David Sklar, Software Architect, Ning, Inc.

Track: PHP
Date: Monday, July 26
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Salon H


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.
