Why PHP Development?

PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is one of the first server languages that could be embedded in HTML. Since its release in 1994, it remains one of the most popular open-source scripting languages, used by nearly 80% of all websites. What can developers do with PHP? Well, you better ask: What can’t they do?

If you’re a beginner and would like to become a PHP developer, this course will help you learn how to build high-quality server-side applications and think like a professional developer. By the end, you’ll have the portfolio and interview skills you need to start your new career.
