PHP & MYSQL For Beginners
(1 Day Workshop)

… a fun, inspiring experience focussing on the different uses and benefits of PHP

What is PHP?

PHP is a server-side scripting language used to build a majority of the most powerful websites you will see on the internet today. Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress use the language to build their framework.

Whether you want to learn PHP from scratch or you would like to know what it is all about we have a 1 day course designed for you. We will go through the building blocks needed to get started using PHP in your websites today.

Why do i need to learn PHP

Learning a new language can seem terrifying at first but once you understand the basics there are various ways it can benefit your website. e.g. simple date and time displays to capturing submitted form data.

The methodology of PHP can be applied to many different coding languages. So once you have the core understanding of if / else statements and loops you can start learning the others too.
