How up-to-date is the PHP track, regarding best practices

I'm interested in the PHP track, but I want to make sure the track is up-to-date with the latest "best practices."

For example: does the PHP track focus on creating server-side web apps, or does it focus on using a lean server-side app with more robust client-side activity. (From my understanding, the latter is what the kids are doing these days.)

I really want to use Treehouse to learn PHP, but more than the language I want to make sure I'm learning to do things the "right" way.

Thoughts from anyone? (Especially teachers?)

Hello, Isaac

To be honest, I subscribed to teamtreehouse with the intention to learn php, it failed me, i have learn the basics here, but if you ask me to built something for you, i am pretty sure i can't built by myself. MIke 4 Shirts wasn't enough to learn all the best practices, we need more, I am still waiting... but I have my doubts...
