Hello list members,

The Fuse Factory is offering a couple of PHP workshops that may be of 
interest to some of you. Here is the information for the first one, 
which is being held this Sunday, Nov. 8th from 1-4pm:

Location: Wild Goose Creative (2491 Summit Street, Columbus OH - 
directions and parking)
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Workshop level: Intermediate
Instructor: Jason Gonzales
Cost: $25

Students will learn how to make a simple (and geeky!) text-based 
adventure game and in the process learn some essential PHP programming.

To benefit from this workshop, students should have a basic knowledge 
of the following:

* XHTML 1.0 (Understanding of basic tags such as body, h1, div, p, ul, 
li and input elements)
* CSS 2 (Understanding basic styling such as font, color, padding, 
* How to use a plain text editor to write code. We will go over how to 
use an editor such as Komodo Edit, which will aid you with code hints 
and keeping code clean
* Some knowledge of how the internet works, specifically that fact that 
a user’s computer connects to server over the internet, and that the 
server “serves” up a website

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop with the 
following applications:

* Text editor, preferably one with code hinting like Komodo Edit or Coda
* Firefox
* Firebug
* WAMP (or MAMP for Mac users)
* Wireless connection optional but nice to have

Participants are also encouraged to bring paper & pencil for notes and 
“sketching” the flow of your adventure.
