Program Meeting: A PHP Primer For Technical Writers

March 2006 Program Meeting: A PHP Primer For Technical Writers

PHP is a popular open-source, cross-platform, easy-to-learn, and extendable programming language that allows web developers to create dynamic content that interacts with databases. In recent years, PHP has edged out Microsoft’s proprietary ASP as a server-scripting technology. Homepages, database front-ends on the web, command line shell scripts where you want extra functionality, and even basic GUI development can all be implemented with PHP.

At the Canada West Coast STC’s March program meeting, we learned about the important role PHP plays in web technology and how technical communicators can benefit from learning this language.

Web developer Peter Gordon is a board member of the Vancouver PHP Users Association, which holds monthly meetings on topics of interest to the web development community. He has been developing PHP sites for over 5 years. Some of Peter’s recent sites include The Take, HoweStreet.com and 12midnite.com.
