"It is not often I come out of a programming class knowing I can immediately put the language to use. After taking the PHP programming course I will begin using the language immediately with the confidence that I understand what is going on."

"The instructor had a great grasp of the language, his years of industry experience really came through in the examples and tips. Although I came into the class with a lot of PHP knowledge, I am leaving it with a much more solid understanding of the fundamentals, and have gained some valuable techniques that I plan to utilize at once. I consider it time well spent."

"I really enjoyed the course! It helped me solidify my understanding of PHP. With this course I feel strongly that I can move from 'hack' status to a real programmer. I enjoyed the instructor's presentation and handling of the questions."
