Beginning PHP for the leisure market - training course
Learn how to make you web site more dynamic
DESCRIPTIONThis is a two day weekend course which is designed for the delegate who writes and maintains web site(s) for local leisure groups, charities, or just for the pleasure of his own hobby - he does the work because he enjoys it, and not because he's paid for it.
Arrive the evening before the course formally starts, check in and meet the tutor and other delegates. That evening, we'll also talk informally about exactly what you want to get from the weekend so that we can tailor accordingly.
On the Saturday morning, we'll introduce you to programming with a PHP bias, tell you about the language and have you including a "Message of the day" into your pages - and telling the user what the date is too. We'll go on to look at programming principles - variables and loops - and we'll generate pages showing tables of results.
Lunch is provided
In the afternoon, we'll read information from a form and use it within the program; we'll look at how you can handle user's errors (and user's attempts to be malicious too!) and how you can make the data entry user friendly too. Even at this stage of the course, we'll be showing youhow to make the code easy for you to upgrade and modify later, by keeping the program logic apart from the look and feel - we'll have you writing reusable functions and 'parameterising' your code.
On Sunday morning, we'll cover 'core' subjects such as arrays and more string handling, and show you how to store and read data - via files, and also using databases such as Sqlite and MySQL. All delegates will have use of one of our systems for the duration of the course so that they can try out what they're being taught; when they finish the course, not only will they have seen, but they will have done.
After a light lunch (no heavy Sunday lunch to send you to sleep!), we'll show you how your application can learn more about your visitor so that you can tailor your response to different groups of users, and we'll show you many other things that you'll be able to do with PHP as you develop - a roadmap to the future, helping to point you ahead.
Later in the afternoon, everyone will work on projects that relate to their own use of PHP (please bring your samples and data along) and we'll give you a helping hand to start making use of what you've learned over the weekend - so that you leave us (we can offer you a lift to the station for the evening trains) firing on all cylinders.
