Part 3 – Intro to PHP
For this class we’ll be covering some of the basics of PHP (a server-side scripting language). In particular we will cover some common approaches for dealing with common scripting issues and also coving some of the basics of object-oriented programming (which is applicable to LOTS of other languages). For this class we will be building a basic templating and url routing system for our website that was originally developed in Part 1 and Part 2 of the series. We will also be talking about server architectures and hosting options…. we’ll even tour the guts of a high-availability server environment!
** Some reading and requested software (development tools) for the class will be distributed prior to each class as to get everyone off to a quick start.
** Goes without saying, but you’ll need some kind of computing machine to take the class. I’ll be teaching from a Mac using a development environment called “Komodo” (http://www.activestate.com/komodo-edit) but any flavor of machine (Linux, Windows… hell, run BeOS if you want!) is totally fine. I’ll send out some recommended software for each operating system prior to the first class.
