PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
An Introduction to PHP

This informal talk will introduce you to the main concepts behind using the PHP scripting language. PHP is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. This session will offer a few basic examples that give a flavor of what can be accomplished with PHP. We will touch lightly on basic syntax, variables, functions and control structures, as well as dealing with forms, but we won't explore any of these issues in depth. We will not even pretend to cover installation, security, database connectivity, or any of the other myriad subjects that would require far more time than this brief session will allow; however, if there is sufficient interest, these topics could be addressed in a future session.
