I created this website to teach PRACTICAL PHP to non-nerd web designer types. Because of the
nature of the Web today (Web 2.0, Ajax, shopping carts etc …), PHP is now one of the key
languages that I believe every web designer should learn. You could say in fact, that PHP is
one of the four pillars of web design:

  • CSS
  • PHP
  • Javascript

Oh yea, PHP is more important and is used more often than even Javascript!
