PHP Basics | Trailer1:01 with Alena Holligan
Hi, I'm Alena.
Developer, teacher, and lifelong learner.
Let me be the first to welcome you to the PHP community.
If you're just beginning your programming journey PHP is a great place to start.
PHP is one of the most widely used technologies on the Internet.
I'm almost certain that you've heard of at least one of the many projects built on
PHP such as WordPress, Drupal, Wikipedia or Facebook.
A conservative estimate is that 25% of the web is built on PHP.
PHP is a great choice for creating simple yet powerful websites and applications.
In this course I'll walk you through the basics of the language
ranging from basic statements to conditionals.
We'll be creating a simple unit converter as well as a daily exercise program.
We'll then finish up by combining those programs with HTML
to create a personal web page to demonstrate your skills.
Are you ready to start having fun?
While at the same time creating powerful web applications?
Then allow me to be your guide on this fascinating journey
into the world of programming.
