Learn PHP in 15 minutes

PHP is one of the most useful languages to know and is used everywhere you look online. In this tutorial, I start from the beginning and show you how to start writing PHP scripts.

The video covers the software you need to get started, data types, outputting data, variables, concatenating strings, operators, if statements, HTML forms, arrays and loops.

Does it even make sense to learn learn PHP nowadays, or is it better to learn JavaScript instead?

Sergio Sanchez says:

I think most get the idea that we learn php in 15 minutes to become experts but It would really be better to say learn php during 15 minutes, … Cause people who are lazy come here thinking they´ll learn a lot and others just come to see this shitty video and remember all those past years suffering with code! Honestly, any title that it called such as 15 minutes, 2 months, and so on, makes anyone puke!

Thanks so much! This was really straight to the point. I think it helps if someone has a little bit of basic idea of programming behind them (like minimum basics) but even not I don’t think this would be to difficult to get the basic idea. Great job!
