First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your decision to learn one of the easiest yet powerful programming languages available – PHP.
Web Developers use PHP to create interactive, dynamic websites while making it easy to update and maintain, not to mention, prompt your visitors to purchase, join a list or even tell a friend.
What is PHP And Why Should I Learn It?
PHP has been around for over 12 years, first coming onto the scene in 1995 by a freelance software developer, Rasmus Lerdorf. He initially used PHP by creating a script that retained a log of all of the visitors that landed on his web page.
His script would feature information on how many visits his site received and other detailed information about his website stats.
As you can imagine, It didn’t take long before he started to receive emails and messages asking how he was able to do this, and because of the overwhelming interest in his scripts, he worked to develop PHP into what is now one of the most popular and widely used programming languages on the Internet.
Throughout the years, I have seen a number of webmasters ask the question as to why they should learn PHP. In truth, there are so many benefits to learning how to implement the power of PHP into your websites that a list of potential uses would take up this ebook alone. From managing pages and updating websites quickly, to creating commercial scripts for profit, the sky is truly the limit.
Think of all your fav favourite sites, WordPress, Paypal, eBay or perhaps FaceBook.
They all use the power of PHP to make their website run smoothly and efficiently.
