Hey Aurelian!

TheNewBoston is great! Bucky and Alex are really good at teaching PHP but it is a bit dated. I used alexs 200 PHP videos to get me off to a start and combined with Treehouse I have become fluent in OOP and Procedural PHP code.

Hope this helps!

Uh well yeah around 3 and half years xd . Well ill do the same , i watch like 200 of theirs videos to get started and i hope i can manage to get a good start and be fluent with it later on . Here in treehouse is a bit well a bit messy like in email not sure what his talking about in a way ;/ Thank you :)

Bucky Is just absolutely hilarious! It is really fun learning from TNB. Have a great time!

I did learn from him the basics of JavaScript but its useless coz i want to learn PHP first xd in a way useless. Thank you :) You too have great time in treehouae :)

bdw what can you do in PHP with your skill since you have 1.2k points here ? What stuff did you go throwugh?

I did create a full scale social network (Check it out here: http://onepost.uphero.com/) and it took me about half a year to learn to code it and about 3 months to come up with the concept

I have only started treehouse but have been going through 1000s of courses elsewhere like lynda.com from all I have learned I can understand and use all aspects of PHP like OOP, PDO, and frameworks like Laravel.

Try PHPacademy on youtube they are really good.

I did use Lynda.com to leanr HTML and CSS but its kind of outdated there like no HTML5 and no flexy layout . Ill see also PHPacademy :) Thank you . But since you did quite alot of this work , can you make something like : Log in / Log out, Block/Unblock , Post Comment/Delete it, Add friends, picture , special scores etc..? How long did it take you from when you started to lean PHP to where you are now?
