 ★★★★★ “I was expecting a beginners course. I took this to make sure there weren't any gaps in my understanding. But this goes a lot deeper than other beginners courses and I've learned a lot more than I was expecting to. Great course, well structured. It would be good if there was more homework/practices, but that's stuff I can do on my own.” - Mike Haydon

★★★★★ This was for me the best beginners course of PHP. I already had Beginners PHP but it was like just to have an idea about PHP. But with this course I really learned PHP, how it works and how to code, I’m now ready to go Learn Advanced PHP Programming. Thanks” – Luis Miguel Marques da Silva Pinheiro
