Coding for Everyone

PHP for Everyone (COD04)

When you go to the library, certain things may involve some level of interaction with a librarian. You’d show them your library card to confirm who you are. You may ask them for information or if a certain book is available. The librarian would check this information in the vast library and then give that information back to you. In essence, that’s what PHP does for a web browser.

PHP is a preprocessor language on a server that’s designed to allow a computer access to web pages through a browser. It can be used to check information in a server's database that’s requested by the browser, for example; someone's login details for a website or just an exciting article about baseball. It’s essentially a retriever of facts that is stored in the server's memory.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Identify what PHP is and what it does
• Understand the advantages of PHP

Why take this course?

This course is for anyone who wants to know what PHP is and how it works. Perhaps you’re a complete beginner to coding, or someone who’s interested in learning more about how computers and databases function together. We’re here to make a potentially complex idea into a simple one that anyone can get their head around.
