too fast, does not explain the materials well, its comes across that he has not spent any time polishing the lectures before they're release.

Thank you for this course Edwin, it is a great overview of building a MVC framework. What it has taught me is that I need to learn more on PHP especially the OOP side of things. So I am going back to your course on those. Those who are experienced in PHP & OOP then take this course and you will see how "easy" it is to create your own framework. Cheers, Andre

The course is short and pretty good. Like it says it is only a simple concept on MVC. I learnt a lot about on what is happening behind the scenes in codeigniter. Great Job. Hope to take more of your courses.

Very fast, just unexplained plain reading copy paste code. Please explain what this does instead of just reading out the name of the function. Bad teaching. sorry.

As usual, Edwin created a great course and has given me a better understanding of mvc and how it works!

Instructor gave clear explanations of everything, and the pace was really good. A great course if you've ever wondered what creating your own PHP framework would be like.

Edwin is my absolute favorite instructor on Udemy. This is the first MVC course I have ever been able to complete. It over all is a wonderful course and does not take long to complete. I hope Edwin will take the course farther and maybe create a project using this course or in a separate course.

I liked the technique the instructor used for the development of the framework. The explanations are concise and clear. What made my feedback drop to 3 stars is the fact that the Database part is practically inexistent. I hope the instructor will add this missing part in the future. All in all I recommend this course as a good starting point in the understanding on MVC in PHP.

This is not the first course which i bought it from you Mr. Edwin Dias. I was and I am fully satisfied. Your explanation and lessons are straight, clear and concise without extra useless details. Is a real pleasure for me to learn any programming language from you because you know exactly how to teach us. In my language, we use to say about this kind of people like you that you are blessed with holly grace of teaching people. (sorry for my English if I was unclear).

The instructor explained how mvc components interlink. A small database project would have improved the quality of the course by showing how mvc combine database application compenents.

The course presentation was good enough to relay the basic concepts of the MVC framework in PHp. The examples built off each other, which made it nice to go back through and re-learn concepts.

I'm not an english native speaker so i scared a bit about the accent of the tutor but finally i can adapt to it. Explanations are quite clear, rythm of the training is good until now.

I love Edwin's enthusiasm! He is not difficult to understand or to listen to, and he keeps up a lively pace during his lectures. The only reason I didn't give him the full five stars is that I didn't completely understand a few segments of the course, which admittedly may be my own fault for not being prepared enough in some of the underlying technologies. I will probably retake some of the lectures as I build the PHP for some of my own websites and when the lessons sink in better I may increase my rating to 5-stars. Edwin has many more Udemy courses about web development, and I intend to take more of them.

Edwin clearly explains MVC in easy to understand steps. So far, the best PHP MVC course I've seen on Udemy. Thanks Edwin! I am now going to check out your other courses.

Jonathan5 February 2017

I think this course could have spent more time on the fundamentals of MVC and the example built in the lessons wasn't a real-world one which would have illustrated why MVC is useful.
