Holy cr

Readed some books about PHP but it was such boring that i never finished a book and withhold me from learning, this course helped me out straight.. After seeing a free tut on youtube i subscribed the course and jeez, i don't even need goals to get or stay motivated cause i have the instructor: Edwin Diaz, his way of teaching is friggin awesome (and fun) and easy listening. To be honest its keeping me away from bed xD.. I really really love the course. If i need to describe the course from my personal view, one word: Epic. Really looking forward for the stuff that will be added in the future. Great job and thumbs up. Greetings from a Dutchy

Best PHP course

This course is just awesome. You will learn the basics and then you will jump to making your own CMS. Every little piece of code is described very well, so you exactly know, what you are doing. After finishing this course I was ready to make my own social networking site and that's amazing isn't it? Another great part of this course is its instructor, who helps you with every issue you have in short time. I've have already done many internet courses, but this is definetly the best one.

What people are saying

step by step

Xxxx I can say witthin few day I been able to learn so much about php by showing me step by step Just struggling to get into it I like the course but the videos freeze quite often and have not been able to get Brackets Live Preview working.

This course is really awesone, Because the Professor is really clear in what he explains, in addition, he guide student step by step what we have to do or not and the most import why.

The way Edwin explains step by step is phenomenal.

The step by step demonstrations are so very good, including Edwin's mistakes.

Edwin supplies all the code to set up your own blog and then walks you through step by step.

The instructors teaching style is unique and goes step by step.

I was a perfect beginner and just by following it step by step, i can say at 70% of the course, that i can already turn a simple css/html website in something completely dynamic creating my own cool features... Edwin is terrific, He always gaves fast effective and comprehensive answers for a perfect beginner like i was and i can say that i will keep going with him following the e-commerce and OOP courses that are already in my bag and add probably more.

Edwin takes you step by step through learning PHP and then building a website that fully incorporates PHP.

The course covered a wide range of topics you can do with PHP, and it builds up your knowledge step by step.

He moves step by step and explains things clearly.

Love from Kashmir India Thankyou Edwin Sir... After finishing this course and few other php related courses i can say that Edwin's course has given me the best knowledge as he explains everything in depth and you actually get to build a real world app step by step and not just given some small examples or mini sites like other courses do.

Awesome explanation, step by step!

thanks for everything... i need a favor... can you make one table with filters... Really great course, Edwin takes you through step by step, can't wait to start his other course on OOP I absolutely love this course.

I had many PHP courses but I highly like that Edwin takes time to explain everything easily and after he explained basic you can follow step by step and build a robust application.

copy and paste

Large amount of copy and paste at a fast pace makes it hard to understand whats going on at times.

Copy and paste of PHP code is widely used in this entire lesson.

Even tho Edwin does make a lot of mistakes while coding it did kind of help me because i recognized his mistakes even before he did, which made me think while he was coding instead of having no thought process and just pretty much copy and pasted what he did.

Follow this EXACTLY because he copy and pastes and just jumps around like a mad man at points and does like 6 things on the same episode but then the next two episodes are something completely different and doesn't show you any form of simplified way to fix something The course is great for beginners, but if your any bit versed in other languages and you feel as though you would like to adapt what he is doing while following through DO NOT <- this will cause so much turmoil as you go.

I cannot continue with the course because, at the end of every and each one of those lectures (and i did a lot of them), my head, and my eyes where in pain, because all the time he copy and paste things from one place to another, he moves up and down really quickly and i cannot follow him, I watched until lecture 104, until a say enough!

This is not simply a copy and paste code class.

I personally try and not copy and paste as much as Edwin does as i I'm learning more by typing my own code over and over and correcting my mistakes where necessary.

- He does lots of mistake - He does lots of copy and paste between files, changing his mind, doing typos and so on... - He doesn't indent his code properly, leaving tons of blank lines between blocks, it's driving me INSANE Learning PHP as a language is a small thing, learning how to CODE properly is another and this course will not teach you that.

Do yourself a favour and sign up to this course if you would like to learn not only PHP programming but also how to code a script from scratch, start to finish, and without having to copy and paste everything as you go.

This is the best, you can learn PHP as easy as copy and paste.

half way through

Great course so far (half way through).

Although pitched at beginners I'm half way through and have learned a lot and becoming more confident with some of the more common tasks that php performs.

Edwin takes a lot of time to explain exactly why you are doing the things that you do By half way through building the CMS I had enough knowledge to be able to pause each video after Edwin explained what we were going to do, and go off and do it before watching the video to make sure I got it right.

Edwin is a very skilled teacher and a good speaker, he is very upbeat and positive which I didn't even realize I appreciated until half way through when his relentless encouragement is what kept me going.

This is my first experience to actually purchase a lesson on Udemy and I have to say that Edwin's lesson is worth it.I am half way through the lessons and was putting off rating it until I was sure what to say.Edwin is a great personal teacher.I love how he makes it look easy; how he enjoys doing what he does; and my most favorite part, how he makes himself look like a novice,from making trivial mistakes to being happy when the code works.That motivated me and made me comfortable making mistakes(which happens a lot if you're a beginner like I am).I almost forgot how he jokes around(Always needing coffee) in between lessons makes for a good entertainment .

