Instead of a dry walkthrough of keywords and syntax, this tutorial presents an applied introduction to PHP by building a complete database-backed web application: a community calendar that can be used by an organization to track and publicize events.
Participants learn best PHP practices for:
Displaying and processing HTML forms
Talking to a database
Identifying users with sessions and cookies
Securing your code against common hacker attacks
Manipulating numbers, strings, and arrays
Debugging and troubleshooting problems in your code
Code examples in the tutorial focus on PHP 5 but include tips on how to make things work with PHP 4 as well.
