This course teaches PHP Data Objects (PDO), one of the available API for connecting to databases within PHP. PDO is an object oriented extension which was introduced with PHP 5.1, taking advantage of several features introduced into PHP at that time.

In this step by step course both beginners and experienced web developers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the modern PDO extension and how it can be used to create scalable database driven application.

This PHP with PDO course uses MySQL database to teach PDO concept and finally you learn how to build a basic task list using the concepts that has been taught in the course.

My Approach

In this course I use simple examples that can be easily understood to illustrate concepts and build upon it.

"This was perfect for my skill level as an advanced beginner to lower intermediate PHP developer. Terry wastes no time, and the whole course is packed with great information.

Thanks Terry for you contribution . Terry provides the concise and valuable coding necessary to get ahead with PHP PDO. I would have liked some extra lessons that include web pages where data is written to Oracle and SQL Server databases as well just to have a commercial feel for some of the popular issues faced with PHP PDO among the major relational database players.

-Vichet Kim

Great course. Very cutting edge. Instructors does a great job of teaching PDO. The example use of PDO is really good, with jquery and ajax functions that are very slick. Would recommend to anyone who isn't a complete novice (the code usage is advanced and the instructor quite rightly doesn't waste time teaching basic php and jquery as part of this course ). The instructor always responds to questions very quickly which is is nice too.

-Robert Wilby

This course has been instrumental in helping me to learn the basics of PHP. Till now, some of the courses I've purchased have been outdated and used deprecated functionality. Others paid no attention to best practices.

This course was a breath of fresh air. The material is current, the instructor is responsive, and I've been able to use the knowledge from this course to make money.

If you truly want to understand what goes into creating AJAX/JQuery/PHP based task list functionality, this course is worth every penny. I highly recommend it.

-Ken Corley

I had wanted to learn PDO and prepared statements with PDO for a while now, but couldn't find anything that was targeted for the beginner. Every online tutorial seemed to just jump into it, expecting you to already understand what PDO was as it was trying to teach you PDO.

This course was perfect, and taught and explains everything very clearly, step by step, assuming you have 0 knowledge of PDO. It's a short course, but absolutely worth it.

-Adam Shapiro

Great course! Really enjoyed the exposure to PDO - lectures are easy to follow and well explained. Thank you
