Web Development 2 is a continuation of Web Development 1 and it dives deeper into MySQL Labs, advanced PHP topics as well as Content Management System (CSM). You will learn how web developers effectively plan, design, implement, and troubleshoot dynamic websites built in PHP. This includes understanding how to administer, maintain, and troubleshoot the supporting infrastructure i.e. web servers and web-based databases. You will learn how to create authentication, login & logout screens in a web page and be able to implement Administration Portal. You will switch from procedural PHP to object-oriented utilizing the new PDO library when connecting to a MySQL database.
Prerequisites: Web Development 2 students are expected to meet the prerequisites of Web Development 1 along with a foundational understanding of PHP and a relational database system sufficient to build a simple yet functioning web application. While not required, it would be helpful if a student was familiar with using an integrated development environment [IDE] like Sublime Text, Atom, Visual Studio Code or some other tool with more features than a basic text editor. We encourage you to bring your own laptop to complete and save the course projects. You must attend 90% of all scheduled class hours, in addition to completing any other requirements set by the instructor, in order to pass the class and be awarded CEUs and a Certificate of Completion.
