I created this website to teach PRACTICAL PHP to non-nerd web designer types. Because of the

    Nope.

    Even the most experienced developers will be referring to videos, support forums and books to keep refreshing and building their skills. Yes, once you’ve done certain things a few times (ex: setting up an MVC framework like Laravel, designing databases) you will be able to do them without any help.
