My name is Jesse, I'm 29 and married to a sweet little Puerto Rican woman.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 9 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 simpler way so you don't wrestle with all the questions I had!

A lot here. This course covers a lot of material. The one think i missed is why certain operators such as => and -> are used. p[perhaps I missed it, but some more explanation of why PHP uses these when in other languages would have used an = would be nice.
I have mixed reviews about this teacher. He knows his stuff..that's for sure. Some lectures he explained things very clearly, so they were very easy to understand (like the one where he was on video and did a demo with phones). Other times, I'd have to watch the video, and re-watch it again just so I would know what strings to actually take notes on, and what ones to leave off because he was just showing examples. He really wanted to show us a lot, but he would jump back and forth so much during a lecture that just as I was starting to understand what he was teaching, I'd get lost.
Jesse did a great job walking through each project. Throughout the course, there were common mistakes made during a typical coding session. This gave a valuable learning experience in the debug process and steps to take while finding 'where you went wrong'. The course was helpful with proper syntax and explanations as to why certain methods are the preferred way. I've taken a few free PHP tutorials online, and this course is by far worth the money!
A lot of why I tried did not work. I contacted the instructor and used the questions on here but i have not received a response in over 9 days! don't waste your money. there are free php lessons on youtube and online (do a google search) that has better support than udemy. udacity.com and coursrea are far superior and are FREE!
The course is great. Goes a little fast, but you can always pause the videos ;) Learn a lot from it!
