PHP was one of the first and still is the most popular language on the web for building dynamic websites without having to compile code. As a server-side language, PHP allows authors to retrieve data from any database, manipulate it, and display it on the web, enabling users to interact with it. To date, PHP powers millions of websites including Facebook, Etsy, and the most popular CMS applications, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.

This course is an introduction to PHP meant for budding programmers. We we cover PHP syntax, basic server-side concepts, and MySQL. A familiarity with basic HTML and CSS is required.

Prerequisites:

Familiarity with basic HTML and CSS.
