledge of PHP or any other programming language. However, the course should also be useful as a refresher for anyone who has dabbled with PHP, but hasn’t quite “got it”.
As well as showing how to install a PHP development environment on both Mac and Windows, I explain all the basic structures in PHP. The course then brings everything together in a practical project, showing how to process an online form and send the data by email. To make the form both secure and user-friendly, I show how to validate user input and display error messages when the wrong type of date is input.
The videos follow the same philosophy that underpins my books—I teach you not only how to do something, but also why it’s done in a particular way.
The full cost of the course is $39.99
, but you can get a 20% discount by using the code PHPD20 at the checkout . Alternatively, you can access the course as part of a video2brain subscription, which gives you access to more than 150 courses for as little as $14.99 a month.
