Feels good that I am not the only one having difficulties to comprehend the tutorials
I have some knowledge of PHP and what I am looking for is some quick start guidance to get me going. Your tutorial is comprehensive however it lacks what I am looking for. A quick start guide on how to create for example your first form. If you can add a section to your tutorial, quick start on forms, just to grasp the basics that would be fantastic!

Create myfirstform.php in /testdrive/controllers/
