About the Book
This book or coding bootcamp, whatever you want to call it, is designed for absolute beginners who have not coded before.
However, if you plan to be a web developer, and want to learn a good dynamic programming language, then this book is for you.
PHP 8 is custom-made for you to build from simple to complex web application.
It is equivalent to an intensive, completed PHP 8 bootcamp for three months, designed for Absolute Beginners.
PHP developers could enhance the coding skill by following a set of rules.
This book will give you enough PHP code to practice, so that you can learn all the basic and advanced function and the language references.
All you need to do is code everyday for a few hours using this guide. After two months, you will find, programming in PHP 8 is much easier than before.
At the end of the book you will also find a project that will help you to build a dynamic PHP Framework.
If you are an absolute beginner, then the first few sections may not look very friendly; in fact, you would have a strange feeling, such as, I don’t understand anything, or programming is not for me.
My advice is, take your time.
Here is the real difference with the coding bootcamp you usually attend. They always force you to learn something in a stipulated time, say, two months, or three months.
After that, what happens? Sixty percent of the participants just drop out. They cannot take that pressure.
You have a freedom to take your time, here.
Code everyday, take your rime, and see the difference. Note down your progress. Although it is designed for two months, still you can take three, or four months to complete the whole book.
Try to understand the concepts, and be aware of your purpose – why you are learning PHP?
To build a web application, isn’t it? Then, why don’t you try to build a website of your own, using PHP code given here, and try to make it more dynamic?
This is your first challenge: create a small dynamic website after fifteen days, and pass data from one page to another page.
Enough talking. Let us see some more actions.
