Stefan Mischook's Blog:
Why Learn PHP and Why Books/Videos are Hard
April 17, 2007 @ 09:12:00

On the KillerPHP.com blog, there's two new posts from Stefan Mischook following along the same sort of path - people being introduced to PHP, whether it be by books or videos.

In the first post, he explains (via a video) why he started the KillerPHP website and some of his thoughts on PHP - including his recommendation that every web designer/developer out there learn it.

In his second post, he tackles the other topic - why PHP books are difficult for people who aren't already programmers.

I've read 20+ books on PHP and have watched many videos. One thing that I found consistent about all of them was how they were not 'friendly' to non-nerd types. Why? Probably because (most of the time,) only hardcore code-monkeys seem to be writing these books.

To that effect, he's created his video series to help the non-developers of the world learn this great language in a simple, easy to follow fashion.
