Object Oriented PHP & MVC
What you'll learn
- Build a custom MVC Framework from absolute scratch
- Build an application using your custom framework
- Create a custom PDO class to handle database interactions
- Complete user authentication using OOP & PDO
- Deploy your custom PHP application
- You should know basic PHP & programming concepts
In this course we will go step by step to build a complete custom MVC (Model View Controller) framework Called TraversyMVC using object oriented PHP. We will build something similar to Codeigniter but much much lighter. This framework is completely open source and you are free to change the name, add stuff, etc and use it as your own. This framework will include...
A core library class to load controllers & methods from the URL (Also using .htaccess)
A base controller class to load models and views
A custom database library using PDO for all models to interact with the database using prepared statements
Not only will we create the framework but we will build an application on top of it called SharePosts which will be somewhat of a social network to share posts. This application will include..
Full user authentication
Access control for posts
Server side form validation
Bootstrap 4 UI
Helper functions (flash messaging & redirects)
We will also be deploying the application to the Internet
This is not a beginner PHP course. You should already understand things like variables, arrays, loops, functions and all of the basics of the PHP language. It is ok if you do not understand OOP fully. Before we start the framework project, we will have a crash course on object-oriented programming with PHP, where you will learn about classes, methods, properties and more.
