Build you Own Custom Dynamic Blog.

This 8 Section Tutorial is over 17 hours in length and consists of 68 sections on building a Custom Dynamic Blog application. Recorded in High Definition format with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720. It is recorded with the beginner in mind as Mike walks you step-by-step through building your dynamic Blog application.

This lesson series covers all the fundamentals of building a CMS system and many of the advanced techniques that are used when developing customer sites. You will learn how developers use PHP and MySQL to build dynamic websites that are fast, robust and SEO friendly for their customer deployments.

A complete section listing of the topics covered and a brief description of each section is listed below.

Once the series is completed you will have a fully functional Blog application that can be deployed to your web host for posting your blog entires to. And the real beauty is, you will have written it, from scratch, and fully understand how to expand and maintain it. You will no longer be at the mercy of an out-of-the-box-application that does not perform as you expect it too.

The presentation are included in PDF format so that you can follow along with the discussions and make notes on the slides as we work through the training. I also include all the exercise files for each Section.
