To Randy Hoyt, regarding the PHP course

Hi Randy

I want to know what type of web applications can I build after I finish the PHP course here?

Give me some examples that I can easy build after the course?

I built my first web application from the ground up after Randy's course. It's been doing decent on Code Canyon, but I am not the best graphic designer. I could do magic if I had someone that could make everything look right - that stuff just stresses me out and prevents forward motion. I would almost beg to have another Randy Hoyt PHP class. Maybe something concerning APIs or cURL. Anyway, you will learn everything you need to know to get going. Just take the time to really work on it. PHP is an awesome language - I'm hooked. It's only a leap and a skip away from Java and Javascript isn't too hard to pick up after either!

You can build whatever you want. PHP is a server side language and one of the most popular languages out there.

Whatever you feel comfortable building with the skills you've learned :) . When you finish the PHP course you should have an understanding of databases and storage so the sky's the limit. I would recommend learning AJAX (jquery is the easiest way to do it) because then you can push and pull to the db without a page refresh. ooh the possibilities :)
