  • Gavin Donohue Ireland I wouldn't consider this an 'Introduction to PHP'. It offers some basic PHP functionality. I would have expected an introductory course to be something from the ground up. I was able to follow this because of experience in other programming languages but I feel that a lot of true beginners would struggle and I don't feel in anyway competent in PHP after this. 2015-02-20 01:02:04
