New York, NY (PRWEB) September 2, 2010
Infinite Skills, an established provider of eLearning content and video-based training, is now offering a project-based tutorial course in PHP and MySQL development. Unlike other training regimens that spend excessive time on history and background information, this hands-on series allows viewers to learn these technologies more naturally, by actually building a custom software project and seeing the process in action. Users are able to learn PHP scripting as it applies to building a real web application in a minimal amount of time. Written and presented by professional instructor Robert J. Tucker, the video series includes 155 separate training lessons totaling over ten full hours of instruction. Detailed working files also accompany the training and allow users to follow along with the instructor in real time. To show the quality of the training and allow users to appreciate the easy to follow format of these training videos, Infinite Skills has made the first three chapters viewable online with no obligation to purchase or register.
This PHP - MySQL Training series offers a unique and effective way to learn real skills in less time than traditional methods. Because definitions and extensions are learned within context, as they are actively being put into use, viewers are able to understand how PHP scripting really works without needing to obsessively study theory or tangentially related material. This immersion-based training technique has been proven time and time again, as viewers gain confidence and create real code long before those relying on textbooks alone know how to get started. As more people become interested in creating web applications and related technologies, this refreshing approach lowers the barriers to entry by providing practical tips that beginners need to know.
As a general purpose scripting language, PHP has quickly become a popular and powerful way to accomplish any number of development tasks. Because it is regularly updated by the PHP group and most importantly free, it is embraced by coders from a number of disciplines as an effective tool for creating apps for use online and in database-dependent environments. Web-ready and optimized for server-side use, PHP is responsible for elements on such popular sites as Facebook and Wikipedia, yet flexible enough that it can be used for individual projects and tasks.
This PHP training video course starts with an introduction to the software tools and platforms users need to know before they begin their project. After setting up XAMPP, bluefish, and PHP Snippets, viewers learn how to create their first PHP page and connect to a MySQL database. The tutorials then look at how MySQL fundamentally works, showing users how to create and manipulate tables as well as work with data in a way that is both efficient and secure. As the lessons evolve, users learn to work with template pages, functions, passwords, cookies, email and more.
The Learning Microsoft PHP - MySQL Training can now be ordered from the Infinite Skills site on DVD or as a direct download. A full listing of all lessons included and several free demos are available on the PHP - MySQL tutorial page:
