Why are PHP books and videos hard for people?

April 16, 2007

I’ve read 20+ books on PHP and have watched many videos. One thing that I found consistent about all of them was how they were not ‘friendly’ to non-nerd types.


Probably because (most of the time,) only hardcore code-monkeys seem to be writing these books. That means either one of two things:

  1. They forget WHAT made it hard to learn to program.
  2. They never had trouble (in the first place) because they were … well, hardcore code-monkeys!

Fortunately for you, I was not born a hardcore code-monkey (I was hardcore in other areas …) and I still remember those tricky concepts that frustrated me.

With that in mind, I designed the videos to make learning PHP dead simple. In fact (from what I hear,) my PHP videos make learning PHP easier than any other source out there!

Yes, this is a bold statement, but the emails and conversations (from people all around the world) tell a story.

… I used to read and then delete the many comments and emails I would get. But a marketing buddy of mine slapped me off side the head, and reminded me that I should be posting these.
