When something has to become interactive

Nowadays, normal websites aren't enough. They need to be interactive, and this is what this project was about. We were supposed to create a new website, that would act as a blog. It would be our introduction into the world of PHP and MySQL and teach us programming for the web and interacting with a database.

In this particular project, the assignment consisted of designing and developing an online blog which would allow the user to upload a blog post and have it show up on the front page.

Selling a product to an audience without money...

During this project, I was alone, which meant that I had full control over everything going on. This was a true blessing because I had full creative control and overhead.

My Reflection

I learned through this project, how to design a database, set it up, develop a website with PHP and have it dynamically update content. I also learned about form validation and file upload, and how to protect the database and website from SQL and HTML injections.

I am very satisfied with the final product.
