I just wanted to announce that we will be releasing a PHP log in system video tutorial within a few days.
Like all our videos, as you learn to build the project at hand, you will be secretly taught reusable PHP techniques and even some dreaded PHP nerd theory! Don’t worry though, the nerd theory will be woven into the videos, so you won’t even notice it seeping into your brain.
Many of the videos will be released on this blog for free, but the whole course (and source files) will only be available to Killersites University subscribers or as part of our upcoming complete web developer training package.
… Yes, a shameless plug but nerds need to eat too (and play video games) so we have so charge you guys a little sometimes!
Follow this blog to keep in touch.

In our ongoing effort to provide top quality screencasts authored by working web designers and web programmers (that means practical training) … we just released a new set of videos on PHP CRUD.
The official summary:
This is a six part series that covers how to create a basic application that creates, reads, updates and deletes records (often called CRUD) from a MySQL database using MySQLi. MySQLi helps prevent SQL injection, a common security issue. Understanding how to use a MySQL database and work with database records is an essential skill for beginning web developers.
You can find these videos in our growing collection of video training tutorials at Killersites University.
I will be releasing several free samples from this (and other series) as soon as I can find the time – busy these days watching TV.
We have several other PHP and programming related video in Killersites University .. I just haven’t had time to blog about them. More to come soon.

I’ve been out of the picture for a little while, mainly because we’ve been busy with our new video tutorial subscription service.
Some PHP nerd details:
We built the web application from scratch using a basic MVC model with straightforward database work – no ORM was required for such a simple project.
The most time consuming aspect of this project was getting the UI to look good and work well – jQuery came in handy once again.
Anyway, you will find most of our PHP tutorials in there … and soon, a bunch of new video tutorials we are working on now.
The official announcement:
After a couple of months of hard work, we finally got the new video tutorial subscription system up and running.
About the University:

I’ve had many request for access to the videos either on a DVD or in a downloadable format for viewing offline. So after many months of brushing it off, I now have the videos for you … at a small cost:
- $19.99 for the download
- $29.99 for the DVD
The videos are still all available to watch online, but you now have the option to take them home with you. Better yet, I’ve re-rendered the videos in a high quality Quicktime video format.
About the videos:
All together, the collection consist of 47 video tutorials (a few hours of videos) that weights in at 1.67 gigs! The collection now covers:
- Basic PHP
- MySQL and SQL Basics
- Object Oriented PHP
.. and a few of other things related to PHP.
