PHP Workshop

PHP Workshop

This was a full day session in September of 2016 where the students brought their laptops to a lab and connect to an IBM i LPAR running PHP in the cloud. The workshop included four presentations with four corresponding hands-on lab sections covering all of the fundamentals of PHP like variable use, arrays, function declarations and calls and more. As IBM i is a significant part of our goals in these discussions we explored the use of the new Open Source toolkit for calling RPG programs and CL Commands as well as database access using DB2 and MySQL. We will also explored the Object Oriented model of PHP.
