PHP 202 : Building PHP Applications


Take your PHP skills to the next level and build robust, scalable systems with this two-day training course designed to rapidly develop your PHP coding expertise. We’ll focus on using object oriented approaches and database concepts, two of the core building blocks for developing PHP applications, and learn about design patterns. 

This course takes a very practical approach to using OOP concepts and design approaches. You’ll build a simple MVC application to put your new skills in to practice.  There’s a strong focus on data handling, including how to design databases for scalability, writing complex join queries and using PDO to get the best out of PHP.  We also cover other data sources such as working with web services and files. 

This is a hands-on training course so you’ll be able to hone your skills with our specially designed exercises aimed at developing a deep understanding that you can then put in to practice in your own development projects after you have completed the course.
