Introduction to PHP 5

WRK3 Workshops Track

Big Bend C & D


We will cover basic PHP use with a focus on the power of dynamic pages in comparison to static HTML, including a short history of PHP, statement syntax, basic program logic statements and data types, simple PHP pages, and HTML forms. This workshop is for those people with no experience with PHP or those who are just getting started and would like to fill in their knowledge and ask questions as needed. Designers and those that don't normally work with PHP code, but have to work "around" it and would like to feel more comfortable will benefit also. While we can't cover everything in PHP in the short amount of time we have, this will be a good start with a focus on the most basic and useful parts of the language.
