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.
