A new service has launched in an effort to help teach PHP to those looking to learn in a different sort of way. The phpschool.io site provides you with a series of exercises that walk you through both the fundamentals of the language and a few more complex topics.
PHP School is a set of ever expanding workshops to teach you basic to advanced concepts in PHP. We launch with one workshop: Learn You PHP. [...] Each exercise increases in difficulty, guiding you through the core concepts of PHP.
Currently the tutorials cover topics like "My First IO", separation of concerns, working with exceptions and handling dependencies. The installation of the lessons is as simple as making a
composer require call and installing the packages and dependencies required by the tool. They're also actively looking for community contributions to add more workshops to the based on the Learn You PHP package currently included. The training was inspired by what NodeSchool provides for the Node.js language.
