thenk83SitePoint book and how I learned...

I learned PHP5 from this book: http://www.sitepoint.com/books/phpmysql1/. I highly recommend it. It took me 1 week to learn the syntax and 2 weeks to make decent web applications. Now, I don’t believe in learning based on line by line what the book says. I deviated from the book a lot and referenced different functions. It also really helps to have your own web server set-up somewhere. Mind you I didn’t have any development history except HTML.

I also learned PHP based on nessecities. What dynamic features will I need. What should I learn? I know based on that I was able to learn at some sort of a starting point and from there on. I was constantly trying to make the scripts I made better and slightly more detailed.

My first script was an uploading script. I learned how to limit certain file sizes and types. Then I moved from that to renaming files uploaded based on the date and time they were uploaded. From there I went to storing these names, file sizes, and file types in the MySQL. Then I thought, hey I need to be able to admin this so I created pages that would pull information from the database and remove unwanted data. This is how I learned and I learned what functions did what I needed.

Some other good help sites are:

http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp
http://www.sitepoint.com/books/phpmysql1/

Hopefully this all makes sense and I’m not rambling but I hope whomever wants to learn it has fun with it like I did! I feel like I’ve accomplished something at the most.

Feel free to contact me if you need help. 7 years ago

sproutworksI like php 5

I have started adding some PHP 5 code to my websites. I have found some good uses for simplexml, and I am slowly rewriting my database code to use mysqli. I haven’t used much of the new object model, but I will use it when writing new code for my own use. I am developing all my sites using php 5.1, and my webhost (dreamhost) has 5.1. I’m glad they keep up with technology trends. 7 years ago
