NetTuts.com continues its "Building Your Startup with PHP" series today in this latest post enhancing the application and allowing the user to add a meeting.
This tutorial is part of the Building Your Startup With PHP series on Tuts+. In this series, I'm guiding you through launching a startup from concept to reality using my Meeting Planner app as a real life example. Every step along the way, we'll release the Meeting Planner code as open source examples you can learn from. We'll also address startup-related business issues as they arise. All of the code for Meeting Planner is written in the Yii2 Framework for PHP.
In this new post (one of four that will deal with adding a meeting) they start by creating the initial meeting listing page that includes a description, last update date and icons linking to actions to perform on that meeting. Next up they create the "Create Meeting" form and the functionality behind the scenes to make it work. This includes some alerting functionality as well. Next is the functionality to invite people to the meetings, using autocomplete handling to make it easier to locate individuals. Following this they include code to add locations (integrating Google Maps), assigning a meeting time and adding additional notes.
