I've worked with several people in the past, but only as a visual designer. I'm looking to move into the more complex side of web development and I've noticed that I learn a lot better when I'm taking lessons from actual people - it also helps skip all the extremely basic and unnecessary parts that I can pick up in a matter of minutes.
Ideally I'm looking for someone to teach me a decent amount of PHP and about working with databases such as MySQL. Do such people exist? I learned XHTML and CSS2 through a textbook and research and looked through web source code to figure out HTML5 and CSS3. However, I doubt it would be that easy for back-end languages, and if it was it would probably take a long time.
If anyone could help me out, it would be appreciated!
