Course description

PHP Programming

This hands on PHP Programming course provides the knowledge necessary to design and develop dynamic, database-driven Web pages using PHP 7. PHP is a language written for the Web, quick to learn, easy to deploy and provides substantial functionality required for e-commerce. This course introduces the PHP framework and syntax and covers in depth the most important techniques used to build dynamic Web sites. Students learn how to connect to any modern database, and perform hands on practice with a MySQL database to create database-driven HTML forms and reports.

E-commerce skills including user authentication, data validation, dynamic data updates, and shopping cart implementation are covered in detail. Course elements include implementing RESTful servers for newer more data driven sites. Students also learn how to configure PHP and the Apache Web Server.

Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

This was a great course and the instructor was fantastic. The instructor obviously knew a great deal about multiple languages and technology and was able to make analogies that helped me (being a PHP beginner) better understand the material. Overall, a very thorough, well-paced learning experience.

It is not often I come out of a programming class knowing I can immediately put the language to use. After taking the PHP programming course I will begin using the language immediately with the confidence that I understand what is going on.
