PHP and MySQL are incredibly powerful open source technologies that allow people to create functional websites and apps that go way beyond basic HTML. While it can seem intimidating to someone with no background in coding, working with PHP is much easier than many realize. With the right guidance and a desire to learn, most people can learn how to put together a functional web app in a few days!
This PHP / MySQL Tutorial Video Course is narrated by Robert Tucker, a long-time trainer, lecturer and consultant who specializes in helping people learn how to use technology to solve real world problems. In this high-impact course, Robert walks users through the creation of a functional PHP / MySQL interface from beginning to end, explaining where needed the important technical points without relying on excessive jargon. This is not an overview of complex theory, but a hands-on primer that will allow even beginners to create usable solutions quickly!
Robert shows you how to make the most from these free technologies used by everyone from small startups to the biggest technology companies in the world.
This course will take you from zero knowledge to a place where you can actually build a website using PHP. It is well put together and takes a step by step approach to teaching. I am not building the project that the course specifies but rather using the knowledge gained to building a different project with a view of incorporating all the key aspects that ensure my application will be secure.....It is free but I am willing to bet that it is equivalent in value to many of the paid courses on this platform. Indeed I am very grateful.
I was using mySQL 5.6 and the examples had "mysql" function calls instead of "mysqli" calls! This kind of thing should be mentioned up-front!
The instructor is very thorough but needs to update the materials. The links to the quizzes and exercises no longer exist and lots of people are asking about them in the discussion board. I want to be able to check my work!Also the screenshot video is very blurry, and it doesn't help if I made the video larger. The resolution stinks.
