Reaction to killerphp.com
I’ve received many emails over the last few years, with complaints of how confusing PHP seemed … of how hard the documentation on the web seemed to be.
So I created killerphp.com to help those web designers who seemed to be more inclined to design and not to code.
THE WEBSITE LAUNCHED
I put up the first few videos in July, and at the same time, I let people know on the killersites.com forum about them.
Since then (and to my surprise), in the month and a half that killerphp.com has been online, there has been some interesting things happening:
- The Digg community seem to like the videos: over 800 diggs last time I checked.
- The people at Zend Developer zone mentioned an article I wrote and recommended my videos for beginners.
- Many PHP sites started mentioning killerphp.com.
According to Google, the term ‘killerphp.com’ has appeared in over 18 000 web pages – in less than 2 months! Overall, not a bad reaction in this short a time.
IT’S NOT ALL BERRIES AND CREAM AT KILLERPHP.COM
Generally a positive reaction to the material, I do occasionally get complaints from (what I guess are) experienced PHP programmers, that the videos are too simple or that I’m not the most exciting speaker.
I know I need to keep working on my nerd-speaking skills but too simple!?
… For me, that means I’ve done my job – I’m trying to teach people who don’t know php …
That said, I do appreciate everyone who has taken the time to visit the site and I especially appreciate the feedback, both good and bad. I will try to improve and expand killerphp.com based on what you tell me.
