PHP Development

Advantages of PHP for the development of applications and websites

PHP is a widely used programming language for the development of dynamic web pages. Unlike what happens in a static page, where the content that is displayed is always predetermined, in the dynamic pages the content is generated at the moment of the visualization, from variable data. For example, a shopping website can sort and filter a list of products based on the preferences specified by the user. On a static page, on the other hand, it would be practically impossible to generate that variety of visualization modalities.

The interactive possibilities of PHP find application in forums, blogs, e-commerce portals and any site that requires interacting with databases, since it offers a perfect integration with MySQL and Oracle, among other systems. That is why it can be useful to develop administrative, commercial and management programs. It also facilitates the editing of web pages: content management systems such as WordPress and Joomla offer the user a friendly interface through which they can modify PHP documents without directly accessing the server. In recent years the use of this language has become very common for the development of applications on the APIs of Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, Google Maps and other services.

PHP works on virtually every imaginable platform and guarantees a high speed of execution, in addition to excellent stability. Its security is reinforced by the fact that the original code remains hidden from the user: the browser executes it and shows it "translated" into HTML. Unlike other languages ​​(like ASP, Microsoft) is free and open source. And thanks to a huge community of developers worldwide, it has extensive documentation. Versatile, efficient, free and cross-platform, PHP is still the most used option when it comes to generating software solutions for the Internet.
