Great websites are like magic. They make everything seem effortless. The truth is, a team of people spent a great deal of time writing every line of code: the programmers. If you're here, it's probably because you want to be one of them. Good move. This course moves beyond what you've learned already to teach you all about database-driven web application development using PHP and MySQL. Specific topics include how to create databases, tables, indexes and storage procedures, how to manage users, replicate tables and other geeky stuff. By the end of this course you'll be able to create PHP-based web applications that persist data to and retrieve data from a MySQL database. Pretty awesome, right?
