Introduction to PHP

Aug 4, 2015 · Durham, United States of America

This 4-part course runs on Tuesday evenings: August 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th. The classes run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm each evening.
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. 
This class is sponsored by the American Underground and Smashing Boxes! 
The American Underground is a Community Partner providing support to host GDIRDU’s classes at the American Tobacco Campus.
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended for this class. You do not need any programming experience.

    It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male.
