Course programme

Using open source MySQL databases with PHP server-side scripting, is increasingly popular amongst web developers. This is reflected in the large number of hosting companies offering PHP/MySQL hosting packages.

This course considers how as a web developer you can use these technologies for developing database driven web sites. As such this course considers the construction of PHP scripts and PHP programming techniques. Then it will consider how to create a MySQL database and to manage it with phpMyadmin. Each topic is supported by coded examples. As such, amongst other things, you will build a user registration system, a shopping cart and a database driven web site.
