    Us

    Usually when building a project you will have components that users will directly interact with; this are called views or the presentation and you will also have components that are behind the scene to control user interaction this are the programming logic. It’s always a good practice to separate programming logic from presentation whenever possible.

  • Control Structures and Conditional Logic

    In this lecture you will learn how to control program execution using selection statements. Selection statements allow programmers to determine which action to take when there are more than one course of action. Let say you’re writing a script to compute student's grade, you will need a way to determine which students scored A grades or B grades or F grades.

    In these lessons you will learn and understand PHP selection statements in great details. We have covered the different types of if statement in the last lecture, now we move on to switch statement and you will also learn to create a very simple random number guessing game.

    In previous lessons we have covered PHP Selection statements in great details. In this lecture you will learn about some of the common selection statement errors to avoid.

    In this lecture you'll learn about 3 very special functions in PHP namely is_callable(), call_user_func() and call_user_func_array(); though you might not exactly see their benefit at the moment but if you stay on devscreencast long enough, you will get to see the usefulness and importance of these functions.

    In this lecture you'll learn about recursive "a function that calls itself" function in PHP and understand the usage.

    In this lecture I will walk you through the process of Setting up Name-based VirtualHost on Windows 

    In this lecture I will wake you through the process of Setting up VirtualHost on Mac

    In this lecture you'll learn how to process web form using HTTP POST and GET methods and PHP superglobals $_GET and $_POST variables to collect form-data.
