I decided to learn php ,
so do you have any suggestion to me ?
Source , site like that?
I'm using the lynda.com php essential training course, and the infiniteskills php and mySQL course. I can recommend them both.
I think it's that one at least.
I learned the basics of php on youtube.
PHP track at Codeacademy
PHP Code Library, Tutorials & Forum
PHP Video Tutorials
Official PHP Docs
I don't know php but i know other languages like C and Python and the best advice is pratice, pratice, pratice. Use the code you are developing. Get started with small exercices and progress from there. Just code a lot and you will learn a lot. Reading the code and understanding it is one thing but beeing able to code alone is another level.
you can also learn at w3schools
I have learned all the basics in W3schools and take off from there. So my suggestion is to go with w3schools but also refer some sites php.net and infiniteskills
I recommend you to start from the following books:
PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling
Programming PHP by Rasmus Lerdorf
My suggestion is to think of something simple and worth doing and start doing it.
Then, as you find the answer, add more ideas to it.
collect email through form submit.
when you done that, you can expand from there
- can you split the first, last name
- can you save the name into database
- do you know where the submitter comes from
- can you let the submitter submits the form without leaving the page and show an acknowledgement
with more and more idea you implement, you get better and of course, your work don't go to waste
just my 2 cents.
To start with you can go to w3schools.com
If you're serious and are going to really learn a lot, I would suggest TeamTreehouse.com ... they have a ton of video tutorials... good stuff.
As someone earlier said I would suggest that you think of what you want to build first.
Then when you have a goal you will move further from that point and learn more and more and more... As while you are going you will need to learn how to do new things and you will then need to find out how to do it and again learn new things and improve your PHP knowledge.
Together with PHP MySQL goes almost naturally, and at least basics of HTML / CSS will be required so that you can do at least some output.
Other then that IMHO ultimate resource for PHP is php.net when you get to that part.
If you want to be a better programmer, you can try to solve the problems in "Project Euler".
You can also try to build something with the help of MVC frameworks like Laravel.
Happy Hacking !
After learn php basic, you can learn Code Igniter, a MVC framework that can explode your mind in SEO and Link Building.
read more than one book, coz one book cant cover everything. code a lot. also php.net should be your best friend
All you need is php net and willing. Good luck!
Video tutorials are great (only if you want to get the gist of the language). Thenewboston if you're completely beginning. I do not suggest you take his courses seriously, but just as a light introduction to the langauge.
Codeacademy is best for start
I learned PHP a while ago from this guy: http://www.youtube.com/user/betterphp/videos
There are a ton of tutorials on Youtube that will help you get started.
Also do checkout CodeAcedemy, I've heard a lot of good things about them.
