Course Description

Working with PHP, you have the freedom to choose between many databases. MySQL, ODBC, SQLite, Oracle, etc. – you name it. Let's say, you decide to go down with MySQL, and for some reason, you need to move to a different database (let's say, SQLite). That means you'd need to go through your application line by line until it's compatible with SQLite. That doesn't sound sexy at all, does it? Take this PDO tutorial and solve such an issue within minutes!

Why would you need a PDO tutorial?

PDO, which stands for PHP data objects, is a centralized code. When you have a PDO database, you can change it at any time to any database that suits your needs better. What you'll need to do is simply change its connection type. That's an impressive time-saver. Another golden feature of this PDO tutorial is that you should find it extremely easy to learn PDO. Especially when you already have basic PHP knowledge.

Those who know how to use PDO go as far as stating that compared to it, MySQL is archaic. One of the main advantages that programmers love about PDO is that it has a unified interface that ensures accessing many different databases. Also, advanced PHP users point out another great feature – that is PDO abstracting basic operations, so you don't have to repeat them a million times. And that's only one of the multiple functions that help you make routine processes automated. But, as I said, you don't need to be an advanced PHP user to enroll this PDO tutorial.

What's the agenda of this course?

So, in this PDO tutorial, you will learn the bread & butter of the PDO database. In my opinion, one project would not show all the methods effectively to deal with CRUD operations. That's why I've planned to deal with individual concepts one by one from the ground up to help you build an understanding of how to use PDO in your application.

After the introductory part, this course extends into three main sections.

  • Section 2 of this PHP PDO tutorial will make you familiar with the essential building blocks of PDO. Here, you'll learn how to connect databases and execute simple database queries. We'll spend some time on finding out important things about fetching, counting rows. I'll also introduce you to general errors of SQL as well as PDO.
  • Section 3 deals with prepaired statements. You'll be working out how to create forms, how to use named parameters, question mark, passing arrays, and what you need to know about binding columns in this context.
  • In Section 4, you'll already work with transactions – initiating and completing a transaction, checking for errors, fetching results, etc.
  • And there's a small bonus lecture for you from my personal experience working as a developer and web designer for many years already.

Use your time effectively!

Use your coding and learning time effectively. Learn the essentials of PDO in this PHP PDO tutorial which is under 3 hours long, and then save loads of time in your work when you know how to use PDO. Because time is of great value today, so use it wisely!
