Study and practice go hand in hand since the beginning of time. On ITtestsOnline we promote continuous learning by helping you to assess / practice your coding skills through quizzes or algorithm exercises. The content is created by experienced developers passionate about coding and finding smart solutions to everyday problems.

In October, over 1 600 coders took almost 3 500 tests or AlgoPlay exercises. The great majority seemed to have enjoyed in particular the following 5 quizzes:


1. PHP 5.6 medium level quiz
Topics: OOP, design patterns, arrays, exceptions, magic methods, databases, indexes, file functions, streams and unit testing.
