Contact drop your question in BarcampPP group: barcampphnompenh@googlegroups.com


Google Hangout (you can be physically wherever you like, as long as you have your laptop and an Internet connection.) You can go to inSTEDD in Phnom Penh or Kinyei in Battambang too, if that works best for you.



Opening session: Sunday 20th Jan 10:00 to 11:00 AM

During the week: “Easy” activity

Closing session:  Sunday 27th Jan 10:00 to 11:00 AM



Many of your tasks when running a Website are repetitive. Why not get scripts to get it done for you?

During the opening Hangout, you will see examples of how PHP and cron can work together to make your life easier. You’ll also be taken through a simple scripting example so you can see how it’s done.

During the week between the 2 Hangouts you will be encouraged to create your own simple example of a PHP/cron script. (If you don’t know PHP, don’t worry – just come up with an automated task idea for your situation.)

During the closing Hangout we’ll look at your creations and give suggestions and feedback. There will be a Question & Answer session where you can clear any doubts you have about this.


Suitable for

Those with some knowledge of PHP. But it will not be very technical and if you want to find out what can be automated on a Website, you are more than welcome to join in!
