PHP is the language powering more than 80% of the web that uses server-side technology. If you want your website to interact with a database and have back-end functionality, then you need to know PHP.

On this two-day course, we’ll start by teaching you how to set up your server, and write your first line of PHP code.

Over two consecutive days, you’ll learn how to send and receive information to and from a database, and how to create secure, interactive website functionality. Through project-based learning you’ll gain hands-on experience working with variables, arrays, conditional statements, loops, functions, objects, error reporting and exceptions.

Our PHP & MySQL course is available as a private training session that can be delivered via Virtual Classroom or at a location of your choice in Australia.
