Perfect Guide to PHP
What is PHP? Remember the black and white world? Monotony could lead the readers to doze even
before completing the task! When internet came into being, websites were very monotonous and did
not show any motion. But later on, PHP technology evolved and it gave motion and colors to break the
tyranny of motionless web pages. In this article we would be talking about what is PHP and how does it
help us in developing a better and larger mass of customers.
Initially when it came in 1995, PHP stood for ‘Personal Home Page’. And later on it was turned to
‘Hypertext Preprocessor’. PHP is server side scripting language used for creating dynamic and more
interactive web pages. It is a widely-used, open-source, general-purpose scripting language. It is
generally easier to learn than other programming languages like C, ASP or ASP.net.
It became a robust language with time bringing up other new changes in coding languages. PHP's
primarily is used as an ‘Embedded’ scripting language, which means that the actual PHP code is
embedded in HTML code. This means that PHP enables your web server to process web pages before
they are displayed in the user's web browser. It is popular because it can be embedded directly into
HTML coding. And there is a good benefit that we do not need to worry about which server to use, PHP
can be used on all major operating systems and is supported on most web servers. The latest version of
PHP is a very useful because it is a language which can be used for web programming much like Java and
Microsoft C#. With PHP, It is very easy to write simple scripts which allow your Web site to interact with
a database without any crash or other server related problems. Taking PHP code as input and creating
Web pages as output, you can simultaneously use it as command-line scripting and client-side GUI
It is a very versatile and comparatively simple language. As you would be requiring only a text editor to
work on PHP. You can make HTML Web Forms, Remember Web site visitors (cookies and sessions)
,Work with Arrays, Work with Files (File Management and downloads),Store Information in Databases,
Parsing and Generating XML (also useful for large quantities of products on e-commerce), Check which
browser your visitor is using! All of this is possible with PHP.
PHP works in very few simple steps:
Derives its power by "preprocessing" hypertext on the server side.
PHP script saved as a .php file runs on your web server,
.PHP file performs the programmed actions, and returns HTML code to the customer's web browser.
And the remains invisible, so it is security packed too.
Knowing all this, the next question which pops up in mind is where to find a well honed PHP developer
from. And a viable answer would be from India. There is a huge talent pool in India according to the R&D
done, and they are ready to practice and in fact display their talent to the fullest, if opportunity
