Beginners PHP for Non-Nerds!

Teaching PHP for nearly 10yrs!

Studioweb:  HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP video based curriculum for the classroom  learn more

Welcome to!


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:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • PHP
  • Javascript

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

Thanks for stopping by,

    September 2, 2015

    Yo! Flash was dead a few years back when Steve Jobs put the hit on it, by not allowing Flash on iOS. Then Firefox slapped Flash off the side its’ head, by blocking it. Then Facebook’s security chief ripped into Flash, calling for it to be trashed. … But wait, there’s more! Now Google is …

  • Why I don’t believe in Ruby – and you shouldn’t either.

    September 1, 2015

    Ruby once was the rising star in the server side development world. Many angry Java programmers (I suspect) jumped on the Ruby on Rails bandwagon, tired of the bloatware that Java and J2EE had become. … I don’t blame them. Java used to be my #1 language for several years. But no more and for …
