Interaction and usability is a common goal when creating a website. When building a site with PHP, this is no different. PHP provides predefined variables to manage data in order to make websites useful and interactive. In this course, we are going to learn how to handle general data and data from a user input. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include form processing, website cookies, persistent data, and file uploads. By the end of this course, you'll have increased your understanding of the PHP programming language, and will have an added knowledge of creating more interactive websites using the PHP predefined variables. Before beginning the course, you should have a working knowledge of the PHP programming language and a solid understanding of associative arrays. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn these predefined variables, with the PHP Predefined Variables course, at Pluralsight.
