A weekend getting the very best out of PHP
This 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
On the Saturday morning, we'll cover some of the mysteries of subjects
like associative arrays, sorting, and regular expressions before moving on
to cover best practise in PHP - how to write code that you can easily
modify and understand later, and which is robust and secure in operation.
Lunch is provided
Multiple page applications, where users log in and follow on from one
page to another, are a major element of PHP usage. We'll show you how to
design and write such systems, including an introduction to 4 layer model
and "MVC" techniques which allow you to keep the workings seperated from the
look and feel - letting you make changes later, and to delegate the artistic
elements of your site to a graphics artist, while you look after the code
without the need to also learn another complete skill set.
On Sunday morning, we'll take a look at some of the standard modules that
are available free of charge to you - to insert a feed from another site
on your page, to identify where in the world your visitors are coming from
and whether they're regular visitors or have just arrived via a search,
and so on. We'll then take a look at a couple of standard PHP applications -
the exact selection to be made based on what the delegates want, but we may
be looking at Drupal, Simple Machines Forum and OS Commerce (for example),
seeing how they're installed and tailored so that you can use the power of
the standard PHP applications to do exactly what you want.
After Lunch on Sunday (which we'll provide - but nothing too heavy as
you'll not want to fall asleep in front of the TV!), we'll have a look at
other modules and facilities of interest - delegates may wish to look at
dynamic web site tracking and providing feedback to users on popular pages.
They may wish to look at genarating graphics, or at interfacing to Google
maps, or at Thumbnail and Image upload and library issues.
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.
