I might love PHP

This week was a very pleasant change of course. PHP is awesome! I really enjoyed the Codecademy lessons, and I’m excited to implement my final project.

I never thought I would care about back-end development. But this week proved me wrong.

Overall, PHP on Codecademy was much more digestible than JavaScript. I felt like I was able to understand all the concepts, which usually doesn’t happen in the lessons we have.

I’ve said before that I thought I’d like front-end development more, I’ve found that PHP really explains the “why” of what’s going on. I thought front-end stuff would be easier to pick up, but PHP was clear and concise.

This class has been hard. I’ve grown a lot in the last couple of weeks and I cannot explain how nice it felt to understand what was happening. I feel like I was carrying a boulder up a mountain and finally was able to stop and see the view.

I’m looking forward to what we have coming up in the next few weeks. While JavaScript was challenging, and the slide show gave me a panic, this is a much nicer process.

God bless PHP. And God bless America.
