PHP Tutorial for for Absolute Beginner

Learn PHP Programming For Web Development The Fast And Easy Way!

The PHP Programming Language is one of the most POPULAR Web Development Programming Languages for a reason. In this course I'll show you why!

You don't need any prior knowledge of coding or web development to take this course. We'll download all the tools you'll need for free, and I'll walk you through setting them up. Then we'll dive right in and start learning the PHP language.

This is the course for you if you're interested in becoming a web developer and maybe don't know where to start. It's also great if you're already a front end developer, but want to add some serious skills to your tool belt. Since PHP powers Wordpress, this course is also great if you'd like to really customize your Wordpress sites (we don't discuss wordpress in this course, but if you understand PHP, you can understand what's going on behind the scenes in Wordpress just by diving into the code and checking it out on your own).
