Hello there, i am coding mostly on php, i love CI . CI is the best of the best, it gives you the basic tools to create the world again!.
i learn from youtube, there are some video tutorials about PHP and Codeigniter.
If you want to learn fast you have to have a "project target" like for ex. "i want to create a portfolio website" so if you have a target you have to find what you need for it etc Smile.

BUT 1st of all you have to like coding becasue if you dont like you will get bored soon Tongue

@shivambhatele,

For me personally, I've been doing PHP for a very long time. (Prior to tons of free video's and tutorials available online.) I literally purchased a PHP book and read it cover to cover completing all the examples and building all kinds of things ( https://www.amazon.com/PHP-MySQL-Web-Dev...=uuid10-20 - 2nd edition - 2003). Currently, there are many free videos and tutorials that are available to learn PHP. No matter which method you choose the key is to put it to use in the real world. Once you start doing that it will only become a matter of time before you become an expert.

I do however have one recommendation. Frameworks are great and they help you to keep things organized and secured. Learn how to code without a framework first and then add the framework as a compliment to what you do.
Mastering PHP 7 is not a free pdf it is an illegal paid for copy.
