A building works better with a solid foundation beneath it. The same is true for PHP. Whether you are new to programming or are just looking for a refresher, this session will take you through the basics. Beth Tucker Long will cover strings and arrays, conditions and loops, sessions and cookies, form validation and security, and writing your own functions. Best of all, Beth won't just talk about these concepts, she'll go through actual code, so you can see them in action. Bring your laptop, follow along, and you'll have a working application when you leave. Questions are welcomed! We will have a short meet and greet starting at 6:30 and the talk will start promptly at 7pm. I'm working to arrange a giveaway for the meetup but to win you have to RSVP (Yes or Maybe) and be present at the meetup. See you there!
