Rack up the hits with PHP/PostgreSQL Bootcamp, February 25-29, 2008.
Big Nerd Ranch, Inc. announces an exciting new training class for web designers and database administrators looking to expand their skills into web development, the new PHP 5/PostgreSQL Bootcamp slated for February 25-29, 2008. The class reflects Big Nerd Ranch's continuing quest to create high quality training classes that provide an in-depth understanding of the technology. PHP 5, which has rapidly become one of the most prevalent web development languages in the market, is the perfect platform for moving beyond simple web sites for clients into full-featured database-driven web applications. By combining PHP 5 with PostgreSQL, the most robust and scalable open-source database available, students will master the tools necessary to develop full-featured web solutions.
By placing more emphasis on the database component of web application development, the PHP 5/PostgreSQL Bootcamp offers a more realistic approach to how web applications actually work. Students learn how HTML, CSS, PHP and a back-end database all integrate together to provide something useful and compelling to users. Ultimately, this will improve the skills of developers seeking to rise above the competition in the web development services they can provide.
Mark Fenoglio, class instructor, commented about the new class, "Students will be surprised how much easier it is to learn database concepts when they are applied in the context of a working web site. Why columns of particular tables are needed. Why the primary key is so crucial in database design. How different pieces of information fit together to provide a useful dataset for a web page."
Upon completion of the class, students will be able to:
- Use PHP and PostgreSQL to build a complete CRM website and application
- Understand how to integrate PHP and PostgreSQL with complementary web technologies (e.g., CSS, XML, pdf, AJAX) to produce professional web solutions
- Implement security measures to prevent the most common kinds of attacks in a web environment
- Understand how to integrate third-party libraries (e.g., PEAR) into PHP applications, dramatically reducing development time
