Dynamic Websites with AMP (Apache, MySQL and PHP)

Code: OLRN1274

Course description

The Internet has grown rapidly in the last decade with a profusion of mobile devices that make working and playing on the go as easy as accessing the Internet from a traditional desktop. The demand for database-driven cross-platform web-based applications has increased tremendously. The parallel growth of open source software and the Internet has made web development easy. This course is aimed at users with little programming or database experience who wish to develop professional database-driven web sites that can be accessed from any web-enabled computing device. This is a specialized course which addresses the current trends and technology to create dynamic and secure ecommerce websites easily. It focuses on using AMP (Apache web server with PHP scripting and MySQL database) freely available open source software. The course teaches the students how to install AMP and develop applications with PHP (Apache being the web server and MySQL the back end database server). The knowledge gained in this course can be used easily on other architectures.
