Online Coding

PHP is the language we will be starting to code in.
You can contact us at, +64-6-880-0000.


If you have ever been to a WordPress website, it runs PHP.
Wikipedia runs on PHP.
A lot of Facebook runs on PHP, Facebook also uses a lot of JavaScript.

While Php is an older programming language, over 78% of websites use Php.
PHP allows you to use Symfony.


Symfony is a framework that enables websites to be built much faster, not needing to do all the behind the scenes management of Security, Routes, User Management, Caching.

In learning Symfony you will be learning MVC of how a website talks to its self. OOP creating reusable code.

Symfony also provides software to run the website you are building in a development environment.


All programming is done in an IDE.

This is a program that helps you keep track of all you are doing. All the files, their associated with each other, as well as helping to make sure you do not have mistakes in your code or are missing vital parts needed by your code.

CentOS 8

All students need a Laptop that can be wiped clean and CentOS installed.

The laptop needs to have at least 8 GB of ram and a 250 GB hard drive, and Wifi.

We use CentOS, our preferred flavour of Linux, as over 70% of the internet runs on Linux or some version of it.

It is also open-source, as is Php, as is Symfony, and I have training licenses for Phpstorm, so there is no software cost to this course.



I am teaching Php.

However, students will also learn to use the Command Line Interface.
They will use the CLI to navigate around a Linux File System, run commands move files, do this all without having to click buttons or run other software.

When you learn to use the CLI you master how to program and take control of your computer.

While we do live in Kona, Hawaii

We Home Schooled in New Zealand for 18 years.
We are holding classes in coding with local homeschoolers here in Kona.

We have also been running a self-directed course for YWAMers to learn WordPress.

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. 


The classes will be held at our place.

There is parking by the mailboxes.

The class lasts for one hour and there will be homework each week, from watching videos on related topics to preparing for coding on the day.

I am limiting each class to only four students so we can maximize learning and time together.  The cost is $15.00 per week.

Each student needs a Gmail account so they can come into the provided Google Classroom to see all assignments and materials, parents can also come into this Google Classroom to see work as well.
