TeamTreeHouse – Build a Basic PHP Website
This Course will show you how to build a simple website using the PHP programming language.
Object-Oriented Programming allows groups of people to work together more easily. By grouping data and functionality into objects we also provide a structure for testing individual pieces. In this 13-hour Track, you’ll learn the modern approach to Application Development in PHP using Objects, Templates, Dependency Management and 3rd Party Packages.
We’ll start things off by building a basic PHP website. The site, a media library, will allow you to organize and display your Books, Movies, and Music, and you’ll learn how to use PHP to handle inventory, reuse code, and manage email and form data.
Next, we’ll dive headfirst into Object-Oriented PHP. Object-oriented programming lets us group data and functions into a specific topic or piece of functionality, which in PHP is called a class. We’ll explore the ways a class allows us to work with data, and use this knowledge to build a simple cookbook app with recipes.
In the next part of the Track, we’ll learn how to combine interface contracts with the class hierarchy to leverage the benefits of each concept.
