This is a full day session where the students bring their own laptops and connect to an IBM i LPAR running PHP in the cloud. The workshop includes 4 presentations with 4 corresponding 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 discussion we will explore 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 explore the Object Oriented model of PHP.
** As noted above, this full day session requires attendees to bring their own laptops. Before the workshop on Monday, June 5th, it would be best to have Zend Studio installed on participants’ laptops. Zend Studio can be downloaded here: Download Zend Studio Here
