PHP is the stepping stone to your first professional development gigs.  

PHP is the most popular back end language on the web.

Companies like Facebook and Tumblr use PHP as their primary back end coding language. It's in universal demands, and, as a new developer you're expected to know you're way around the front end and the back end. That's where PHP comes in.

There was a time when a web developer could get away with knowing just HTML and some Javascript-- but now as employers are looking for more value, you have to know more. PHP lets you access an entire world of backend databases, like mySQL which is introduced in this course.

FACT: With PHP knowledge you'll be able to complete more advanced projects and be more employable.

People ask all the time: What's the best past to becoming a professional developer?

People going in to web development need two types of technical knowledge. First, they need to know how to manipulate content in a browser. That's where HTML5 and Javascript come in. But they also need to be able to interact with backend systems-- like eCommerce systems, databases and content management systems.

With PHP, developers:
●      Create systems by which data can be stored and retrieved in a database
●      Interact with eCommerce systems facilitating sales, credit card processing and shipping all over the world
●      Create complex content and customer management systems customized for industry use.
●      Create plugins and customizations for the most the most popular content management systems in the world-- Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla (all of which are written in PHP!)
