Treehouse and PHP

I noticed treehouse is lacking in PHP courses compared to ruby. Will treehouse teach me enough PHP for me to start coding PHP?

Well why not do both? They certainly do have quite a bit of Ruby courses. Are you hoping to get a job with either language? You will learn quite a bit about each language regardless of available courses. They a constantly updating the site with more. Determine what you want to do with programming and maybe one will suite your needs over the other.

I've got the same question.

If you ask me I feel like there is quite a bit of courses available for PHP. If you've jumped into the PHP track you will see the handful of PHP courses required to complete the track, but if you check out the library (see sidebar navigation), you will see they have some more PHP courses that aren't including in the PHP Development track. It also looks like they will be releasing a new PHP course regarding a popular PHP framework, Laravel. I myself am looking forward to that one.


i could take 13 non-pro ruby courses, but only 5 non-pro PHP courses...
