You're welcome chief. It's either you sacrifice that 1st installment to chase your dreams or you continue with the mediocre training you're getting there. This depends on your financial capacity though.

I think you can study java, php first. I think you need to go to college or courses will study programming lnguages. I am not web developer but my work related to web design and app developing. I cooperate with one of the custom software developing company EffectiveSoft

The good:
- You're learning something, at least you're not of the lazy

The bad:
- it's Java bruv, something you should never start programming with.
- U didn't learn Computer Science basics, at least from your words
- Design patterns are used to describe solutions, not to find them.

The Evil:

I assure you will feel more comfortable and confident starting from the basics. Programming is just a tip of nasty iceberg.


You're just being bred in order to get your first job, wanna stand out? Start from the foundation.

i need help with this code

I have a form which i collect the input using a post method

[i<form method="post" autocomplete="on" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<div class="form-group">

<label for="name" class="mr-sm-2" id="tag"></label>
<select class="form-control" id="categoryname" name="category">
<option value="">---SELECT CATEGORY---</option>
<?php
$sql = "SELECT * FROM category";
$res = mysqli_query($connection, $sql);
while ($r = mysqli_fetch_assoc($res)) {
?>
<option value="<?php echo $r['id']; ?>"><?php echo $r['categoryname']; ?></option>
<?php } ?>
</select>

<label for="name" class="mr-sm-2" id="tag"></label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="title" placeholder="Title" name="title" required>

<label for="content" class="mr-sm-2" id="tag"></label>
<textarea class="form-control" rows="10" id="content" placeholder="content" name="content" required></textarea>

<label for="pic" class="mr-sm-2" id="tag">Profile Picture</label>
<input type="file" class="form-control" name="pic" id="pic" placeholder="Picture">
<br>

<button class="btn btn-info" type="submit">post</button>
</div>
</form>][/i]


Here is the php

if (isset($_POST) & !empty($_POST)) {
$category = $_POST['category'];
$title = mysqli_real_escape_string($connection,$_POST['title']);
$content = mysqli_real_escape_string($connection,$_POST['content']);

$image = $_FILES['pic']['name'];

$target = "uploads/".basename($image);

move_uploaded_file($_FILES['pic']['tmp_name'], $target);

$sql = "INSERT INTO posts (userid, categoryid, post_title, post_content, post_image) VALUES ('$userid', '$category', '$title', '$content', '$image')";
$result = mysqli_query($connection, $sql);

if ($result) {
header("location: viewpost.php "wink;
}else{
$fmsg = "Failed to post";
}
}


The problem is that the page i'm directing to throws me this errors because i don't know how to capture the id

Notice: Undefined index: id in C:\xampp\htdocs\project\viewpost.php on line 14


Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\project\viewpost.php on line 69


<?php
$postsql = "SELECT * FROM posts WHERE id = $id";
$postquery = mysqli_query($connection, $postsql);
if ($postquery->num_rows > 0) {
while($row = $postquery->fetch_assoc()) {
$post_title = $row['post_title'];
$userid = $row['userid'];
$post_date = $row['post_date'];
$post_image = $row['post_image'];
$post_content = $row['post_content'];
?>


The bold is causing the error cause i don't how to capture the id using GET method in a POST form

Hello house, i have been learning java for about 3 weeks now, at one networking, web hosting and fibre optics company at ikeja.
A software engineer in the company although he is not working for the company but a freelance java progrmmer is training me, it is a 3 - months training.
I love it so much, we finished, java oops, constructors in java, static keyword, java inheritance, right now i am in java overriding.
Now someone is telling me java is outdated, that i should leave it and do C#, CSS and HTML
I am so confused
I checked the 10 most used apps in the world and java is still among 10 3.
Hey bro, could you please tell me where you're tuning this training and how much it costs..

Thanks in anticipation

I am newbie
Stumbled upon this thread last week and i decided to start with python.
I am still studying the basics: variables, types, values, Boolean expression, logic, etc.
And today i wrote my first script that can be used to convert a Fahrenheit degree to celcius degree to challenge myself.

When excuted in python interpreter
It will ask user for his name
Tell user that his same name is his password
If password is correct, it will move forward to conversion stage which will convert any Fahrenheit degree to celcius,
and if not it will write incorrect password and close.

Also, if during conversation, a user put anything other than number, it will prompt user to type in just number.

I just hope i become better as i progress.



If post == encouraging:
print ("press like"wink

elif post == motivating:
print ("press share"wink

else:
print ("comments is welcome)

Thanks
