Teaching PHP & Web Development


Comments are closed.

I've just started teaching my brother web development so this talk couldn't have come at a better time. Larry gave a pretty good roadmap on how to teach and brought up ideas I hadn't even considered (such as constraints dictating how and what you teach). Larry was open and forthcoming about his style of teaching.

I have been using Larry Ullman books since 2003. The QuickStart and QuickPro book formats teach me quickly. I use them for my students textbooks when I teach at CCV (Community College of Vermont). I have researched other text books - but Larry's examples are the best and he keeps an updated errata page for students using older texts.

It was a treat to have him be my live teacher! He shared how he taught, and how he refined his textbooks.

Definitely one of the highlights of the conference for me!
