PHP & MySQL
LAMP TRAINING, FACILITATING ZEND CERTIFICATION
PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that
is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded
PHP is the Web development language written by and for Web
developers. PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. The
product was originally named Personal Home Page Tools, and many
people still think that's what the acronym stands for. But as it
expanded in scope, a new and more appropriate (albeit GNU-ishly
recursive) name was selected by community vote. PHP is currently
in its fifth major rewrite, called PHP5 or just plain PHP.
PHP is a server-side scripting language, which can be
embedded in HTML or used as a standalone binary (although the
former use is much more common). Proprietary products in this
niche are Microsoft's Active Server Pages, Macromedia's
ColdFusion, and Sun's Java Server Pages. Some tech journalists
used to call PHP 'the open source ASP' because its functionality
is similar to that of the Microsoft productâ€”although this
formulation was misleading, as PHP was developed before ASP.
Over the past few years, however, PHP and server-side Java have
gained momentum, while ASP has lost mindshare, so this
comparison no longer seems appropriate.
Zend Certifications set the industry standard for PHP
certifications, recognizing outstanding expertise and delivering
a measure of distinction for PHP 5 and Zend Framework
developers. PHP training at IPSR enables you to appear for the
covetted Zend Certification exam.
