In this code we are checking for query string "artistfamilye" if it exists then assigning value to a variable else assigning null to that variable and we are using ternary operator to assign different value based on isset function result.

isset function returns true is variable is defined and false if variable is not defined;

This statement is called a ternary conditional statement. It is equivalent to:
if (isset($_GET["artistfamilye"]) ) {
    $code = $_GET['artistfamilye'];
} else {
    $code = null;
}
