The Corner Workbench: PHP Basic Concepts

Last month we had a good turnout to our first joint meetup, Introduction to Laravel, covering the frameworks structure, components, and usage.  This month we will be discussing PHP Basic Concepts, reviewing the essential pieces for a better understanding of PHP development.  Time permitting, we will finish up with Classes, Objects, and usage of some of the built-in SPL (Standard PHP Library) classes.

There seems to be large percentage of members who are relatively new to PHP and programming in general.  In an effort to create level playing ground for us all, we will formalize the concepts to get started.  In this series we will be covering a rudimentary understanding of what a PHP program is, how it works, and what basic pieces are used.




The PHP community has been growing strongly for years and picking up speed as it moves.  As a low-entry, robust, and expandable interpretative language, it's generated a significant percentage of the internet as we know it.  Expanding our skill and tool set is important in our growth with PHP.  The Corner Workbench is a forum to learn about PHP, tools, utilities, packages, libraries, frameworks, and a lot more.  As we move forward we'll uncover principles of PHP, programming, development, and design.  Each new bit of information helps us to become stronger in our talents.

Our meeting space is being provided by Tampa Hackerspace, a member based cooperative makerspace; make sure to thank them.



We have a discussion board for The Corner Workbench.

    I'm sure were going to talk about some cool things today. I am currently looking for a good open source dms (document management system). What do you guys think of www.opendocman.com? It's a php based open source app.

    I have some maintenance windows to schedule for work and need to spend some time with the wife and daughter before hand. Unfortunately they don't share my interests in PHP. Maybe next time guys and gals!

    I'm considering learning to code, and I'm looking to evaluate if it's feasible to learn at this point in my life, how to get started, advise, and listen to others who are already made it a career.
