Hypertext Pre-processor or PHP as we call it;is a server side scripting language. It is in your server and only sends the HTML to the viewer’s browser.It is installed in host of websites and webservers and is one of the leading languages used for websites.

PHP was originally designed for web development and hence has great advantages over other languages. It can be directly embedded into an HTML source file whereas other languages (like C++) need to be called from an external file. It can also be used in Standalone graphical apps or even as a standalone shell on almost every OS out there.

So if you want to or have to work in websites then the knowledge of PHP is a must. Most CMS (Content Management Systems) out there are based on PHP. So if your job involves tinkeringwith websites or handling CMS then you should know a bit about PHP, how to change and configure it, if not fully design a web page using PHP.

With this in mind, we have brought out this course. This course teaches you the basic of PHP with an introduction of HTML &CSS. At the end of the course you will be:

  • Understand how server side programming works on the web
  • Able to use PHP built-in functions and create custom functions
