For one of my clients…
We’re redoing an API and we came across this file, written by a no-longer-employed-with-us developer that was 12,000 lines of code! Now, I hope I don’t have to explain to you how insane that is.
Even worse, it wasn’t organized top-to-bottom.
So, to read it, you had to jump up and down in the file.
Through 12,000 lines of code!
I’ve done some dumb things in my coding career — we all do as we learn — but, not quite THAT dumb. In case, it’s things like this that are the “unadvertised bonuses” of my PHP course. Yes, you learn on the coding stuff.
CRUD, functions, session, cookies, etc, etc.
But, it’s the little tips and ways of organizing your code…
Techniques for real-world app-building…
All the things a veteran developer can show you (that some scrub on YouTube who’s been coding for all of 2 days and decided to make a video… can’t).
I recently got this review of the course:
I’m definitely a beginner to php and the thing I’ve noticed is that [John] does a fantastic job showing examples and explaining what each type of function is. I plan on rewatching a good amount of these videos! Really good job!
This is where I’ve always found myself unique to most other PHP teachers.
Most just show you what to type.
And yeah, that might be a more “fun” way to learn.
But, it’s not the best way to *master* a language.
That’s not even a debate.
Even the people who make those kinds of course know it.
Anyway, if you’re in this for mastery… whether you’re new to PHP or been doing it awhile, I’m confident you’ll learn things in this course that will keep you from screaming “nooooob” to anyone reading your code.
The course is up on Skillshare.
And, a little bonus… my OOP for PHP course is there, too.
So, you can learn both in one shot.
Anyway, if you already have a Skillshare account, you can just go here:
If you don’t, you can learn how to get a free account here. There’s a few hoops to jump through, but this explains it all:
