This tutorial only scratched the surface of PHP — there are many more things to learn. I’ve tried to collect some of the best resources below, please leave a comment with more relevant links.

  • PHP Manual The definitive guide to all things PHP. The annotated version with user comments is a rich source of information and tips about PHP. It even has a tutorial — use it!

  • Google Directory Here you will find tons of links to other places online with information about PHP.

  3. Nigel A. Gunn:

    Great tutorial. Very useful.
    If only I could print it as one document instead of several pages surrounded by “rubbish”.

  4. Martin Geisler:

    Yeah, you’re right about the rubbish… the pages are made with WordPress and I haven’t bothered to figure out how one can make a combined page (or if it is possible at all?).

    Copy-paste into any word processor could be an okay solution for now…
