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 online course, you'll see how to create a commercial online store using the PHP programming language and the MySQL database server.
You'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.
