My journey making a social website
Check the DEMO: http://bethro.alwaysdata.net/
- making a big project is really fun and hard to leave
- You get to learn more at about the programming language you use
- you learn some concepts like object oriented programming and algorithms
- You learn how to work with a database
- CRUD operations (create, read, update and delete)
- You will get to work both frontend and backend (full stack)
- You get to solve a problem
- You get to help others too
and there is far more to a big project
I knew nothing about PHP, so I started watching a tutorial about making each component of the site, starting with the above.
I read a lot blogs and articles about PHP
I cloned projects like Kirk social website on GitHub, tested it and looked trough the code to see how they did it.
I downloaded the docs from php.net
and a Month later I was good at PHP.
you should not give up on something without giving a try. you can always do better than what you think you can.
I never thought I would ever build a social website but the end result proved me wrong. So if you have a big project idea on your mind a you think it is too big to try it, well you are preventing your self from having the best project in your life.
