Default Re: I want to learn PHP

w3schools In One word: NO

Although w3schools is ok for the odd reference, using this resource is not recommended.

I'm a professional software developer, and I urge you to read this site:

http :/ / w3fools . com

A little Explanation:

Software development is hard, no actually that doesn't do it justice:

IT DAMN HARD.

The ratio of complete rookies and cow-boys (mediocre programmers) in the IT world is sadly high.

This is a very bad situation.

PHP as a language does NOT help this situation.

This is not meant as a knock on PHP, but from a language design perspective, its looked down on.

And for good reason:

It takes a GREAT deal of expertise and care to make good clean code in PHP.

Sadly because it has a low barrier to entry, this means that un-trained, non professional individuals (no fault on their part) are able to bang out code that *seems* to work.

These things end up being monstrous works of pure evil..

stories of which end up here:

http : / / thedailywtf . com

Learning to program and create good clean software is a very long journey indeed.

OK, this is not marketing trivial, I have NOTHING to sell.

I'm a passionate programmer, I want to raise the bar. And that starts with better education.

Please see my signature: I'm trying hard to start a community of passionate IT individuals, ones who care for our craft, not just the pay check at the end of the month.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

If you want to learn PHP then i would like to Suggest visit w3school its a free online tutorial you can get more information on PHP on there.

As well as i am sharing you some knowledge bellow on PHP Just Read it.

There are several software development projects which are being outsourced to eastern countries like India since the costs incurred are comparatively lower and the standard of quality is not much affected.

An interesting statistic about PHP development reveals that there are more than 20 million domains which make use of PHP and include Wikipedia and Facebook which are some of the most popular sites in the world!

With PHP Development, one can manage and operate all types of activities with PHP experts and PHP developers. There are many software packages based on PHP Development which can be customized and utilized like the off-the-shelf applications which include Joomla, Drupal, etc.

If you have a dual monitor setup, this is really easy to pull off: 1. Open php.net, begin reading the documentation. 2. Try to build your own scripts on a Linux web server or a WAMP server on your PC

It really depends on which type of php programming you want to learn. Pure PHP, or something along the lines of how PHP is used for Drupal or Magento. While they use PHP, it might be a lot easier to get a tutorial book on using Drupal, and pick up PHP from their book, and that way you can learn two things at once.

Exactly, don't limit your source. Start somewhere...then continue to grow and learn once you master the basics. But, do not rush it.

Good luck!!

Sitepoint books are pretty good and they're written by people who do it for a living (php, java etc). I learnt css from them (to a level I need).

I have their php book but found the language too complicated to bother with (the book is very "thorough"). Now I understand the basic principles of it so I am able to edit existing code (chop bits out) where needed, like in themes for WP.

I didn't see a need to spend months learning the in and outs. The book is good though.

My suggestion is to code what ever comes to your head. Think first. Say you wanted to code a page that would display content posted by a form.

What I would do is create the basic form HTML. Give the input field a name.

Then the PHP part.

I would look up how to get the content of a post name.

Then, I would research how to display contents on the page.

Just take everything in a step by step process and you'll just remember it later on.

I started with this book as well http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-PHP-...087915&sr=8-14, I think its a great book to get you started and learn the basics. Also with the Internet being so powerful now you can easily search some of your questions via Google and find proper answers for commands, tutorials, etc.

Once you get a grasp of the php programming language you can always hit up stackoverflow and search through the questions tagged with "PHP". So many code snippets to pick up and scavenge for your projects- it's really an amazing community.

The best way to learn php is to try to build something with it. Set a small goal. You learn best by doing.

Here's a tutorial that I always refer to:

Build a CMS in an Afternoon with PHP and MySQL

It's amazing, although kind of advanced. However, it is THE golden standard for a PHP-Mysql application, in my opinion. It was life changing for me, as it introduced me to the world of Object Oriented PHP.

As far as the MySql deal--- it is another free tool, widely used and is synonymous with PHP-- it's the database, and is most likely the tool that powers this very forum. You could have work for 100 years with this combo- as PHP has drivers built in to access Mysql. Php/Mysql accounts for over half the Content Management systems in the open source world, namely Wordpress.

So, I guess that wraps up my .02.

Looking for a PHP example? See below. That's what I do, and wish you the best in your pursuit of PHP development.

The best thing about the Internet is you can learn almost anything for free or relatively cheap. A good place to start is both at W3Schools and at UDemy.

W3Schools PHP course is free
W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

Udemy also has some free started stuff in PHP too before you work your way up to a paid video cource:
