Intermediate PHP and MySQL

Learn how to create an interactive online store complete with an online catalog of products, allowing customers to browse the catalog to select items, place them in a shopping cart, and complete an order. In this six-week online course, you'll see how to create a commercial online store using the PHP programming language and the MySQL database server.

We'll walk through the steps for developing a complete online store Web application. During the course, you'll see step-by-step how to create all of the software and database objects used in the application. The application consists of two parts, an administrative Web application allowing a store manager to post new products, alter product information, and process customer orders, and a customer Web application allowing customers to browse the catalog of products, select products for purchase, and check out using a shopping cart. At the end of the course, you'll be able to use these code templates to create your own online store application.

Intermediate PHP and MySQL Outline
Expand All
Week 1

You'll see how to use the PHP programming language to create the Web store storefront page, complete with product catalog and customer ordering system. You'll also discover how Web stores use the popular MySQL database server to maintain the store inventory and track customer orders. Then, you'll create functions in your PHP programming code that you can use every time you need to perform a specific feature in your applications.

Week 2

Explore some of the advanced features that the MySQL database server offers. You'll discover how to use the MySQL console to enter SQL commands, and build commands to create the application database objects. You'll manually create a database, user account, and all of the tables required for the application. Then, you'll dive into the Web store backend application, which allows the store manager to control the Web store environment. You can use this basic backend template to create your own Web store management interfaces for other Web applications.

Week 3

Learn how to incorporate images into your Web store application. You'll discover how to use the MySQL Binary Large Object (BLOB) data type to store images within the MySQL database, and how to organize your product catalog by creating sections in the product catalog and assigning each product to a specific section. Then, you'll build the backend Web pages required to allow the store manager to modify information in existing product database records.

Week 4

Learn how to best organize and present your products in the store without overwhelming your customers with information while providing them with an easy path to obtaining the information they're looking for. Then, discover how to create a shopping cart for your customers.

Week 5

You'll create registration pages, to allow your customers to register as returning customers to make future checkout sessions easier. You'll also find out how to take steps to ensure that the data your customers enter in the registration process is valid, and how to protect it from prying eyes. Then, we'll walk through the PHP programming and MySQL database techniques required to process the customer order data in your application.

Week 6

Learn advanced MySQL searching techniques to help your customers find just what they're looking for. Next, you'll find out how to generate reports directly from your Web store database for your store manager. Finally, we'll walk through the basic principles of object-oriented programming and how to use it in a Web environment.
