After seeing a free tut on youtube i subscribed the course and jeez, i don't even need goals to get or stay motivated cause i have the instructor: Edwin Diaz, his way of teaching is friggin awesome (and fun) and easy listening! To be honest its keeping me away from bed xD.. I really really love the course. If i need to describe the course from my personal view, one word: Epic! Really looking forward for the stuff that will be added in the future! Great job and thumbs up! Greetings from a Dutchy
Best PHP course************

After finishing this course I was ready to make my own social networking site and that's amazing isn't it? Another great part of this course is its instructor, who helps you with every issue you have in short time. I've have already done many internet courses, but this is definetly the best one.

I have just finished this course and I feel like my PHP knowledge has sky rocketed.The instructor, Edwin, comes across as a human and not a robot, just like anyone he makes mistakes during the course and then makes error finding fun.I will definitely be looking at future courses from Edwin.I would love to see a Symphony course "Nudge Nudge Hint Hint"Thank for the great course Edwin

Lessons plan is not bad, however it is time consuming education, in long time It gives less information with not well prepared videos. It always give adwords of other courses.

The lectures are very cool and go into deep of the topics. A great course I have finished successfully. I have learned a lot of things about PHP. Now it's time to move forward. Thank you, Edwin, for making a great course.

It is really awesome.learn many things in easiest way.hope all this knowledge will help me to grow professionally.Edwin taught really in good and easiest way.Thanks

I came to this course as a front end developer, and now I'm able to build awesome lightweight CMS's for my clients! This course is great for someone who learns by doing. You can either go along video for video or you can do things on your own and check them with the videos. Either way I definitely recommend this course.

Best course I have done on Udemy so far, very informative and very enthusiastic and engaging Lecturer. I hope to do more of Edwin's courses very soon!

This course provided far more than I anticipated. It works with a real application and makes many, many improvements to it. It doesn't start out with the ubiquitous and terribly simplistic "Hello World" example. We get into the heart of a CMS application immediately and "take off" from there.It is also instructional to see the added features provided by scripting, javascript, and bootstrap. Even those this is not a course in that coding, the instructor wets one's appetite to take additional courses.The only negative I had during the first 205 lectures was in the introduction of the scripting section. Certainly, a lecture had to be missing. I had to dig into the Q&A to see how to create and then add the scripts.js file to the code.The instructor displays an unusual high level of interest in the students. He is not aloof like some of the instructors for Udemy courses.I have started several Udemy courses, but this is the first one I plan to finish to the very, very end (343 lectures) and probably want for more.

Edwin php course is great ,but in my experience since I passed 30 present of this course ,he is so fast in copy and pasting content, so it makes me so confuse and also he has to ,he must to add the content source for us to download CMS project in some parts I need more explanations because as u learn about functions in php , in CMS u work with them as a true project , although whenever I ask about my problems he and his team are there for me and I really appreciate about that. sorry for about my English actually it is my third language .

Taught me amazing skills and features that are used in real life scenarios. A lot of varied and very useful content was taught

Thanks Edwin, for this class and for your support ! was perfect to discover the coding world ! i'll definitely take one of your other courses !Best,

I like Edwin and his approach to teaching us. Its good that we make mistakes. I was getting angry sometimes with debugging all the time but I learned that making and fixing errors is essential for coding and understanding the whole concept. Thank you for this great course.

Great course, which from I have learned a lot about PHP and good practises of writing code. Also the instuctor is very kind and have nice voice. I really recommend this course for everyone for sure to beginners who want to start the programming journey. Now I'm going to start the PHP OOP course from Edvin and I'm quite sure that will be the good choice to extend my knowledge about programing in PHP and maybe the other languages.Greetings, Andrew.