I'm half way through at the moment but thanks to a really good balance between pace and practice, feel that I am grasping the concepts in a way which will stay with me and not be forgotten.

I'm really enjoying this class, Edwin is an awesome teacher, I'm about half way through the CMS creation and can't get enough.

So far I have achieved my learning goals with what Edwin has provided in the course, and I'm only half way through the material he has provided.

Just over half way through but I find this course to be a bit disappointing.

Prior to this I barely knew what PHP was, now I'm piecing together simple applications and I'm not even half way through.

I went from knowing literally nothing about PHP to being able to build some basic stuff by myself and i'm not even half way through the course yet.

sense of humor

Love the instructor sense of humor.

he is making small mistakes looking for them to resolve and this makes course so enjoyable and he has sense of humor.

But a cool instructor with a sense of humor.

His sense of humor is very cheering.

Edwin Diaz has a majorly corny sense of humor!

Edwin makes learning PHP very simple and has a great sense of humor.

I like Edwin - good instructor and nice sense of humor ;-) - I have just started on php and after doing 20% of the course I already feel quite confident in using PHP.

but in overall a cool instructor with a sense of humor.

His manner of explaining all the things consistently and in detail with a good sense of humor makes a significant contribution to that.

knows his stuff

Edwin clearly knows his stuff!!!

Edwin Diaz knows his stuff and does a great job breaking down the basics of PHP.

:) Edwin has a great personality and knows his stuff.

All I can say is Edwin knows his stuff!!

To "EVERYONE" else the instructor knows his stuff and teaches step by step how to do simple things and gradually introduces us to ways we can use what we learned in our own webpages.

This guy knows his stuff Edwin is a wonderful instructor and I find his energy really makes the course engaging.

Edwin is a funny guy, clearly knows his stuff and teaches it well.

I am sure he knows his stuff and he feels he can be spontaneous because he knows his stuff, but as a beginner, I find it excruciating to follow his random pointers and "Oh let me show it to you this way, this value here is same thing as that value there which is also same thing as this one right over here."

html and css

If you know HTML and CSS then removing his bootstrap integration is possible, it just takes time.

I'm not sure I like the method of taking a functional theme and removing large sections, why not build it from the ground up using basic HTML and css - and layer on the php to give the functionality?

I know HTML and CSS.

But I really suggest to anyone who wants to take this course to learn basic HTML and CSS before taking.

I am coming from a heavy html and CSS and javascript background and Edwin is so easy to learn from So far (a few hours in) Edwin is very descriptive and takes his time teaching you everything you need to know.

I take my 1 star rating back the time when I bought this course had little knowledge about html and css so I thought that would be covered but this course is about php The the instructor is very clear and knowledgeable best thing on php on the web Sorry for the previous low rating Edwin is a great teacher.

To take this course, you'll probably want to already be familiar with HTML and CSS.

It's best to start this course after doing at least a little html and css.

We mainly learn about HTML and CSS but the websites we're making aren't really dynamic.

everything is well explained

Everything is well explained and he moves at a pace that is easy to follow!

Everything is well explained and you get enough exercise on every part of code that is used in real life situations.

Everything is well explained and clear.

It really simple, keep going Everything is well explained and even though I have basic knowledge of PHP it's haven't been boring or repetitive, love it.

like his teaching style

I really like his teaching style.

I've since purchased another course from Edwin (Laravel) because I like his teaching style.

Edwin is a great teacher also a funny one, and I like his teaching style.

content management system

I now have the knowledge (Just from this course alone) to create login systems, content management systems and much more.

This course covered a lot of ground and the new features constantly being added do add value to the final project (a blog site with content management system).

You start out by learning the basics and then go on to build an entire content management system.

Building a content management system is a good size project and you will learn a lot from this course.

A full featured CMS (content management system) and more A very comprehensive course indeed.

real world project

At the beginning of the lectures he often greets the student and constantly reminds you to stay motivated, both at the beginning and at the end of the videos and he keeps pushing you to keep going, which is good :) I have given this course 3 and a half stars because I notice when watching the lectures he is making simple spelling mistakes and not writing very simple PHP syntax especially when it comes to the beginning of the real world project (CMS) that you learn to make, once you have learned the basics of coding PHP.

Real world projects are what Edwin creates during his courses and that is what makes them so great and easy to learn from.

In my prior learning resources, projects were fairly short and not as directed at full implementation for a real world project, nor did they do much testing, debugging, and refactoring as part of the workflow.

But one thing I want make course for PHP which includes all core, oops, mvc ..if you have video on mvc concept with some awesome real world project.

I like that this lesson builds up to a real world project where you make a Blog/CMS system :) Overall I would still give this 5 stars, there's nothing so major that it would be worth removing a star.
