Customer Quote

   I haven't done *any* online courses like this before, so I don't have much fodder for comparison, but I'm really enjoying the class so far. Compared to just buying a book, which is what I normally do, this is a far more engaging way to learn.   

David WolfeAAA Northern California

   Well done. The examples were to the point. Also, you helped us keep an eye on security and performance in php (something all too often overlooked).

   Thanks for making PHP look much easier then what it has.
