Today we had an excellent meet and greet. We went ahead and settled on the PHP/MySQL Class Schedule. More details will follow early next week, and the meetings will be scheduled on the calendar at that time. The basic details are now that there will be 6 weeks of classes. The dates are:
November 7th at 11:00am.
November 14th at 11:00am.
November 21st at 11:00am.
November 28th will be skipped for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
December 5th at 11:00AM.
December 12th at 11:00AM.
December 19th at 11:00AM.
December 26th will be skipped for the Christmas Holiday.
By the end of the 19th's class we will have decided on whether to schedule another round of Basic Intro or to move on to a next level. The location will be announced early next week
Since this is a Basic Intro to PHP and MySQL there are some pre-requisites. You MUST know how to use a computer, how to turn it on, how to
use a graphical user interface, how to use a text editor or a basic word processor. You don't have to be an expert in any of these. You must also understand the basics of HTML. That is you should know who to create an HTML document, HTML tags with their attributes. You don't have to be an expert designer, or know killer HTML or standards, or any such thing.
Also, while missed classes are understandable, too many would require a participant to sit the balance of the sessions out and join us the next time. I'm gladly willing to catch someone up to a missed class. But it's too much of a set back to have someone come into the class at the 4th week, with no experience at all in PHP or MySQL as we would spend too much time trying to explain the basics again, which the other students would already have gone over.
Now as to the books. For this Basic Intro, I've decided to skip the books. We'll see how it goes and then add books next time round
if needed. In the meantime I will be pointing everyone to online resources that will need to have been studied *prior* to each day's lesson. So everyone will read the lesson, and then join us on Saturday Mornings to discuss, experiment and so on.
