PHP 5 Bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch

Atlanta, GA – Link Up the Newest Installment of PHP 5 Bootcamp at the Big
Nerd Ranch, January 30 – February 3, 2006

Big Nerd Ranch announces the next iteration of PHP 5 Bootcamp for January
30 – February 3, 2006. The new class will be under the leadership of
instructor Mark Fenoglio, the most recent addition to the Big Nerd Ranch’s
stellar lineup of top-notch instructors. The five-day intensive class
covers the ins and outs of PHP 5 development: developing mastery in using
PHP to build modular websites and applications, understanding how PHP
complements other web technologies such as CSS, XML and PDF, managing users
and implementing rights hierarchies, and creating web services. Students
attending the class should be prepared to work hard while immersing
themselves in one of the most popular and exciting emerging technologies in
the industry.

PHP 5 Bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch provides the ideal learning
environment for system administrators, webmasters and web application
developers seeking a dynamic and robust solution to their web-based
database needs. PHP is a flexible scripting language that adapts to a
variety of project needs, with the ability to immediately put learning into
practice upon completion of the course. The course itself is specifically
geared to developers and project managers already familiar with scripting
in HTML, WYSIWYG experts looking to break out of template-based web
development and veteran scripting developers seeking inclusion of PHP in
their skill-set.

“Bringing quality talent like Mark Fenoglio onto our team really marks a
new level of excellence at the Big Nerd Ranch,” commented Aaron Hillegass,
Big Nerd Ranch founder. “We are committed to bringing together students
with a hunger to learn with instructors with the passion, vision, and
experience necessary to create a perfect learning environment. Mark is an
avatar of that vision. Having his knowledge and experience leading a class
like PHP 5 Bootcamp, one of our most popular classes, makes manifest the
Big Nerd Ranch teaching philosophy.”

Mark will guide students through the fundamentals of the PHP language,
covering variables and constants, arrays, control structures and functions.
Building on those basic principles, students will be engaged in building
dynamic websites with an overview of web forms and email, scripting
libraries, relational databases, and editing and publishing content.
Security issues, as well, will be covered from basic functionalities as
users and passwords, to cookies, session variables and design and interface
challenges. Students will also cover advanced level issues such as
integrating PHP 5 with CSS, XML, images, and PDFs.
