About This Class

Forms are the internet. Look at any popular application or website... Facebook, Twitter, Google, WordPress, YouTube. You use a form to submit a Facebook post, a tweet, a search, post a blog or upload a video. Knowing how to submit data from a form into a database opens you up to be able to create all kinds of amazing things.

Take Wufoo Forms, for example.

It's a simple online service that helps non-techies to build online forms. It was started in 2006 with just $118,000 in angel investments. By 2011, it sold to SurveyMonkey for $35 million. And, as of 2014, SurveyMonkey, itself, is valued at $2 billion.

So, this is a huge industry.

Learning this one thing could be all you need.

Now, nearly a decade ago, I created PHP forms tutorial. And, for those 10 years, it has remained my most popular tutorial, by far... with 781,458 views on YouTube. But, it's nearly a decade old. So, no HTML5, no CSS3, no PHP7. That's why I created this course.

That's why I created this course.

To bring that tutorial up to date.

Show you the latest in HTML5 and ensure its compatibility with CSS3 and PHP7. To teach you the concept of "Layered Defense" and how secure your online forms against hackeres, spammers and anyone with bad intentions.

So, whether you're looking to create the "next big thing"...

Or, just need simple contact form.

This course will teach you the skill that's responsible for all of it.

It's six lesson, just over 2 hours of runtime and includes the full source code for you to download, follow and use as you see fit.

an awesome class and a more than welcome training to my almost jurassic grasp in PHP forms. John is a great teacher, one of those that not only show us what we need to do. He use his time and expertise to show us WHY we need to do this, and not that. The pacing of the class is very good, all the lessons bring valuable input, and I´m thrilled to use what I learned to upgrade my "not-so-good" old forms.

Hey I'm John. Let me talk about myself for a minute :D. So, I've been a web designer/developer for about 12 years now. I specialize in the "standard" web languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL). I'm a freelancer and instructor.

To "humble" brag for a second...

I worked on big name projects for people like New York Times Bestselling Author, Michael Hyatt; online celebrity, Lewis Howes; Inc. Magazine's Small Business Owner's Council; famous copywriter, Ray Edwards and oth...
