Which PHP Coding Style Should IBM i Programmers Use?
Hosted by COMMON

PHP is a great choice for IBM i web application development because it's a powerful, open-source language and relatively easy for RPG programmers to learn. There are three PHP coding styles to consider: procedural, object-oriented (OO) and model-view-controller (MVC). Each style has different benefits and varying degrees of difficulty so it's important to choose the right approach when you get started.

Join Duncan Kenzie, Chief Knowledge Officer for BCD and Quadrant Software, for this webinar where he'll discuss:

  • The similarities and differences between each PHP coding style
  • When - and why - you should consider advancing to OO or MVC
  • The best approach for RPG programmers

In the second half of this presentation, Marcel Sarrasin, Director of Marketing for BCD and Quadrant Software, will show you how WebSmart's PHP templates speed up development for each coding approach.
