PHP Tutorials For Beginners – Daily Delicious Links April 16th 2010

Today I spent some time going over PHP tutorials. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite sites and tutorials covering PHP. PHP coding is not a strong point. My PHP skills are limited to editing and adding code to a WordPress theme. But I do like working with PHP and plan to strengthen my skills as a coder. Take  a look at these sites and let me know what you think.

  • Lots of information about PHP scripts and tutorials to help with beginning PHP

  • “This tutorial is for the person who understands HTML but doesn’t know much about PHP. One of PHP’s greatest attributes is that it’s a freely distributed open-source language, so there’s all kinds of excellent reference material about it out there, which means that once you understand the basics, it’s easy to find the materials that you need to push your skills.”

  • Lots of code examples and PHP tutorials for beginngers
  • “It’s safe to say that nearly every website that’s up-to-date these days is using some form of content management system (CMS). While there are a ton of great free options that provide us with a CMS to power a website (WordPress, Drupal, etc.), it doesn’t hurt to peek under the hood and get a feel for how these systems work.To get our feet wet as back-end developers, we’ll be creating a simple PHP class that will:

    * Create a database
    * Connect to a database
    * Display a form with two fields
    * Save the form data in the database * Display the saved data from the database”

    (tags: php)
  • Introduction to the”fundamentals of PHP. We’ll focus on using PHP to access Web services and on turning static HTML pages into dynamic ones by retrieving data from the Web and by showing different content depending on what the user has entered in a form or requested in the URL.

    You won’t come out a professional PHP developer, but you’ll be well on your way to building a small page that uses Web services. You can find a lot of great PHP info on the Web, and most of the time you will end up on itself. But I was asked repeatedly on several hack days and competitions to write this quick introduction article, so here it is.”
