(MUSIC). Welcome to PHP MySQL Essential Training. My name is Kevin Skoglund. In this course, we'll review the basic PHP data types, and learn to use PHP's control structures, like logical expressions and loops, in order to control how our code executes. We'll cover many of PHP's built in functions, we'll also learn to define our own custom functions. We'll cover the basics of SQL and learn how to use PHP to connect to a MySQL database, which will allow us to create, read, update, and delete records. We'll learn the fundamentals of user authentication, that is the process of requiring a username and password to log into a PHP application. And finally we'll build a complete PHP web application from start to finish. A content management system that will allow admins to log in and manage the website content that gets displayed to the public. I'm excited and I hope you are too. So lets get started learning PHP.
