PHP5 Bootcamp is an intensive 5-day training class specifically designed to provide students with immediate PHP proficiency.
Even with the best-written books, you could spend months learning how to take full advantage of PHP5, or you can come to the Big Nerd Ranch and spend one week in intense, effective training that leaves you ready to apply our proven techniques to your own programming problems. We study language basics (variables, arrays, and functions), database interactions (MySQL and PostgreSQL), modular design techniques, third-party frameworks (PDF, GD, and PEAR), and related web technologies (CSS, XML, Web Services, and Ajax). And bring your own project -- our knowledgeable and experienced instructor (Mark Fenoglio) will help you meet your specific design challenges!
The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of $3500 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and transportation to and from the Atlanta airport. Students are encouraged to bring independent projects to class, allowing for input from classmates and individual instructor attention.
