Category: PHP and front-end web programming

The complete PHP language course for experienced users, who are already familiar with web programming issues and want to start working on a PHP project very fast. This course is not about typical web application elements (forms, integration with databases) – instead, it focuses on specific PHP platform features, language idioms and constructions.

Together with the ZCE-PREP course and a basic knowledge about technologies used in web applications, (XML, SQL, HTML, HTTP) this course is a good preparation for taking the Zend Certified Engineer exam.
