PHP has been a popular server-side web technology for almost two decades—longer than any other commonly used programming language for building database-driven websites. Although PHP can be used with any of the popular databases (e.g., SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL), it is most commonly paired with MySQL. The MySQL training portion of the course covers the MySQL-PHP connection. Learning to use PHP and MySQL together positions you well for jobs maintaining the millions upon millions of websites built on these technologies. You will also be able to build websites from scratch, though you will need to know other technologies, such as HTML and CSS.
This course can be taken on either a PC or Mac. Chromebook is not compatible.
