PHP is the language that powers Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress, and more – in fact, it is the most common server-side language on the web!

You can use PHP to build interactive, dynamic websites.

We will go over the basics of programming with PHP – variables, functions, loops, and more. We will also show you how to connect your code to a MySQL database. 

By the end of the class you will have a fully functional PHP website.

We’ll also be hosting a “closed” Code & Coffee for the workshop students to stop in and ask questions, get help with the homework, and get their machines setup with SQL for sessions 3-4. Details to be announced later.

Students who attend all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion, which can be added to your resume or LinkedIn profile!

PREREQUISITES: This is a beginner-level course and a working understanding of HTML and CSS would be great. This class is designed for those who have limited programming experience and have been looking to jump into the world of PHP/MySQL.
