This two-day course is designed to follow on from the “Programming Foundations” course, which would be a pre-requisite (or equivalent programming experience). It will discuss what PHP is used for, explore how fundamental programming concepts are implemented and introduce some practical uses for PHP scripting. The aim of the course is for delegates to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to be able to construct a simple website that will allow a user to log in and authenticate the data supplied and react to the result.
The course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn web development and perhaps progress into using PHP as a backend server scripting language. It is suitable for those who are relatively new to programming, or experienced developers skilled in other languages who need to learn the nuances of PHP.
