Prereq: basic programming experience and familiarity with HTML encou

Although PHP may not stand for "Programmed Hypertext Pwnage," it just may be that awesome. PHP is a server-side scripting language that is used on millions of websites around the world to dynamically generate websites. In other words, your PHP code generates the HTML that is displayed in your internet browser. This class will be a fast-paced introduction to programming in PHP that will teach you the concepts and uses of the language, as well as take you through several examples.

Some topics to be covered: basic syntax, using PHP to generate websites, accessing MySQL databases, using cookies and sessions, security, PHP extensions such as cURL (for accessing outside websites) and GD (for making images), and more. Some basic programming experience and familiarity with HTML is highly encouraged.
