Because of recent demand, I decided to release my PHP video tutorials in iPod format – that means they play on your iPod. 🙂

These video were originally intended for viewing on a computer monitor, so some of the code examples will be harder to read since the iPod format is tiny.

Nonetheless, the discussions may be useful to watch on your iPod as you’re … say, on your way to work or school.

Thanks,

    In a nutshell, I show you that PHP scripts actually run on the web server. This in contrast to a language like Javascript, that actually runs on your home computer. This may seem like a nerd-nuance, but in fact, understanding this plays a major role in how you look at building dynamic web sites.
