PHP & MySQL course for absolute beginners | Become a PHP pro
- Basic HTML (I will be discussing most of the stuff that we need).
- No programming experience at all.
- A working computer/laptop.
Welcome to the course ‘PHP For Beginners’ In this course we will go step by step to digest all the basics topics in PHP, so if you are looking for a quick and understandable way to become a master in PHP, this is a perfect course to start with. Most of the sections will have programming exercises and at the end of every section, I will be making the exercises to show you the solutions! The reason why I think it’s important to make the exercises is because you can only learn PHP by DOING IT!
We will also be looking at the basics of MySQL Database since the final section of this course is inserting data in a table, then we will be outputting the data from the table in the browser, and then we will be creating our own login and register script!
In the beginning years when I started programming, I came across so many videos and tutorials where tutors would’ve just create the code without explaining it and I always wondered “why are you doing it this way”? Therefore, I try to give you examples why you should use this method instead of another method and I try to give you real life examples.
This course is created in a logical order to make you a PHP hero in on time! The course has been divided into the following main sections:
2. Variables and Data Types
3. Operators in PHP
4. Control structures
5. Functions in PHP
6. Build-in functions in PHP
7. How to work with superglobals in PHP
8. Introduction to databases
9. Using a database to create a register/login script
Why you should learn PHP
Anything that you can do on a web server, you can do with PHP. Do you read blogs? Well, blogs are created in PHP! Do you order stuff online? Well, that’s also created with PHP! What I’m trying to say it: PHP IS EVERYWHERE!

My name is Dary Nazar and I am a software engineer. After I U-turned away from a comfortable yet unfulfilling life, I cherished into this field – teaching programming. At this point in my development, I have experience in all facets of programming.
I’m constantly learning new web technologies and design methods. Currently, I’m playing around with Node.js and Python, apart from polishing my designs.
I try to make complex topics as easy as possible by explaining it to you in a simple and understandable way.
