PHP baby steps (redux)

  • Feb 5, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At January's meetup we brainstormed a number topics for 2013, including a basic introduction to PHP for members who may be experienced in web design but new to server-side programming.

So, baby steps: I'll be updating a presentation from a couple of years ago.

Fortunately for all of us, PHP has a very gentle learning curve. (IMHO, one big reason for it's phenomenal success.)

We'll start with an html form in a static page, introduce some very basic ways to process the form data with PHP, then continue to some basics of storing and retrieving data on the server.

I'll be counting on other PHP-experienced members to chime in with comments, corrections and suggestions for next steps.

    Great Meetup! Lots of good information shared to some of the more junior folks and still fun to hear some of the senior folks banter back and forth about MVC and who had the best CODING SHOES!

    Eric, thanks for the presentation, Justin thanks for the place/pizza!

    Huge turnout tonight! It was great seeing everyone and wish I had the time to talk with more folks, some new faces I didn't get to meet. Meeting was well done, thank you Eric for the presentation and Justin for the pizza and letting us use his place again. Fun chats afterwards on the Yii battleground, MVC, Linux, Macs, zombies, and more. Great group, a joy to be able to tap into such diverse knowledge and experience. Looking forward to next month.

    Where is the best place to park? I've only been to Jax a few times.

      The Modis building has plenty of parking near the main entrance by 7:00. We meet on the 4'th floor - the security guard will be expecting us.
