This is a two-day workshop. By registering on this page, you also register to attend the second part on Wednesday, July 13th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
It is almost unimaginable for an interactive, dynamic, and fully functional web site or digital library to be designed and built without using server-side technologies. The real power behind Web applications ultimately resides on the server side. PHP is among the most popular server-side technologies because of its flexibility, power and reliability. This two-day intensive, hands-on workshop will provide a general introduction to web programming using PHP. The instructor will use a hands-on approach to teach the basic concepts and many techniques that are commonly used in web programming step by step.
Who should attend:
System librarians, electronic resources librarians, web masters, and others interested in using server-side technologies to develop dynamic web sites, online databases, small digital library projects, and content management systems.
Participants should be familiar with basic HTML and CSS. Prior knowledge in programming and database construction will help, but is not required.
By the end of this program, participants will:
Be able to create simple dynamic web applications using PHP. The instructor will set up individual servers for students to create and test their PHP codes. After the workshop, students can continue to use the servers for practice through the Internet for two weeks. To provide time for the instructor to set up your server, please enroll one week before the workshop.
