Just to clarify, I have a four year degree and am currently working in the field as a web designer. I enrolled in a PHP course at my local college, but due to circumstances within the school itself, the class turned from a classroom setting to an online setting, which is completely against how I learn, I am not good at just teaching myself things from a text book or something like that, I like to be physically taught things so I can bounce questions off a professor or professional. That all said, I have removed myself from the class to save myself the $900 out of pocket, since I can teach myself from a book for free.
I was just curious for those part of this community any resources or advice on ways to go about learning/teaching myself PHP. I appreciate those who have provided feedback, I just wanted to clarify my original statement to avoid further confusion. I know how important an education is, which is why I have been to college, graduated, went back for a second degree in Web Design and Development (Online). I have figured out how I most effectively learn and online is not it. I also know I will not be a professional PHP programmer right off the bat, but I would like a foundation and something I can use in my current work position and build up from there.
I just want to grow as a professional and want to take the appropriate steps in doing so.
