The Atlanta Linux General Store has offered to host our website and we are
working out the details of a coursework/curriculum that will be offered
regarding PHP and open source databases.
Also specific club project details are being worked out such that many of the
libraries available for use with PHP, MYSQL & PostgreSQL will be studied for
Certainly the administrative, shopping cart, forum discussion, classifieds, and
graphics libraries will be looked at.
If anyone has any current PHP projects underway please let me know.
