Introduction to Web Development with PHP

This presentation will provide an overview of how browser-based database applications work, with an iSeries audience in mind. It will demonstrate the client-side languages - HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and show how PHP scripts running on a server can dynamically build web pages including content from an iSeries database.

We will discuss the HTTP protocol and how web servers work with HTML and PHP, look at some common formatting techniques in HTML and CSS, demonstrate how HTML forms interact with PHP scripts, and show what JavaScript is and how it makes the browser more functional. With these basics concepts in mind, you should be able to make better decisions about how to sort through the many options available for web-enabling your legacy databases.


Learning Objectives:
1. Provide an overview of how browser-based database applications work, with an iSeries audience in mind.
2. Help RPG programmers and managers, with little or no web development experience, understand the major concepts and technologies involved in building web applications.
3. Provide demos and code examples of the major languages involved in typical web applications: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and SQL.


PHP - Beyond the Basics:

This presentation will cover some intermediate topics in PHP programming that you can use to go beyond the basics of PHP syntax and SQL selects, enabling you to create some useful business applications. Topics covered will include: logic for paging through large record sets, creating CSV files and streaming them to the browser, sending email with attachments, session management and cookies. A basic familiarity with PHP syntax is assumed.


Audience:

This presentation is for beginner to novice web programmers, or those who would like to understand the technologies and languages involved in a typical web application. Recommended for RPG programmers interested in starting out with web development, or managers who would like to understand the major concepts and languages involved in developing web applications on iSeries.
