Instructions for Server Side App Development Workshop

Hello Friends,

Server side development is basically building an application or software that runs on server, we also call it as back-end.

Similarly, when we open a website or an mobile application, the screen ( including buttons, menus, options etc. ) with which we interact is called as front-end.

So, In this session we will be talking about building application for back-end, and for that we will be using PHP and Node. Js programming language.

Before you come to the workshop, we want everyone to install some prerequisite software, so that you can understand better in the workshop.
