Having my finals tomorrow, how can I learn PHP today when I really don't wanna because I hate PHP so far?

    What is the content? Basics, database, auth?
    1. look through your stuff
    2. Questions? Look at the php docs
    3. More questions? Stackoverflow is your friend.

    @stop I'm just so unmotivated and kinda scared. I'm looking through all the projects, but it's overwhelming, but it's "only" basic stuff like file processing and html formulares with sql connection.

    Pff. Just look at the funcs and SQL and you will make it. If the teacher wants to deduct points, because you used an more secure method to hash passwords, dont give in.

    Sure I will make it but not in the time we have.
    Password hashing isn't relevant ;)

    I don't want to blame others, but everyone in my class hates the teacher and PHP, but in the end it doesn't matter. Have to teach it myself ..
    Wish me luck or whatever helps

    I don't know how one can learn programming language overnight, but I'd give you other advice; stop hating on it and be more open toward all technologies. They're there to make your life eaiser, if you feel uncomftorable with it thats probably because you don't have enough understanding about it. Also don't give up, all this was made by humans (except for lisp ๐Ÿ˜…).. Good luck though!

    Be careful with the subjects you learn. You might end up having to use them some time.

    If you know C, you can get PHP in an hour. Just ignore strict typing, prototyping, and defining return types. Then skim PHP.net to get familiar with the built in functions.

    Any reason to hate php? Or just another one of those things people do nowadays?
