    Hey everyone,

    I've been looking around for a little while to find some sites that offer HTML and PHP training.


    Anyone have a recommendation of where I should look?

    It can be paid or free courses, doesn't really matter to me as long as it's of good quality :)

    Thanks!

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm reading though w3schools right now and I didn't realize how much of the basics I already knew lol.

    I'm sure once I get out of the basics I'll have to pay attention a little more :D

    w3schools and tizag for the basics. If you want to get into "advanced basics" then you should look into object oriented programming (OOP). It's not PHP specific, but there are some differences compared to other languages. If you're familiar with jquery chaining then this is good:
    http://www.talkphp.com/advanced-php-programming/1163-php5-method-chaining.html

    Otherwise, basic OOP can be found here:
    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/oop-in-php/
    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/object-oriented-php-for-beginners/


    Once you're done with the above the next best thing to do is work on a project. Try to make a blog, a forum, an ecommerce platform. You may have read 1000 tutorials/books about php coding, but you're still as useful as when you started. The only way to learn is to practice.

    When i was learning i was doing on a old school way - books :), yeah i know it sounds boring and harder, but it's actually BEST way to learn anything, because you can take the book and reread the lesion without getting your eyes bleeding because of pc screen, and also you will skip any possibility of doing copy/paste while testing out things so once you learn something, that will stay in your head.

    I was learning programming on a same way, and it's way harder than html and php but it's also, as i said, worth the time and hard work.

    www.lynda.com is a pretty good place for both, it's a bit pricey but tbh if you use it then its worth the money.

    I know an easy way to download the video courses for free too, PM me or reply here if you wanna know how.
