This class is in English and is a 4-day series running on four consecutive Monday nights starting on March 7th from 6:30pm to 9:00pm each day. The cost covers all 4 nights.
PHP is the language that powers Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress, and more--in fact, it is the most common server-side language on the web! 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.
We will go over the basics of programming with PHP--variables, functions, loops, and more! We will also show you how to connect your code to a MySQL database. By the end of the class you will have a fully functional PHP website.
Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is reccomended for this class. But you do not need any previous programming knowledge to sign up. Beginners welcome!
Please note that this is a four part class.
Tech Requirements for this class:
• Your laptop.
