My response to this: “PHP is a dying language. Don’t get wrapped up in web code so much that you ignore the fact that the rest of the software industry, which is REALLY big, doesn’t use or care about PHP. Just like COBOL, PHP will probably always exist in some form or another. But it’s hardly used, if it’s used at all, outside of specific segments of web programming and it’s facing a lot of changes from the likes of Python, Ruby, Node, and even C#.” If all this is just noise to you and you know you wanna learn
Critics have been saying PHP was dead for years now. But, here it is… still tickin’ away… picking up market share and powering the web. Matter of fact, one of the harshest criticisms I’ve seen on PHP… comes from a WordPress blog. Ya know, built on PHP. But, with the rise of frameworks like NodeJS and the resurgence of Python… Has PHP seen its last days? Should you invest time learning it? Or, will it be obsolete in 5 years? I tackle that in today’s podcast. Give it a listen Plus, I snuck in a damn good “treatise” on freelancing.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
