Goals for the class:
- Learn the very basics of PHP and server-side programming on the iSchool server.
Goal: to translate previous code example to what you see at http://people.ischool.berkeley.edu/~rdhyee/flickrsearch.php — which has a form that prompts user for a tag and then returns photos in HTML, specifically thumbnails with links back to the photo.
The conceptual foundations behind CGI are very much part of the architecture of PHP. I’d like to add some references on CGI:
- O’Reilly: News — Why Learn CGI?
- Common Gateway Interface – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Introduction to The Common Gateway Interface is a good intro from the University of Toronto. See especially the data flow diagram:
- CGI Programming 101 – Learn CGI Today! is an overview of CGI in Perl
- CGI Programming on the World Wide Web is out of print but available online.
- Tips for convenient CGI scripting is a good overview of CGI.pm
