The goal for students on the intermediate PHP and MySQL course that I’m running for IWA/HWG is to create a working shopping cart. The course starts in only three days, and I decided I’d better walk the walk and prove I could do it. So I have quickly mocked up a working version of the cart they are expected to build and put it online here. I think it will be helpful to students to see what they are aiming at, and it will make it easier for them to work out the logic if they can click through a real example. The design may not win any prizes, but the basics are all there.
All course materials now written and double-checked, quiz questions written and checked, SQL scripts generated and tested … just need to put week one’s materials up now!
