In The 24 Hour PHP Tutorial I will guide you through the first steps to get you up and running with programming in PHP. We focus on the most fundamental features of PHP: the bits you will actually use.
Over the course of the first six sessions you will read, follow along, and also try out the code for yourself. Then in the later sessions you will work on short exercises at the end of each session. These exercises will help you to put your learning into context.
Later in the book there is a basic project to stretch your skills, and a ‘Next Steps’ session to give you some pointers about how to continue your learning.
We are focussed on writing useful code so you can refer back to this book in the future to copy and use whatever you want, and I will show you core techniques and strategies that will be invaluable as you gain more experience.
