Free August Online Workshop: PHP

With August drawing to a close and school just around the corner, it may feel like summer is over.  Unless, of course, you’re an iD Tech Camps student.  For that exclusive group, the fun of summer camp extends all year round.

How?  iD’s free online workshops!

Every month, iD students registered for the current season and alumni of the previous season get exclusive access to a series of free online workshops.  The workshops allow students to keep up the skills they learned at camp and explore new STEM technology directions, all with the guidance of a live iD instructor.  The free workshops have been offered since the fall of 2009, and past topics have covered everything from video game design to Android apps and web design.

For August 2011, the workshop offered covers the basics of PHP, one of the most common web scripting languages used today.  A live instructor will run the online workshop, starting with an overview of the subject, continuing on to demonstrate PHP techniques, and closing with a Q&A opportunity.

All workshops are held on Saturdays, and students interested participating must RSVP to by the Friday the week prior to the workshop.  To see updated information on what free online workshops are coming up, visit the Year-Round Learning page.

Still worried about summer camp withdrawals?  Check out for another cool way to extend the iD experience.  The new subscription service will launch in November, but you can take a sneak peek now!
