Description

Do you want to know all about PHP 7? Are you looking at learning a language that you can use to create robust web applications? If so, welcome to PHP 7 Simplified!

PHP 7 is a popular choice for web-based application development. It is lightweight, no-frills, and powerful. In a nutshell, PHP 7 lets us address the common requirements of current and future web and mobile application development.

PHP 7 Simplified exists as a blend of text, videos, code examples, and assessments, which together makes your learning and creating journey all the more effective.

We’ll start off by getting the basics right. Once your foundational knowledge is firmly established, we’ll put it to practical use by working on a small example application. Then, we’ll move on to learning advanced programming methodologies such as high performance programming, functional programming, and object-oriented programming. The course is structured to ensure that you’re learning about all the industry-standards along the way. 

Further on, you’ll build a user profile system, simple shopping cart, and social newsletter service.


Midway through, we’ll learn how to interact with a database. Having done that, you’ll be equipped to build even more complex applications.

We are not done yet. This course wouldn’t be complete without us learning how to implement software design patterns, improve web security, and perform testing and debugging.

The goal of this course is to transform you into a complete PHP 7 developer.

This course is authored by some of the best in the fields.
