what is the best way to learn PHP , is there any recommended schools or do I just research
w3schools website and then get a sample project. do it for the problem solving purpose at first and then start hitting for commercial interest and then keep coding. don't stop at all. keep coding until you solve a problem which others are having. see if you can minimize a complex solution to simple one.
that said, here is how to go -
sublime text editor
code. code. code
the best way to learn coding is by coding. start with simple projects and advance from there
2nd for w3schools. They always have really great tutorials.
W3Schools, I'm sorry to say, has some horribly outdated tutorials. Please don't start there.
The best way to learn PHP is to start with something like a simple to-do list app. There are many tutorials that can help you get an idea of how to go about it. It'll make you comfortable with some of the conventions of PHP, how mysql queries work, some of the very basics (loops, variables, using arrays, etc.)
Install XAMPP on your computer and start with your first one-page app. At the same time, sign up to Stackoverflow and ask questions over there. You will learn a lot. The most important thing is to learn how to think a program â€” 90% of the code is in your head. PHP isn't a particularly difficult language to understand. In fact, it's newbie friendly and it won't take you a lot of time to learn.
Best of luck!
read, code, read, code, read, code.
When it comes to coding it really is all about taking action.
It is a constant progress. Just keep coding.
(and yes. w3schools is really good for learning, also there are alot of books on PHP (and any other programming language))
I would recommend: http://thenewboston.org/
I've learned a lot from him and the guy is pretty funny too. Many video tutorials. You can't go wrong.
w3schools is still the best.....unless you can take a class for it
second vote for thenewboston
Yep. I don't know about you guys but reading text is boring. Videos are the way to learn.
Second to that.
A lot of PHP tutorials are incredibly outdated since the language has changed a lot over the last few years. You can start with the basics at tutorialspoint and nettuts+, this will help you get to grips of the basics of the syntax and help you become comfortable with building projects. I'd recommend using PHP the right way. It depends on what you want to do with your knowledge of programming, if you want to gain more knowledge of programming languages than PHP, I'd recommend you read a book called SICP. PHP is a very popular language so don't be afraid to check a forum such as hotscripts or codingforums if you need help. Stackoverflow is a good place to join too.
I suggest you check out Pharaoh Tools. They got really cool and easy tutorials. Check out their website. please google Pharaoh Tools. =)
Lynda.com has very good tutorials, you can get most if not all of them from torrent sharing websites.

Search for "Become a web developer from scratch complete course" by bk071. It covers PHP too.

As most of the above said you can learn it from w3schools.com... It is the best way to learn PHP...
