13AC Connecting the Dots: Building Web Applications with PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

New to web development, or trying to get started? Have you taken a PHP course, but are having trouble understanding how to build complete applications for the web? Or maybe you're a manager trying to get an understanding of how web applications work at a high level. This presentation will provide an overview of how browser-based database applications work, with an IBM i / RPG audience in mind. It will demonstrate the client-side languages - HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and show how PHP scripts running on a server can dynamically build web pages including content from an IBM i DB2 database. We will discuss the HTTP protocol and how web servers work with HTML and PHP, look at some common formatting techniques in HTML and CSS, demonstrate how HTML forms interact with PHP scripts, and show what JavaScript is and how it makes the browser more functional. With these basics concepts in mind, you should be able to make better decisions about how to sort through the many options available for web-enabling your legacy databases. This presentation is for beginner to novice web programmers, or those who would like to understand the technologies and languages involved in a typical web application. This session is a recommended (not mandatory) pre-requisite for John's labs on HTML, PHP, and JavaScript.

This is Session ID:170065
