Building a CMS with Codeigniter series on Tutsplus
I recorded a series of video tutorials for Tutsplus.com called 'Building a CMS with Codeigniter'. This followed the tutorials I did for Codeigniter.tv. For those, I got a lot of requests to do a series on building an entire web application with Codeigniter. As soon as it's released I'll post a link to it.
In this series I demonstrate building all parts of the application from scratch: base controllers, base model, authentication system, you name it. And it's all done using a off-the-shelf Codeigniter 2.1.3.
Don't get me wrong. I do not believe in coding everything yourself. There are hundreds of great libraries out there, and a lot of them are better than I could ever code. But the learning experience you get form creating solutions yourself is unsurpassed.
I really do hope you will love this series. Let me know how you like it in the comments.
