Training Videos

The "Basic Training" videos below will help you to get started and understand the basic concepts of Phreeze. It is recommended that you watch them in sequence. Each one will assume that you understand the concepts presented in the previous videos. After the Basic Training videos, more specific and advanced topics are covered which do not need to be viewed in any particular order. However most of the advanced videos will assume that you have a solid grasp of all Phreeze basics.

Basic Training

Basic Training 1: File Structure

This video explains the basic file structure of a Phreeze application, including the location of configuration files that you will likely need to edit.

Basic Training 2: Routes & Controllers

This video explains how to user routes to connect a URL with a method inside a controller class. Additionally it explains how to read variables in the URL and from the querystring.

Basic Training 3: Models

A model is an object-oriented representation of database record. This video explains how to read and write records to the database in your Phreeze application.

Basic Training 4: Views

Views are the visual layout and display of your application. This video shows how to assign values to the view layer and render output to the browser.

Basic Training 5: Reporters

Reporters are a feature of Phreeze that allow you to map an arbitrary SQL query to an object. If you need to display queries with complex joins or aggregate queries, reporters are an efficient way to retrieve data.

SQL Query Debugging

This video demonstrates how to observe and adjust various SQL queries that are generated by Phreeze. In order to create apps that will scale it's critical to understand how the framework is interacting with the database. After watching this video you will be able to debug queries in your own Phreeze application.

Download the Cargo Database to generate the sample app.

Example: Many-To-Many Joins

Video coming soon... This example code demonstrates how to work with many-to-many joins in your application. Additionally it shows how to debug your SQL queries in order to keep them efficient.

Example: CriteriaFilter

This example code demonstrates how to use the CriteriaFilter to search for a value across multiple columns (for example - where name like '%phreeze%' or company like '%phreeze%'). The CriteriaFilter class can also be extended to allow custom SQL filtering.

Download the ReporterCriteria Source Code for an example of a Reporter with a custom Criteria class.

Example: Facebook Auth Part 1

This video demonstrates how to create a Phreeze application that uses Facebook for authentication. Part 1 explains how to install and test the example app.

Example: Facebook Auth Part 2

This video is a continuation of the Facebook Authentication Example. Part 2 is a debugger runthough of the code. This example contains a lot of advanced information about Phreeze authentication in general.
