Are you new to web development (or PHP) or interested in freelancing? Then course is the perfect match for you. You will learn all the core PHP fundamentals you need to get started as a beginner PHP developer.
I've started several startups using PHP and it's allowed me to:
Build my dream applications from scratch
Travel the world
Work from home (and work remotely around the world)
Find freelance work anywhere I go
Always have clients to work with
Always have money in the bank
PHP is one of the worlds most in-demand web languages. WordPress is a content management system that runs over 32% of ALL websites in the world, and it's built using PHP as its coding language. If you decided to learn just one coding language in your entire life, I would suggest PHP because of the high demand for WordPress websites. It's the money-making programming language.
If you know PHP, you can create: websites, content management systems, web applications and it will allow you to create startups like Facebook (Facebook actually used PHP!)
Everybody is excited to learn brand new languages, but the truth is: PHP runs so many websites it would be crazy NOT to learn PHP. Knowing PHP allowed me to travel the world and start a startup in Ireland — and it allows me to code from a beach! If you put economics, market demand and coding languages aside, this is the one language that's enabled me to have a better life.
Over 1 in 3 websites use PHP. 32% of websites use WordPress which is built using PHP, plus there are tonnes of sites that use other content management systems, or use frameworks like Laravel (also built using PHP).
You can literally find a job anywhere in the world if you know PHP. You can easily supplement your income, or change careers, if you know PHP.
Here are some of my students reviews (these are REAL 5 star reviews from my other PHP course)

He is great! I love that he doesn't talk too much nonsense.

The instructor covered a lot of content in a fast but still understandable manner. Having the basics of PHP I can start making dynamic web pages. Thanks.
*********************End of Reviews *********************
By the end of this course you will be a Junior PHP Developer. If you need help or get stuck, or just need further explanation... I am here for you (I don't have teach assistants to outsource questions to; you will get an answer directly from ME). I've created a free developer support group with over 13,000 web developer from around the world — that means 13,000 more chances for help, answers, clarity and support. But let's be honest: I'm a teacher, my success depends on your success... so I will make sure you succeed!
No nonsense or fluff:
Many other instructors like to talk your ear off, or tell unrelated stories, and say the same thing over and over again. Personally, I find that extremely boring and I won't subject you to that kind of nonsense. You're paying to learn a new skill, you're NOT paying to hear my life story. There's even a review from a student saying exactly this (above).
How I teach:
Every lesson is designed with a specific pattern to help maximize your learning time. It goes like this:
Learn the theory
Learn the code
Practice the code
I will teach you about a new subject, we will then dive directly into some code so you can see how it works in real life, and there is a task at the end of every lesson for immediate practice. You can watch some free previews if don't believe me.
Other courses have a practice lesson at the end of a section — but I know you want (and need) practice right away, so every lesson has a practice task and it's up to you to decide if you want to do them or not.
You will be learning a skill that can set you free from a boring 9-5 job, help you change careers and help you make more money. If this course helped you earn an extra $1,000 this year, that'd be a great investment, right? Well... when you learn PHP, you can earn A LOT more than that. $1,000 is pennies compared to how much you could make. Or maybe money isn't your #1 motive... you can start a new company and make hobby websites and apps using PHP as your backend programming language.
Udemy has a 30 day money back guarantee. Don't like this course? Didn't have time to take the course? It doesn't matter what the reason is, you can request a refund. And I completely support this! I don't want your money if you are not going to learn from this course, that's an unfair trade in my opinion. You have NOTHING to lose by learning PHP with this course.
Commonly Asked Questions:
Q: Should I learn PHP?
With over 1 in 3 websites using PHP and over 1,800,000,000 websites (1.8 billion websites as of 2018), it's the smart language to learn. That's over 600,000,000 websites using PHP. That's right. Six hundred MILLION websites.
Q: Can you make money?
When you know PHP, contracts literally fall into your lap. To be honest, I turn down a lot of freelance work because I don't have time for it! Go to indeed dot com and search for PHP: you will see tens of thousands of jobs in the US! These are actual jobs, not just contracts (remote jobs included!)
Q: Will PHP be around in the future?
According to the TIOBE Programming Index, it's the 8th most popular language in the world. And statistically speaking, it's the most popular backend programming language for websites. Remember, over 600,000,000 websites are using PHP (as of 2018).
