What IS PHP?

PHP is a open source, interpreted and object-oriented scripting language i.e. executed at server side. It is used to develop web applications (an application i.e. executed at server side and generates dynamic page).

  • PHP is a server side scripting language.
  • PHP is an interpreted language, i.e. there is no need for compilation.
  • PHP is an object-oriented language.
  • PHP is an open-source scripting language.
  • PHP is simple and easy to learn language.

History of PHP

The innovative mind of Rasmus Lerdorf began writing a series of Common Gateway Interface Perl Scripts, which led to the development of PHP around 1994.

In order to view the development of PHP the timeline gives us the brief view:

1995 : Lerdorf announced the release of PHP which was formally called as Personal Home Page Tools (PHP tools).

1997-2006 : There were various releases but no development in the language.

2009 : There was a stable release which involved only Security fixes and included features such as namespace support, late static bindings, jump labels, native closures.

2012-13 : The developments were “Bugs and Security Fixes”.

2014 : It will include future releases and will include various innovative features.

The universality of the language can be credited to the coders that made changes and additions to the software that allowed it to use as script processor. Currently PHP is on update process with PHP 5.3 being the current version and most up to date software available.

Benefits of PHP

• PHP is open source and free.
• Short learning curve compared to other languages such as JSP, ASP etc.
• Large community document
• Most web hosting servers support PHP by default unlike other languages such as ASP that need IIS. This makes PHP a cost effective choice.
• Other benefit that you get with PHP is that it’s a server side scripting language; this means you only need to install it on the server and client computers requesting for resources from the server do not need to have PHP installed; only a web browser would be enough.
• PHP has in built support for working hand in hand with MySQL; this doesn’t mean you can’t use PHP with other database management systems. You can still use PHP with

  • Postgres
  • Oracle
  • MS SQL Server
  • ODBC etc.
• PHP is cross platform; this means you can deploy your application on a number of different operating systems such as windows, Linux, Mac OS etc.


Web development is on the peak, and one can find small, mid-sized web development companies to big names of IT Industry in this niche from BM, Google, Microsoft, Appl Many Indian engineers are working as PHP developer, in some of the top global IT firms but more than that are working in big as well as small IT companies which are ruling the world from India and providing offshore design and development solution to global companies.e etc.

More frequent designations for which Php developers are hired nowadays includes:

Companies using PHP

The best example that I, and probably everyone else, will come up with – Facebook. Since its inception, Facebook has been coded in PHP. Many people look down on PHP because of problems with its syntax and efficiency, and Facebook understands this. The only reason why Facebook continues to develop in PHP is for legacy reasons; to transition to a different programming language, like node.js, Django, or Ruby on Rails, would require a ton of time and effort as well as marginal benefit/cost.

Other companies using PHP include Google, Yahoo, Rediff, Intel, Zynga, Flickr, Wikimedia, Digg, YouTube, etc. For most of these companies, especially the first few, only a couple of apps are done in entirely PHP. The web definitely is not heading in the direction of PHP despite its some benefits, so I would be cautious in choosing a programming language for your relevant web application or startup.
