PHP web development

What is PHP web Development?

PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

Okay, so that's the technical term for PHP, more simply put it is a coding tool used to create HTML. PHP differs from client-side JavaScript due to that the code is executed on the server, generating HTML which is then sent to the client. The client would receive the results of running that script, but would not know what the underlying code was. You can even configure your web server to process all your HTML files with PHP.

Do I need a PHP developer or is it possible to create my own website?

PHP is simple enough to allow a newcomer to use its basic functions to create a website. For an experienced developer, however, PHP offers many advanced features.

Despite the fact that PHP web development is focused on server-side scripting, it can do much more.

A professional PHP developer at Techvisionsolution can use PHP for:

  • Server-side scripting. This is the most traditional and main target field for PHP. This is the aspect of PHP which may not need technical know-how as only three things are needed to make this work: the PHP parser, a web server and a web browser.
  • Command line scripting. You can make a PHP script to run it without any server or browser.
  • Writing desktop applications. Even though this is not its most popular use, PHP can be utilized to create a desktop application with a graphical user interface, a PHP developer can add some advanced PHP features to your client-side applications.
  • PHP can be used on all major operating systems, including Linux, many Unix variants (including HP-UX, Solaris and OpenBSD), Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, RISC OS, and probably others. PHP has also support for most of the web servers today.
  • PHP's abilities includes outputting images, PDF files and even Flash movies (using libswf and Ming) generated on the fly. PHP can auto-generate these files, and save them in the file system, forming a server-side cache for your dynamic content.
  • PHP web development's most significant features is its support for a wide range of databases.

At Techvisionsolutions a PHP developer will help you take advantage of all PHP has to offer.
