Design for Digital Media Environments – Codecademy Practice

In preparation for the next unit, I have decided to go over what we’ve already learned about PHP, a scripting language for designing websites. I decided to use Codecademy to revise what we had done, as well as practise using the code a bit more. Codecademy has been very useful for revising and catching up with what we’ve done in the recent workshops, as it’s free to use and easy to follow. It also has a wide range of courses for different coding languages (e.g. HTML, JavaScript and jQuery). Our upcoming unit, “Design for Digital Media Environments”, will focus almost exclusively on coding, creating and programming websites and databases.

As shown in the screenshots below, I have also been experimenting with the different functions and variables that can be used with PHP (e.g. “echo” and “string”).

At any time, you can preview the results of the code you’ve written.
