Tech on the Go: History of PHP

PHP was released in the early 1990s with a very specific purpose: to help creators with simple tasks that HTML couldn’t handle. Today, PHP is one of the most popular languages for creating dynamic websites. It’s used on over 70% of sites, including WordPress, Vimeo, and Mailchimp.

He then looks at how PHP has evolved and where it is today, and examines high-level programming concepts in the context of PHO, along with overviews of common frameworks and methodologies.
