I am 21 from Manchester, UK and I have been working as a web developer for a number of years now, I have a bit of a close bond with php so that is what I specialise in! Although as a web developer by trade I am up to date with everything from node.js to RoR. I am currently juggling various responsibilities as the director of a CIC (Community Interest Company) helping social enterprises get up to speed with social media and bringing their websites up to standard. Hopefully I have picked up enough knowledge so far to pass on some genuine skill sets for anyone who cares to watch!

If you're not up to scratch with the basics then why not check out the first PHP Easy for the basics.</p>
A description of what this course include. Just to be clear, I don't aim to make you an object oriented ninja I'm just here to help you understand the key concepts and understand how to design and build web apps.
A quick introduction into the world of objects and why we use them. Oop is relatively new in php in the whole scheme of things but since php 5 the language is bang up to date!
We create our first class together and understand the syntax, we also implement our first properties and methods.
In this lecture we take a quick look at how to use the __construct magic method included with classes that helps us set up our object when a new instance is created.
In this lecture we cover the basics of inheritance in order to further specialise our superclasses by extending our subclass to add functionality.
Encapsulation is the idea of creating a cleanly defined interface and hiding key parts of your class from code outside of the class in order to avoid outside code from ruining parts of your system.
Polymorphism is the idea of creating a common interface that takes different forms in order to help us maintain a clean interface for client code.
In this lecture we take a look at abstract classes and how we can use them to implement the theory learned in previous lessons such as polymorphism
We come to an end of our objects section, next MVC frameworks!
A quick introduction into the world of Model View Controller, This is the model that runs almost all frameworks.
Why would we use mvc patterns and frameworks when we could keep it all together in different ways? Well in this lecture i quickly explain why.
We take a look at setting up our framework.
Let's create our first controller!
Let's learn about views! We will look at models when we create our app in the next few lectures
In this lecture we begin work on our very own todo app. I think the best way to learn is by doing, so let's get straight into some real world coding and set up our database and config files in laravel.
This lecture covers the first part of our app: creating tasks
Second part of creating our tasks
In this lecture we create the page that will display all of our posts.
We almost have our basic CRUD operations finished, this lecture covers deleting our items
Our final action is complete and we have a working app!
This course is okay up until the trek into Laravel. Unfortunately, Laravel 4 syntax and function appears to be completely different from the version the instructor uses so after Lecture 12 you're best to find another resource or read Laravel's documentation.
The tutor is obviously very knowledgeable, but struggles to get this across in his delivery sometimes. Long Pauses and watching as he deals with unexpected errors in the code, point to a lack of lesson planning which anyone providing this type of tutorial needs to do in advance. It was worth watching section 2 for some of the nuggets and gems in there, but section 3 is a little hit and miss. i.e. in an MVC framework, no specific lesson on Models?
Been meaning to look into working within a framework. Will look into Laravel framework. Thanks
The section Objects 101 was very informative and easy to follow. Thank you for your help.
I find this course very clear and interesting
