Learn Codeigniter - the most popular PHP Framework! In this course you will build a complete application in the CodeIgniter Framework from the ground up. You'll learn how the MVC pattern works as I take you step-by-step through everything needed get fluent in CodeIgniter.
Some features in our application will be a personalized dashboard for any user who registers and logs in. We'll have AJAX publishing for all of our Todo Lists and Note's.
You'll understand how to expand upon these features when we are complete.
Here we build an API controller with reasons related to an AJAX application. We then do a little code refactoring and lines of demarcation! Please also download the dashboard_view.php below.
We make our database list out our todo items. We also make sure creating a todo immediately adds it to the DOM, so there is a little refactoring happening as well.
We add the delete ability whilst debugging some of our code.
We implement edit on existing notes and cancelling them.
We are now ready to finish off the TODO styling so people might actually use it! (Revised): I had to manually add the audio at 10 minutes as my mic gave out.
My name is Jesse.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 10 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simple way so you don't need wrestle with all the questions I had!
