php tutorials for web designers

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!
