Introduction

Below are links to the PHP 8 tutorials that I have written. They are collected here for easy reference.

All example code used in the tutorials are available in a GitHub repository for you to clone and follow along with.

Motivation

These tutorials are for you if you are new to programming or if you are familiar with other programming languages and are looking to get to know PHP 8. They are written in a way that assumes you are either a beginner or intermediate developer.

Each tutorial covers a singe topic and is short and to the point. They don't cover less used features of the language, and don't go into to much detail regarding any gotchas or weird quirks.

Example code is small and demonstrates a single principal. They are written so that they can be copied and pasted or entered quickly into an editor without any fuss. Code is meant to be ran from the terminal. A web server or database is not needed to be installed. For those examples that require running the code in a browser the internal web server provided by PHP 8 is used.

These tutorials are not meant to replace the manual.
