I was already familiar with Javascript so I just wanted to see how PHP compared. This course did a nice job of running through the fundamentals and now I feel I have a decent working knowledge of PHP as well. Thanks Chris!
Great intro lesson! Moves fast so that you don't get bored...
A Very basic intro into PHP. Chris made a good set of videos for those who are not into reading and learning. I find most of what he teaches here is the absolute basics which people who have some experience in any other programming language will already know.It's still a great class to get started so would definitely recommend .
