take a look at thenewboston tutorials on youtube...they're great and you can learn a lot from them + they explain a lot
IMO you learn easier while watching vids...
I'll stick to the video tutorial. I'm more a watcher than a reader when it comes to these kind of stuff :P
Now to learn! :O
well I hope the tutorials are good enough...I saw only the other tutorials from them, but I hope you can learn a lot from these...
My brother who works very high up for IBM recently bought me a php book for xmas, he is very talented with PHP so I'm pretty sure this book will be the answer to your prayers
