This course explores the concepts and principles behind dynamic content on the web. It is a hands-on introduction to server-side web programming, using PHP and mySQL; through which students will learn the framework for storing, managing and retrieving data.  Throughout the class we will focus on creating cohesive websites and applications with effective information architecture, user interface design and useability.  The goal is to enable students to create work related to their long-term goals and interests. Along with weekly instruction in class, students will leave with a larger understanding to research, test and develop new ideas.
