Introduction to PHP

PHP is an acronym for “Hypertext Processor”

Similar to any other staple scripting language, PHP allows software developers to directly integrate logic into the creation of web page content and efficiently manage data returned from a web browser.

PHP also contains numerous out-of-the-box extensions that make it easy for software engineers to interact with databases.

The language is intuitively designed to extract relevant data to be displayed on a web page, storing any respective information entered by a website visitor into its corresponding database defined by its script.

All in all, PHP consists of two simple moving parts: a scripting language and an interpreter.

Web and PHP developers can utilize scripts to define server-side behavior and logic they need in a web app.

These scripts can be conveniently embedded into HTML markup documents that are served at the frontend of the webserver.

An interpreter behaves as a backend module that integrates into the webserver.

It actively converts scripts into explicit commands that the computer executes to achieve outputs defined in the script by the web developer.

PHP is a Backend Programming language, which is widely used in many application such as Facebook, Wikipedia, Tumblr, Slack, MailChimp amongst many other platforms.
