PHP Course with Cookies & Sessions

I think these are really important topics to cover. I would like a course where I may learn more about them. Maybe an admin section for the shirts store? Where Mike might add/remove products, etc.

You know, that might be a good idea, since I am a bit reticent to use Ruby considering that I do not want to rely on just one service (i.e. Heroku) to deploy a site/service that I am going to want to develop long term. Call me paranoid if you must, but the fact that we need the Archive Team to save dying web services screams volumes to knowing how to control your own web presence.

You don't have to use Heroku. You can use the web host of your choice, for instance you can host your own Ruby on Rails site with A Small Orange.

I actually use A Small Orange and their deployment guides are outdated.

That's not surprising, you are paying them mostly for the server space and not so much for their documentation.

Any suggestions as to what I should do to deploy instead of what they suggest? If at all possible, I would like to avoid Heroku.
