PHP was one of the first and still the most popular languages on the web allowing people to build dynamic websites without having to compile code. As a server side language, PHP can retrieve data from any database, manipulate it and display it on the web for users to interact with. PHP is used by millions of websites including Facebook, Etsy and the most popular CMS applications Wordpress and Drupal.

This course is an introduction to PHP meant for budding programmers. We will cover PHP, basic server-side concepts, and MySQL. A familiarity with basic HTML and CSS is required. If you are an experienced developer interested in taking the class, email us at philly@girldevelopit.com.
