Introduction to Section 9 - PHP

In this chapter I will take you, step-by-step, through the process of converting the static HTML we have written to a database-driven dynamic website which uses just one HTML framwework as the template to display varying data, the data displayed depending on variables set in the URL.

If you follow all the lessons in this chapter, you will get a thorough coverage of the programming logic involved, as well as the logical steps a coder might go through in this process.

At various points I will pause and ask you to complete the next small step, based on what we have just been doing.

There are also four major assignments, where I ask you to complete a whole piece of the project – these require more thought of the logic involved.
