About This Class

This is a beginners course in the MYSQLi and PHP from How To Code Well by Peter Fisher.

The course covers the basics of connecting, querying, deleting and inserting data into a MYSQL database via the MYSQLi extension of PHP.

Practical Hands On Approach

My approach with this course is very similar to my other courses and that is to offer practical real world examples of the subject. Each lesson will be based around a challenge which we will accomplish together in easy to follow steps.

Why Should I Learn MYSQLi and PHP?

The MYSQL database is extremely popular as a data store for many web applications. It is therefore important to understand how to manage MYSQL databases quickly and efficiently via PHP.

MYSQLi is the PHP extension of choice for connecting and managing MYSQL data via PHP
