This is a full-day lab allowing students to either bring their own laptops or use National University's workstations to 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 including variable use, arrays, function declarations, calls and more. As the IBM i is a significant part of our goals in these discussions, 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. An optional lab feature on mobile development can be added for die-hards!
