Creating a static website and updating it manually may not be a difficult task for most people after acquiring the basic skills. But when it comes to web pages that contain more advanced features such as message board, discussion forum, product query and member login capabilities, the dynamic part comes into play and you need to grasp further concepts and skills before you can make your website work dynamically and interactively.
A dynamic website can change its content dynamically to meet the user’s needs and provide relevant information, such as text, images and other data, by accessing information in a connected database. Dynamic web pages are controlled by computer programs. Every time the website manager adds an article, graphic, product, or news to the site, it will automatically appear in the places it is supposed to. A dynamic website has a high degree of functionality and is indispensable in enabling e-commerce.
In this course you will learn to develop database-driven dynamic websites using PHP and MySQL, which are popular tools employed in the development of many powerful websites including Facebook and Youtube.
On course completion, participants are able to use Dreamweaver to create dynamic websites that are capable of using forms to access data sources, generating emails, incorporating member login, and creating dynamic contents by retrieving required graphic and text data from databases.
