Bill Hollett is a professional PHP web developer and the new KLUG
webmaster. He used a laptop running OpenSuSE v10.x and the Impress
application in OpenOffice.org with the KLUG SVGA projector to take
us through 47 slides detailing the AMP (Apache, MySQL, & PHP) web
development basics. Bill does not limit his programming to MySQL for
his interactive web-based applications.

What is PHP? PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language
that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded

into HTML. http://www.php.net/

If I use an If statement will my program think? What's a For Loop
for?
What happens while a While Loop runs? How do Functions function?
Can anyone explain an array? What's a henway? Bill covered these and
more at our first in a series on basic web site programming. Bill used
humor to keep everyone awake and he was obviously enjoying sharing
how wonderful PHP is to work with. That grin was ear to ear. Great to
hear from someone who really enjoys their work tools. A henway? OK!

PHP programming basics covered in this session:
Format of PHP Code
Variables
If Statements
Nesting
Arrays
Functions
Parameters
Function Parameters
While Loops
While Ooops
For Loops
Loopy Loops

Look for Bill’s next PHP programming presentation in May. If
you missed the first session, catch up and get ready for more
web site development and PHP fun. Maybe Bill will go over the
henway again.
