    codecademy recently started an interactive php course for beginners. http://www.codecademy.com/en/tracks/php looks good so far. i was not sure if it fit's the "getting started" section of the forums, but maybe it's an interesting hint some people. maybe someone has links to add.

    I thought I'd start this topic because I seem to be recommending certain courses to people repeatedly, so why not share it with the PW community. The topic can be a review or overview of any IT or non IT-related courses you're doing or have done. I'll start off with a course on teaching you how to learn. https://www.coursera.org/learn/learning-how-to-learn I'm halfway through this course and I can already see huge improvements in the way I'm learning and also my approach to learning. I wished I've taken this course when I was a student! The course can be taken free, and all it takes is a couple of hours of your time. If you have kids that are in school, I think this should be compulsory viewing for all children in academia. If you're into self-improvement or learning, then I can't recommend this course highly enough.

    I am desperate to learn how to you ProcessWire to it's fullest potential, and while the documentation is great and always appreciated, I simply can't follow along because it gets way too technical without really showing how applicable and versatile it can be. Then again, I'm almost a moderate understanding of PHP and no experience with APIs or programming JavaScript—so it's probably leagues ahead of where I am at the moment. That said, I learn best by watching and the doing. Think Codecademy or FreeCodeCamp. I was wonder if there are any video tutorials or walk-through lessons to give me a greater understanding of ProcessWire and how to utilize it effectively. For some background, I'm great with WordPress and I'm great with writing websites by hand with Notepad only. The biggest hurdles I have with PW is the phrasing is so far left of WP at times that it's a massive hurdle for me to get over. Like in WP, themes, templates, etc are totally different things. And as someone who builds WP sites for a living, it gets hard to kill those old preconceived meanings. I want to start building out PW sites for numerous reasons. For one, most of my clients they would benefit from it vs the Bloated Beast. Two, it would allow me to differentiate me in a market saturated by WP devs. I know I have a long ways to go until I reach that point of considering myself a "PW dev", but I am desperate for resources to help me wrap my head around it. I've built my own website in PW but TBH it only handles some of the data while most of the text has been hard-coded into the PHP template files because I couldn't get my my head around the "best practice" of structuring the data. Anyway, enough rambling, I'm just hoping those of you in the community can point me to easily-digestible sources out there that can help move me along so I can actually benefit from using the platform. Thank you!

    Hi! I've been making my first modules and I've created three so far to help me learn. I would love so feedback or pull requests for improvements as I hope to write a tutorial about my work soon. In particular the third modules isn't very finished. git: https://github.com/benbyford/PW-starter-modules/ HelloUserYouSaved - adds message {your user name, page saved} in admin when a page is saved. This module shows how to implement a basic module, get and use variables, create a message in the admin RedirectAdminPages - redirect specific user role to a custom page set in the module config. This module shows how to implement module configuration, using variables saved in the admin, redirecting a user using session->redirect() HotSwapUser - Swap user on the fly in the admin or frontend of your site This module shows how users can be used in a module how to set a user permission how to install / uninstall something within your module how to create a function that can be output in the frontend of your site.
