About this course

This is episode 2 of our Epic PHP series. Find episode 1 here.

In this episode, we're learning all about forms, form submissions, how this translates the the HTTP Request/Response world, and saving files to the disk. This is a huge step forward, and all in under 30 minutes! You'll learn:

  • How to access submitted form data
  • What the HTTP method is for a request (and how to read it)
  • How to save files
  • How to redirect a user
  • What request and response "headers" are
  • Better code organization with functions.

This will get you ready for episode 3... which is all about databases!

Hi if I can suggets something in next episode, it would be nice if you will mention, something about submiting forms with arrays. Like multiselect or example input multiple variables, like name=first[name], name=second[name] added by JS/JQuery and process them in PHP. Because there are lots of exmaples of sample with submiting in single inputs. I really like you courses, keep the course, thx :) BR

Do you plan to make an lessons on Doctrine 2(a project which uses pagination) ? How do you use it from plain PHP. Thank you !

Hi Lucas!

We are thinking about a Doctrine2 tutorial but have nothing concretely planned in the short-term. It *is* one of the most-requested screencasts (if you click the "Tell Us What You Think" button on the bottom left of this page, you'll see), so I think it's a good idea!
