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So maybe you tried out some PHP and MySQL tutorials on Youtube, but found them too hard or outdated, and feel that you need a more comprehensive introduction.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

Why PHP?

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!

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
