Another great, easy to follow - I learn so much from your classes, keep up the good work!
Allowing for pausing to digest it will take considerably more than one hour to run through. No mention of back end php scripting to post html form contents. Chris is easy to listen to, bitesize lessons, clearly very skilled at php programming. Can also recommend Chris' Wordpress course.
I personally recommend these lecture because they are very suitable for the beginner level PHP developers
