    Quality and price

    Because it provides quality programming solutions, most of the resources are free that is why it's usage is widely spread so it is easy to learn some fundamental features very quickly...

    Still all these pros are also cons to a certain point because many people call them selves PHP programmers and that's why salaries for intermediate PHP programmers are usually lower than for programmers who work in other programming languages...

    • PHP reduces the lines of code drastically. This helps the quality assurance team when the testing process is done.
    • The applications are safe and secure like never before.
    • The websites built using PHP increase performance and promises to be reliable and user friendly.
    • PHP being an open source language is a huge advantage. This reduces cost and time to build an application or a website.
    • Websites built using PHP not only helps the developers, but also the owners. The site is easy to maintain and further enhancements can be implemented since the language PHP uses is of international standards.

    PHP is a server side scripting language which helps to create dynamic web pages, PHP is object oriented programming language so if you have knowledge of oops than it is easy to learn PHP. Almost open source CMS are work with PHP so with the knowledge of PHP you can work with different CMS like Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal and also with some open source CMS like Magento, OsCommerce

    PHP is open source language which is freely available and easy to learn and useful to create most functional dynamic web pages. PHP can easily integrate with MySql database and there are many frameworks available in PHP language by using of those frameworks user can easily create web pages with PHP language.

    In the survey of W3 Tech as of March 2012, PHP is the top programming language for website with a total of 77.4% market share. I list some advantages of PHP, which could be the reasons why it's unbeatable until now...

    1. It's an Open source programming language.
    2. Easy to learn.
    3. So many tutorials available on the internet.
    4. It is supported by almost all major operating systems and web servers.
    5. It's free and offers advanced features.
    6. It can be easily deployed.

    In the future we will program websites with C++. Actually we can do this now but there is no specific editors for it so this is very complex - that's why PHP was created. Only huge, major websites use this solution in some cases, for most webmasters this is luxury and 'sci-fi'. But when pro web editors start support C++ in webdesign people will use it for complex websites with huge bandwith.
    But such web editor would cost a fortune because such solutions are very rare and extremely high level.
