PHP Programming Fundamentals
PHP has become the de-facto standard server-side programming language for web applications, particularly because oit works so well with Apache (the popular web server), but also because of its versatility and its simplicity of use for the implementation of relatively complex tasks,such as. user authentication, possibly with the help of MySQL. During this course, the basic syntax of PHP is treated in a detailed and structured manner, though examples and also with the opportunity for students to to try out everything in practice
