You are here, means you want to start your career in Php. Being a PHP developer from a decade, I will tell you, what PHP is, why you should learn, how to learn and where to learn?
PHP is a language like other languages C, C++, C#, Python, Java &, etc. As human understands through language the same machine understands through languages.
Before, you learn PHP you should know why a language is important?
Compare with human, as you want to deliver some text with voice or writing, you use English, French and etc. It means you have some database inside you and you want a language to let other people understand, so you use language.
The same happens with machine language, if you have a database and you want to communicate, then you need a language. Therefore before learning PHP as language, you should learn its database.
MySQL is Php’s Database
You can learn MySQL Database from https://www.tutorialspoint.com/mysql/. Database learning is easy and if you get good command in Database script writing, you need to write less code in the language.
In my decade experience, I learned that 4 things are major Important for any language and database working.
For these 4 works, you do all the works. You insert something in your website/app, edit/update, delete and show to the user. These are basic and major works and other works are just handling these 4 works like Object Orientation Programming System (Oops).
