Web Applications with PHP and MySQL

Course Overview

For those who want to keep their web applications cheap and simple, there is no better way than sticking to the tried and trusted technology of PHP combined with MySQL. PHP has become the de facto way of producing small to medium e-commerce sites, using a straightforward programming model combined with plenty of powerful features. MySQL provides the perfect introduction to databases, as its basic approach provides all that most web databases will need without the encumbrance or inefficiency of unnecessary complexities. They are also both completely free. PHP training and MySQL training thus provide the simplest, cheapest and most painless introduction to e-commerce.

This course first gives just the basic information necessary to build your first e-commerce application, which can be tailored to your requirements. The advanced concepts that are then taught thus make more sense by being seen in the context of your own self-created web site.
