The Top 3 Reasons to Learn PHP?

July 10, 2006

With so many web programming languages (frameworks) out there today, it’s hard to settle on which one to use … even for experienced programmers.

Here is just a sample of the choices you have:

  1. PHP
  2. JSP/Servlets
  3. Ruby on Rails
  4. PERL
  5. Classic ASP
  6. ASP.net
  7. ColdFusion
  8. Web Objects

Instead of trying to fill up space with clever nerd-drivel, I am going to get to the point.

Here are the top 3 reasons to go with PHP:

  1. PHP is ubiquitous (that means everywhere).
  2. PHP is powerful.
  3. PHP is free.

Nothing is perfect (and that includes PHP,) but I think that the above three things make PHP the best web programming language out there today.
