PHP Techniques - training course
Using PHP to write efficient, maintainable web applications.
Duration: 2 days • Price: £650.00 (VAT free from January 2019), • Venue: Melksham, Wiltshire

Usually scheduled to meet customer needs or run as a private course. Please email for details
An intensive two day workshop style course for programmers with some prior PHP experience who wish to make full use of the facilities of the language to write robust, reliable, secure and maintainable innovative web sites for their companies and clients. You'll arrive the evening before the course at our hotel - settle in, get a good nights sleep, and get on line with your own computer or with one of our loan systems, talking to our PHP web servers, and ready for your course.

After a brief revision of the mechanisms of the PHP language itself, we go on to look at how you should write code to enhance the user experience - to make fields "sticky", to maintain knowledge of each user to your site, to work out where in the world they're visiting from and whether your visitors are regular users, or crawlers indexing your page.

We cover the design of multiform applications, and how that can be done with the flexibility to reuse code across between pages without substantial recoding, and how to use databases for images, for user preferences, and for regular data.

Flexible use of URLs, handling errors and error pages, and site seaeches are all tools which PHP can help you with - whether you're looking for a simple logging script, a "did you mean" type facility for sound-alike works, or even a full spell checker.

With a wide variety of techniques covered through the two days, the final session brings the aspects that are especially relevant to each delegate together in a final practical session that helps you cement what you have learned.

PHP is a programming language that - at its simplest - is embedded in web pages to add server side control to them. But you can do much more that than with PHP - you can write complete web based applications, such as many of those we run on this site.
