Well, it has taken me 5 months to decide but I’m giving the O’Reilly school of technology a try.
O’Reilly offers some great options for continuing education credits and they also have certificate programs. While I don’t have the time (or money) to invest in a masters program at a traditional university, O’Reilly’s courses seem like a great way to improve my skills.
My first class is called “Introduction to PHP”. While I have a working knowledge of PHP I’m excited to approach the topic in a structured classroom/lab environment.
This course is the first out of four towards the PHP/SQL programming certificate. Getting a better handle on PHP and SQL programming will go a long way to helping me build solutions at work. I also have a few pet projects that should be much easier with ‘formal’ training.

Wish me luck!
