You'll learn:

Great course. Covers the basics of PHP and a slight introduction to the applications on web.

Great quick basic intro to PHP.

Basic but informative on beginner level PHP

so far, exactly as expected...Awesome, exactly what I needed as I have been learning bunches of confusing stuff, this course filled in some gaps.

Great crash course! It is a great overview of the most basic things in PHP. It is a good start, but if you want to get into more complicated functions, and how PHP is used in Wordpress or other complex platforms that use PHP, you will want to get a more in depth course. This course is exactly what it says it is, a crash course. It's great for just starting out and will definitely get you reading PHP quick (might take more time to actually jump in and start coding the bigger stuff). Great teacher, great course!

Very easy to follow and I can already tell it's going to be structured nicely. Also, it's the perfect length I didn't need a 20-hour course.

This is a great way to learn the basic syntax of PHP; it's ideal for someone who already knows one or more languages, but needs to be able to read some PHP code and understand the basics to know what's going on. For example, if you're a JavaScript client developer that needs to work on your PHP backend, this is a great place to start. However, this is only the start though; you only go through the basic syntax; it doesn't go into how to build real servers in PHP, such as a login form, a user permission system, connections to the database, templates, securities, scalings, etc. For those tasks, you need more advanced courses, but this is a great start.

seems good so far, bit annoying with running a windows machine and figuring stuff out

It is what I needed, quick intro to PHP so I can hit the ground running. Like the format.

I'm already familiar with the concepts of variables, data types and statements such as if else, while, for, etc I believe the course could just offer a documentation so that we could look these concepts up by ourselves, thus allowing this course to deepen into making something actually usefull in php. Nevertheless if it's your first time learning a programing lenguage, this would be good course to begin with since it is not overwelming. Btw I'll give this course an extra star for the post and get forms .

could you add links to all the download pages?

Great intro course...thanks!
