About this video

PHP 7 is a popular choice for web-based application development. It is lightweight, no-frills, and powerful. In a nutshell, PHP 7 lets us address the common requirements of current and future web and mobile application development.

We’ll start off by getting the basics right. Once your foundational knowledge is established, we’ll put it to practical use by working on a small example application. Then, we’ll move on to learning advanced programming methodologies such as high performance programming, functional programming, and object-oriented programming. The course is structured to ensure that you’re learning about all the industry-standards along the way.

Midway through, we’ll learn how to interact with a database. Having done that, you’ll be equipped to build even more complex applications.

We are not done yet. This course wouldn’t be complete without us learning how to implement software design patterns, improve web security, and perform testing and debugging.

The goal of this course is make you a PHP 7 developer.

Style and Approach:

This course follows a step-by-step approach taking you through the basics to advanced level, equipping you with the skills to be proficient at developing applications with PHP 7.

This course is a blend of text, videos, code examples, and assessments, all packaged up keeping your journey in mind. The curator of this course has combined some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete package. It includes content from the following Packt products:

Note: This interactive EPUB adheres to the latest specification, and requires that your reader supports video and interactive content. We recommend using Readium with the latest stable version of Google Chrome, or iBooks for OSX.
