During my job search, I had the opportunity to interview for a backend engineering position that uses PHP. Most of my experience with backend languages is in Python and NodeJS, so I decided to sign up for the Codecademy PHP course to learn the basics of PHP. I have been learning this language for the last few days and I’m about halfway through the course.
I created a Magic 8 Ball program written in PHP which prompts the user to input a yes or no question and gives the user an answer. I’m new to PHP and this was a fun activity from Codecademy to practice conditional statements. I added a bit of my own flare to the program, but for the most part, it is a classic Magic 8 Ball program.
I enjoyed this activity and decided to save it as a reminder of my first week learning PHP. I hope to return to this repository in the future when I am more experienced with PHP to remind myself how far I’ve come. As for now, I’m enjoying learning this new language and looking forward to growing my skills in backend engineering.
