Why learn PHP with CoreDogs?
Learning anything takes time, and time is valuable. Why spend your time at this Web site, when you could be playing in the sun?
This chapter answers three questions:
- Why learn PHP?
- Why learn it at CoreDogs?
- What is the the best way to use CoreDogs to learn PHP?
You should know that:
CoreDogs will not turn you into a professional PHP programmer.
That takes years of learning and practical experience.
CoreDog’s goal is simpler:
Help you learn the core of PHP as it is used in the real world.
CoreDog’s PHP lessons can help you:
- Better understand how the Web really works.
- Install, manage, and even extend WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Moodle, and other PHP systems.
- Write your own PHP programs to, for example, make a large Web site easier to manage.
- Work with PHP programmers more effectively.
- Decide whether PHP programming is something you want to do professionally. CoreDogs can help you get started on this path, if you decide it is right for you.
Let’s start by looking at what PHP does, and why it can help to know it. Then we’ll talk about the CoreDogs Way.
