Beginners PHP: With Stefan Mischook

Learn the basics of the PHP programming language by
following along with Stefan's step-by-step instructional videos.

This beginners PHP video tutorial course was created for web designers who have little to no programming experience.

Where most other PHP tutorials and books assume you know programming (or at least, that's what it seems like ...) assumes you need to have things explained (and demonstrated) in non-nerd terms.

Video Course Highlights

  • Learn practical usable PHP .. not nerd centric stuff you'll rarely use!
  • Considered by many to be the easiest to understand video course on PHP.
  • PHP lessons taught in a practical GOAL oriented way - you will quickly learn PHP that you can use today.

Order of the videos: just start at the top and work your way down.
