PHP for Beginners

PHP was one of the first and still is the most popular language on the web for building dynamic websites without having to compile code. As a server side language, PHP allows authors to retrieve data from any database, manipulate it and display it on the web, enabling users to interact with it. To date, PHP powers millions of websites including Facebook, Etsy and the most popular CMS applications, like Wordpress and Drupal. If you have previously taken a PHP course with us, this will be slightly expanding on those concepts, but not departing too drastically from our standards curriculum :).

This course is an introduction to PHP and how it interacts with web servers. Students can expect a syntax and, server-side concepts, and an overview of MySQL.

This is a 4 week course. The fee of $90 covers all 4 weeks.

About the teacher

Leo Newball, Jr. is a web developer, designer, and data geek on a mission to empower my clients to achieve their dreams through technology. 
I started building websites in 1995, when domain names cost just $35 and everyone’s favorite search engine was Yahoo!. 15 years later and couple executive staff jobs later, I now use my development, design, and data skills to create dynamic websites for a wide variety of clients in fields like film, tech and non-profit organizations. My current favorite platforms and languages are HTML 5, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, and MySQL.

      It's possible we can get more seating. I did an improper count :( We will work on it for the next class!

      I wrote on 5/8 and Aurelia replied 5/9. I sent another email 5/9, 5/15 and then 5/17 requesting the refund. Was looking forward to attend it. However new dates meant missing half the session.

    I have absolutely no back-end experience. Is this course for someone like me?

    2 · May 6

    • Leo Newball

      Completely! The idea is to teach the idea of backend, while teaching code as well. If you have any front-end experience, it will all come together while the class progresses.
