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!
