9.3/10 (Our Score)
Product is rated as #1 in category PHP

In this course, we’ll look at the object oriented patterns available in PHP. You’ll learn how to connect to a MySQL using the Portable Data Objects (PDO) library and issue SQL commands in the the PHP language. We’ll also look at how PHP uses cookies and manages session data. You’ll learn how PHP avoids double posting data, how flash messages are implemented, and how to use a session to log in users in web applications. We’ll then build the first ‘complete’ application that has multiple screens to Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) our data. This brings all the previous concepts together and will form the basis for all later web applications. The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.

    It is a very good course, but at times a bit difficult, since it includes all types of languages such as HTTP, CSS, PHP and SQL. Thank for the TA’s invaluable help to get over the most difficult hurdles.

    The 3 chapters I read in book (Missing Link) were fabulous. Excited to read more. I picked up a bunch of very helpful points following Dr CSev. However, sometimes talking over my head and referenced “(stuff we learned earlier).” I had not taken other courses in specialization but it seemed like I was missing videos. I had to stop and do research to find out what he’s talking about on numerous topics. (e.g. htmlentities, SQL, location of sample code, how placeholders avoid injection, etc). Often he talked too fast and glossed over points, didn’t explain how to deploy code or what happens after success coding. “And off you go” doesn’t help the newbie like me. I often didn’t know how to use/implement the lesson. Even if it was mentioned earlier, the purpose/use should be repeated/demonstrated again when done. Also, a newbie could use hard to miss instructions on how to take the course, where/when to download resources, etc. I was bouncing around trying to figure out how the whole thing worked.

    The assignments were very difficult and required a lot of outside resources to be used. If I had a question specific to an assignment I couldn’t ask it in the discussion forums because no code is allowed in there. It took me probably 2 or 3 times longer than it should have been to completed this course. On a positive note, Dr. Chuck is a great and passionate teacher.

    I appreciated this course. It was simple and succinct. I’m using the topics learned as a basis for more learning. Sadly, there are no courses on Advanced PHP.

    This course tied up the first two courses of this specialization very beautifully. I went from knowing nothing in web development to creating my own application. I would highly recommend everyone to take this full specialization and thanks to University of Michigan.

    Really good and clear lectures with fun and challenging assignments. This course is especially good if you followed the previous ones within the specialization. The only thing I’m missing would be more advanced stuff or at least a follow up, more challenginig course (e.g. learning about different frameworks, security, more advanced PHP, a capstone project, etc.)

    The course is highly useful, yet the assignment descriptions and Staff replies on forums need better wording and spelling. There were typos, misleading semantics, and grammatically incorrect statements which make material comprehension to feel more difficult.

    The best course in the sequence. Chuck is a fun and entertaining instructor, he’ll walk you through the history of the internet (and interview some key people) and teach you the fundamentals of back end development. Yeah the technology used is becoming dated, things like PHP, LAMP stack, and Bootstrap 3 tend to power legacy code not newer projects. But the fundamentals don’t change, and this serves as a good basis for more library based frameworks that do a lot of the work for you. By the end of the course, you’ll learn three things: 1) Back end fundamentals and history, 2) How to build a CRUD App using PHP / mySQL, and 3) E’s Jammy Jams Make sure you know HTML and CSS, and the PHP and SQL introduced in the previous courses, before commencing with this one. Mastering this course is the most important in the specialization, the next one with Jquery and JSON is just extra icing on the cake, but this CRUD app stuff is most crucial and relevant. Assignments are marked with an auto grader and are peer reviewed.

    This course really helped me fill in all the gaps that being a self taught developer left. Can’t wait to continue with others.
