I just finished a four day live training session on PHP. I have to say – our instructor was very informative and patient. I learned quite a bit about PHP, object oriented programming, and most importantly – security. If you are ever looking for some PHP training, definitely consider PHP Architect training.
My online PHP training is now complete. I feel like I learned quite a bit and am ready to start tackling some exciting projects I have in my queue. Not only did I learn about some good practices, I also finally made time to look at some development environments. After some comparisons, I have choosen to play around with Komodo IDE Active State also offers a free editor called Komodo Edit if you are interested in a simple bare bones editor. If you are at all curious about Komodo IDE, be sure and check out the free Discover Komodo IDE 4.webcast.
What do I like about it?
- Syntax checking
- Clean interface
- Plays nice with subversion
Today was my first day of PHP Training offered by PHP Architect. I am looking forward to having some formal training so I can improve on what I already know and use on a daily basis. I am hoping that by the end of this training session which will be completed by the end of February that I will be ready to tackle some big projects I have been thinking about for awhile. I will update everyone on how it is going in the next few weeks. As for the Super Bowl last night…well – at least we still have the possibility of the 2016 Olympic bid.
I have been looking for good Mac (not MAC) OS and UNIX training opportunities and think I finally came up with the missing piece, Big Nerd Ranch. Over the years, I have looked for good training for Mac OS X/Mac OS X Server, Apache, PHP, and other web technologies, but have often come up empty handed or less than satisfied. So if you are looking for some decent training, here is what I would recommend:
- Hands on training for Mac OS client or Mac OS X Server and want to get certified: http://training.apple.com/
- Hands on training for UNIX or advanced Mac OS X:http://www.bignerdranch.com/
- Web based UNIX/Linux training: http://oreilly.useractive.com/courses/sysadmin.php3
- Web tutorials on HTML, XML, SOAP, XSL, SQL, etc: W3Schools (where I learned XTHML and CSS)
