The world of the Internet is a fast changing and complex world. But in fact, everything is based upon the simple principle of sending a request and receiving a response. In this workshop, we will guide you through the basics of the Internet using a PHP framework named Silex. With Silex, you can build a simple application in a very short time. The use of a framework greatly reduces the time spent on coding. PHP Leuven will explain everything in this first workshop on the Web Development Track.
