PostgreSQL 9 with PHP Essential Training

4h 45m – Beginner

In this course, author Bill Weinman shows how to architect PostgreSQL databases and integrate them into web applications using PHP. The course covers the basics of creating tables, storing data with data types, and working with expressions, operators, and strings. The course also explores the differences between the PDO and pgsql interfaces and demonstrates managing a database in PHP.

Topics include:
Installing PostgreSQL
Understanding database architecture
Inserting, updating, and deleting data in a table
Creating a database library
Indexing ID fields
Storing numbers, text, and Boolean values
Reading data
Using casts to force type
Using mathematical functions
Concatenating strings
