PHP for Non-Programmers

PHP is one of the most popular languages for creating dynamic websites and controlling user interactions. Sites like WordPress, Wikipedia, and Facebook use PHP, and about 80% of all websites use at least some PHP. Having a command of PHP is a great tool to have, and will give you the skills needed to develop and maintain dynamic, interactive websites. But what if you’ve never coded before? This course with Joe Casabona is aimed at giving non-programmers the knowledge needed to get started using PHP. Joe covers the basics: variables, output, control structures, and accepting input without the need to build a website. He also provides chapter quizzes so you can test your skills as you go, along with two different projects to work on so you can apply what you’ve learned. If you’re feeling like you’ve got a grasp of the basics by the end of the course, Joe wraps up with a look at a few advanced PHP topics.
