This session is the first in a series of sessions that will look at the practical aspects of building a php app.
Each new session will expand on the previous one with new features to our demo app being created.
In this first session then, to get up and running…
Talk 1 - Get Off MAMP / XAMPP
Covering the BASICS of setting up a local development environment using Vagrant. (www.vagrantup.com) a working vagrant file will be available at the end for you to use on your own projects.
Talk 2 - PHPBelfast Framework Evolution
In a previous talk, we created a simple framework of components (https://github.com/phpbelfast/phpbelfast-framework) using Slim, Smarty and Redbean.
This time, we’ll review what we did before, and switch out a few components and tidy things up a bit. We’ll also add a vagrant config to the project for our local development.
Yes.. it’s very much like the one we did before, but it’s the basis for a series of talks. So we need to start at the beginning.
Obviously, there are a lot of options for both front and back end, for this series of talks, we’ll be using Bootstrap & jQuery on the front end and the backend will use PHP 5.4+, MySQL and the evolving PHPBelfast Framework which is underpinned by “Slim”
Any code examples used in the talks will be made available for download via our github.
As always, there will be an opportunity to network, and talk shop both between talks and afterwards, we would encourage you to hang around for that.
