Dynamic and responsive websites are the foundation of the modern world. This course is designed to have you master the techniques to build technically complex websites that respond and tailor to a user.
For example, web and mobile services such as Whatsapp and Facebook use dynamic, database-driven systems to load a users messages and newsfeed. They change their layout and display to respond to the size of a user's mobile device screen.

Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:
Establishing the Link
We reintroduce the PHP language and quickly clear up all the concepts we should know at this stage. We then delve into how we can set up web servers using PHP to begin creating websites, utilising the power of MySQL to effectively and practically store and retrieve permanent data from our code, culminating in a project to create our very own functional website.
Rounding the Edges
We start learning how to improve the structure of our databases and code behind our website, allowing us to extract more useful information out of our database tables, and use common statements with even greater ease. We also look at creating a more dynamic, engrossing experience for our users by allowing them to register on our websites, and use all these skills in another project to build an even more advanced website.

Dynamic web development is an exciting field. Our most loved social applications like Twitter and Instagram are example of applications that are developed using By taking this course you will equip yourself to develop applications like these.
Prior programming experience requirements
- You’re required to complete the PHP programming essentials course prior to enrollment into Certified Database Developer
- You are motivated to learn and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.
- You have no problems communicating fluently in English.
- Sound programming skills
- Experience with back-end scripting language. PHP is preferred
Equipment and Technologies
- Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection.*
- We will be using a text editor to write scripts, and a terminal to interface with MySQL and Apache, so no special requirements are needed except for those required by these applications above
- An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.
*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
Hyperion is happy to work with your employer to support them paying for your enrolment of this course.
