Do you want a comprehensive introduction to PHP? Like seven-hour, 34-video comprehensive? Then try our new course, PHP Fundamentals.
What You’ll Learn
In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Jeremy McPeak will teach you the fundamentals of PHP. You’ll start with the very basics, using variables and writing simple loops and functions, before building up to coding classes for simple object-oriented programming (OOP).
Along the way, you’ll learn all the most important skills for writing apps for the web: you’ll get a chance to practice responding to GET and POST requests, parsing JSON, authenticating users, and using a MySQL database.
Here are some free lessons from this course, as a preview of what you can expect:
PHP Syntax and Variables
Every language has its own syntax. In this video, you’ll learn about the basics of PHP, and you’ll see how to store data in memory by using variables.
Error Reporting in PHP
Error messages are important to developers—they tell us why and where something went wrong. By default, you won’t see any PHP errors in the browser, so in this video you’ll learn how to modify your PHP configuration to display error information.
Conditions and Decisions in PHP
Almost every application you write will need to make decisions and respond to certain conditions. You’ll learn about conditions and decisions in this video.
