Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Christian Wenz, and welcome to my course, Implementing Forms in PHP. I'm an independent developer and architect and support many companies in everything web, including web performance and web application security. Forms are arguably the most important aspect of many web applications because that's how users may really interact with the server, apart from just clicking on links. This course is a thorough introduction to using forms with PHP. We will cover all relevant form field types and how to handle the data in them with PHP. Some of the major topics that we will cover include HTTP and HTTP verbs, accessing form field data with PHP, validating and prefilling form fields, and handling file uploads with PHP. By the end of this course, you will know your way around HTML form handling with PHP. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of PHP. My PHP: Getting Started course is a good start. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn PHP form handling with the Implementing Forms in PHP course, at Pluralsight.
