Practical PHP covers the following topics:

  • Rapid application development and frameworks: Automatically generate your PHP code and save weeks of writing the same code over and over.
  • Sessions: Pass data between your scripts the secure way. Ideal for shopping carts and larger projects.
  • Security: Try to hack your own web site and learn how to fix the most common security mistakes.
  • Dynamic images: Create buttons, captchas and other images on-the-fly.

If you are interested in using a database as a backend for your web sites, you might be interested in one of the following 1-day or 2-evenings courses which cover basic database design, database configuration and performance tuning as well as an introduction to SQL:
