PHP was one of the first and still is the most popular language on the web for building dynamic websites without having to compile code. As a server side language, PHP allows authors to retrieve data from any database, manipulate it and display it on the web, enabling users to interact with it. To date, PHP powers millions of websites including Facebook, Etsy and the most popular CMS applications, like Wordpress and Drupal. If you have previously taken a PHP course with us, this will be slightly expanding on those concepts, but not departing too drastically from our standards curriculum :).
This course is an introduction to PHP and how it interacts with web servers. Students can expect a syntax and, server-side concepts, and an overview of MySQL.
