In this session we’ll be building a PHP+MySQL application that uses the
Twitter API and has some AJAX fun with it.

You’ll also get a chance to see what it’s like to build an application in a PHP IDE like NetBeans. Those of you who use ‘vi’ might want to see how the other half lives, and scoff at us under your breath. Or you may actually get turned on to the power of a good IDE and realize hey, I could use some of that.

In this session we will be demonstrating

- Building a PHP+MySQL+web services+AJAX application in NetBeans
- Using the Twitter search API
- Using AJAX-based graphing tools to provide dynamic graphing to your application

Don’t know why people only gave 3 stars. It is one of the most useful sessions I attended in this conference. It is clear, organized and useful.
