ALEX WEB DEVELOP
You want to be a PHP developer. But what if you are starting from scratch?
Learning PHP is one of the most important steps in becoming a web developer.
But how do you get started, if you know nothing about web development and you have no programming experience?
How much time is going to take before you can write your own PHP applications?
I can definitely relate with you.
In fact, I was asking myself the same questions when I got into web programming.
Just like you, I had no programming experience. And I knew nothing about HTTP, client-server and all that stuff.
It took quite some time for me to learn the basics. Because I did it all on my own, without anybody guiding me.
I understand the challenges that beginners face.
But don’t worry.
You can get started much faster, because you can count on a learning program specifically designed for absolute beginners like you.
You can get started with PHP in just 9 days.
Time is valuable.
That’s why I designed a 9-day program to provide you with the skills you need to start coding in PHP, without overwhelming you with too much information.
Each day of the program focuses on a specific topic, from the very basics of PHP syntax.
All with hands-on exercises to help you learn by doing.
By the end of the 9-day program, you’ll have the confidence and skills to start building your own PHP projects.
Are you ready to start your journey as a PHP developer?
Jump Start is a 9-days program to go from zero to PHP developer.
- The Basics
Starting from the very beginning, you are guided into setting up your work environment, understanding the basic web development concepts (such as front-end vs back-end), and grasping the fundamental PHP features.
No previous coding experience is required.
- Deeper Into PHP
Next, you’ll learn about the three fundamental PHP assets: variables, functions and control structures.
You’ll learn how they work together and how to use them in practice.
- Final Steps
Finally, you will be looking at how user interaction works.
You will see how to let users send data to your scripts, and how to remember returning users by using Sessions.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the required skills to start writing your own PHP scripts.
Students who joined the course say:
“I enrolled to reinforce knowledge of PHP that was learnt 10yrs ago and never used.
Would definitely recommend it to others. Very well written, explained and understandable.
Doesn’t make assumptions and explain all the minor details to ensure nothing is missed.”
Real PHP code examples.
Don’t you hate all-theory courses?
Yes, the theory is important. But as a beginner, you need to practice more than anything.
The course includes working PHP examples that you can replicate and exercise on.
Comments and questions.
In other online courses, you get access to the course content and then you are on your own. But what if you have a doubt or a question?
In Jump Start, you can leave your questions and comments in every lesson.
Me and other students will get back to you with a clarifying answer.
(Example from one of my other courses)
Quizzes to test your progress.
At the end of every chapter, you can take a quiz and make sure you have learned the key concepts.
Quizzes are a fun way to fix into your memory the concepts that you just learned.
All You Need In One Place
Jump Start includes all you need to get started with PHP.
No more need to go from one article or video to the next, always searching for the next topic.
Up To Date
One of the most common problems with programming courses is that they get out of date.
Jump Start is fully-compatible with PHP 8.
I periodically review the lessons to make sure they are always up to date.
Small, Organized Lessons
Long and complex lessons are hard to follow.
The course is organized in small, segmented pieces of information that you can easily assimilate, in a perfectly logical sequence.
So you don’t risk getting overwhelmed.
Not a native speaker? No worries!
All the lessons are written in simple English.
If you can understand these words, then you can understand the whole course too.
Students who joined my other courses say:
“This type of information was very difficult to figure out on my own via research on the web. I’m very happy this course exists, and I wish I found it sooner than I did.
One thing I particularly like about this course is the fact that I’m learning from someone who has done this stuff before. It’s not just theory in a textbook or something I have to piece together on my own.
I’ve always been a proponent of learning from someone who is doing or has done what you want to do, and I feel confident in my skills now.”
“I found the course very useful and I learnt a lot. I particularly liked the step by step explanation of the examples.
I will use the information as a reference for future projects.
Thank you for this course, you have helped me a lot. Keep up the good work.”
“I like the full and clear explanation of the topics and the tips/tricks. The course gave me a clear understanding and even a bit of experience, which further saved my time.”
“I already knew some of the techniques, but I didn’t know exactly how to implement them. The course is easy to follow and well explained.
I would definitely recommend it to other PHP developers.”

Doubts You May Have
“I’m busy right now, later may be better…”
Most people think that they are busier than usual and that they will have more time in the future.
But think about it. Do you have more time today than a year or a week ago?
Now is the best time to get started.
It’s just 9 days to acquire an incredibly valuable skill.
“But I have other priorities….”
If you really had other priorities, then you would not even be here reading these words, am I right?
You are here because you know that you want to be a PHP developer.
Don’t miss this chance.
“Maybe PHP is too difficult for me…”
PHP is too difficult only if you learn it the wrong way.
This course makes the learning process as easy as possible.
There are absolutely no reasons why you shouldn’t be able to learn it.
“Some videos on YouTube let me learn PHP in 1 hour!”
The video is 1-hour long, sure. But will all the concepts stick after the video is over?
You always need to practice to learn. And a 1-hour video doesn’t really help with that.
The 9-days time includes everything, from following the lessons to practice.
