Learning PHP

Posted on March 28, 2016 at 10:23 pm

PHP is a programming language that a lot of software and websites are designed with. It has a wide range of functionalities and is compatible across multiple platforms. It is also what’s known as open source, meaning that you do not have to pay to use PHP.

When learning a programming language it is often said to being similar to learning a new spoken language. Once you can understand the reasons behind it, it becomes much easier. The code for a website example is often made up of multiple parts such as the HTML, PHP, CSS and JavaScript. All of these work together to output what you see on the screen. If there is a calculator on there for example then the titles, labels etc will be created by HTML and styled by CSS. The PHP or Javascript is often responsible for doing the actual maths behind the calculation.

If you are looking at going into computer or website programming then having experience with PHP is definitely an advantage.
