In this course I will teach you from the ground floor how to build an application in PHP’s fastest full-scale framework; PhalconPHP. Controllers, Views, Routes, Templates, Models/Relationships/ORM; All covered.
Each section is broken down for you to follow along with and write code as I do. After learning as you go, we’ll create a project based on what you’ve learned.
We will make changes to the Bootstrap through each step in this follow-along series so you know exactly what’s going on. This course is geared towards the medium to advanced skilled developer who have a well rounded knowledge of PHP and Object Oriented Design.
This course should take you around 2-3 weeks to complete, but you may need to come back a few times in order to absorb all the material. You should consider taking this course if you are interested in advanced development and bleeding-edge technology that will dominate PHP.

Summary of What You’ve Learned
My name is Jesse.
I was born in Michigan, but I’ve been living in Central Florida the past 10 years.
I’ve been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to “View Source” to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn’t in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I’m doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API’s, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simple way so you don’t need wrestle with all the questions I had!
