Projects to the Next Level
Learning how to use
an MVC framework puts a very powerful tool at your fingertips. Most
commercial websites and web applications written in PHP use some sort
of framework, and the MVC pattern is the most popular type of
framework in use.
The gap between
knowing PHP and using a framework can be huge. This course bridges
that gap. By writing your own framework from scratch, you'll gain an
understanding of just how each component works. Frameworks like
Laravel, Symfony and CodeIgniter all use the MVC pattern, so
understanding how an MVC framework is put together will give you a
strong background to more easily learn frameworks such as these.
I designed this
course to be easily understood by programmers who know PHP but don't
know how to use a framework. Are you putting database code and HTML
in the same PHP script? Want to know why this is a bad idea? Want to
know how to do it better?
Starting with the
basic concepts of MVC frameworks, this course will take you through
all the steps needed to build a complete MVC framework, a piece at a
Beginning with a
single PHP script, each lecture explains what you're going to add to
the code and why, building up the framework step by step. At the end
of this course, you'll have built a complete MVC framework in PHP,
ready to use in your own projects.
working source code at every stage, you'll be able to work alongside the instructor
and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon
finishing the course.

Hi, I'm Dave Hollingworth. I'm an IT trainer and web application developer. I've been programming for over thirty years, and teaching IT since 1999.
I've developed enterprise-level applications on platforms ranging from mainframes to mobiles: from my first web application, a quotes system created for a major insurance company back in 1999 - the first of its type in the sector - to interactive learning management systems for online language learning.
I've taught courses ranging from basic use of email to advanced web application development, both online and in-person. I've been teaching on Udemy since 2012.
I'm passionate about technology, and love teaching it! I believe it's possible to explain even the most complex subjects in a simple, straightforward way that doesn't confuse the student.
I look forward to welcoming you onto one of my courses!
