Recommend Me Some Tutorials

Friends, Mates, Buddies & Pals,

I don’t want to google or youtube because there’s a lot of bad tutorials rampaging the net.
And so, how-about you recommending me some text & video tutorials on:

CURL
Hashing

I really need to learn password hashing. Encrypting & decrypting.
And web scraping.

:thumbsup:

Where did you learn these subjects from ? What is your source ?
I can checkout your recommendations after I wake-up and so take your time searching for the right ones to recommend to me. No rush. :wink:
And, most of all: THANKS!

I rely heavily on the PHP documentation, my localhost server, my text editor, and my browsers.

I read the docs, write the code, test the code, tweak the code, read more docs, tweak the code some more, test again. ad infinitum

In other words, hands-on experience.

Mmm. I reckon you’re learning things the hard way if you’re a beginner and start learning a topic from php.net manual instead of a third party site that runs real tutorials for beginners. That php.net is not really a tutorial site but a reference guide but I guess that is enough for you since you’re not a beginner like me.
Thanks for disclosing how you do things that best suits your interest.

PS - If you ever come across a good link for a beginner like me then drop this thread a line.

Thanks!

php.net is a great site that explain all, just need to think a bit :smiley:

I tried learning from that but that is not a proper tutorial for beginners. It is more of a reference guide for intermediate or advanced programmers. Also, other programmers have advised me against it. They suggest tutorialspoint.com and phptherightway.com.
Currently, I’m using the former.
Originally, I learnt a little php from tizag.org.

Start from php basics: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfdtiltiRHWHjTPiFDRdTOPtSyYfz3iLW

Read www.phptherightway.com

Set up your own project and work on it, that is the most efficient way to learn.

Then learn from php manual.

Thank You!
