I moved away from Java years ago because PHP was clearly the language to get into … and that’s because:
- PHP is the most popular database driven language today and many of the Web’s top projects are built using PHP. This includes WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many forums and shopping carts. If you know PHP, you will be able to work with these much more easily.
- PHP hosting is super common and cheap. Enough said.
- PHP runs fast, is easy to learn and you can find good PHP programmers more easily than say Java or Ruby programmers. Why? There are just a lot more to choose from.
That’s why we teach PHP and make it a priority in our training courses – we like to stay practical.
