Course Overview
(soft music) Hi everyone, my name is Jill Gundersen and welcome to my course PHP Fundamentals. I am a software developer trying to make the internet a better place, one website at a time. PHP is a great beginner programming language for anyone who is wanting to cross over into the coding world. Though easy to learn, it is an extremely robust language and can be used to create large scale websites. You might not be aware that some of the most popular websites are built with PHP. These include Yahoo, Tumblr, Wikipedia, and Facebook. In this course, we are going to start with the basics and work our way to creating a fully interactive website utilizing the PHP language. Some of the major topics that we will cover include PHP syntax, built-in functions, persisting data across web pages and connecting to a database. This course does not require any previous knowledge of a programming language. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn PHP with the PHP Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
