This week has primarily been watching online courses about PHP. I have been teached in the fundamentals of PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor). PHP is commonly used by people who want to build a simple, dynamic website quickly and effortlessly. Since its debut in 1995, it’s become an extremely popular choice for web developers. So popular, in fact, that roughly 80% of all websites use it now, including many Fortune 500 companies and top technology startups. By the end of this track, you’ll have basic programming knowledge to build your first PHP websites.

The online courses this has been teaching me from 0 to beginner. I have build a simple website using the PHP programming language. The web site, is a media library, that will let you organize and display your Books, Movies and Music. You could easily use this project to create a website that lets you organize and display any type of item: Branch Locations, Products, Services, Events or Courses.

PO Meeting

We also paid our PO a visit. He showed us the cashier where the current POS is installed as well as the printers we should use for printing receipt when the customer makes an order or payment.

It was a good meeting where we got an understanding of what is need to have and what is nice to have. Also i learned a bit more about how the business model for his restaurant is put together. This gives me more insights in how to build the application to best meed his needs for running an entire restaurant.
