In this course, you'll explore the basic structure of a web application, and how a web browser interacts with a web server. You'll be introduced to the request/response cycle, including GET/POST/Redirect. You'll also gain an introductory understanding of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), as well as the basic syntax and data structures of the PHP language, variables, logic, iteration, arrays, error handling, and superglobal variables, among other elements. An introduction to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) will allow you to style markup for webpages. Lastly, you'll gain the skills and knowledge to install and use an integrated PHP/MySQL environment like XAMPP or MAMP.

by Gary is taking this course right now, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
I have only done week 1 but am hooked already. I've taken Dr Chuck's Python for Everyone so knew what to expect, and Chuck doesn't disappoint - he seriously cracks me up, but the best thing is he really loves this stuff and his passion shows. I feel smarter just in the first week of content alone.
