Learn PHP and MySQL! The most popular database languages used today, they are integral to popular web content management systems, including Drupal and WordPress. During the course, students will learn how to create a MySQL database, develop PHP code to interact with their database, integrate multiple content types including images, and integrate all of this into a webpage!

If you've got a working knowledge of HTML and CSS and have been looking to jump into the world of PHP & MySQL, this class is for you!

Dinner & drinks will be provided by Atomic Object on both nights.
