Getting started – Why should you learn PHP/MySQL?

Web has become such an integral part of people’s lives, as most of us have begun to use the web for every single of our need. Be it Booking tickets (or) Shopping (or) Searching for Education, Job, Marriage partner etc, (or) Connecting with friends, everything happens through the web today. As the utility of web is getting higher everyday, PHP developers are in huge demand today, as they are the ones who make the websites work. So, a career in the Web development field can go only one way – UPWARDS!

What is PHP?

In simple terms, PHP is a scripting language that is often embedded into HTML to add more interactive functions to the site. If HTML can be used to create simple websites, one needs PHP to built advanced websites. PHP is able to execute various tasks including printing data, creating numeric calculations, making comparisons, building simple boolean choices. It allows you to collect, process and utilize data to come out with the desired output.

What is MySQL?

MySQL is a relational database system used to store data ranging from a single character to as large as complete files or graphics. Although most programing languages can access it, MySQL is often coupled with PHP because they work very well together. Information saved in a MySQL database hosted on a web server can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

How do PHP & MySQL work together?

PHP can collect information, while MySQL can store the data. PHP can create dynamic calculations, while MySQL can provide it with the variables it uses. PHP can build a cart for your ecommerce store, while MySQL can keep the data in a format PHP can consume to create receipts on demand, display current order status, or even recommend other relevant products. Although PHP and MySQL can work independently, when you get them together it creates numerous possibilities for your site.

Top student queries - Subject

No. Infact, PHP is one of the easiest & straight-forward programming languages of all & you can master it with ease, provided you apply yourself totally & practice for many hours while learning. PHP language is not as strongly typed as C++ or Java, so you may have to adjust to variable creation a little, but it's quite simple to learn.

Since PHP is mostly used for web development & applications, you will eventually need to learn these too:

HTML, because it's what PHP usually outputs to the browser
MySQL, because we have to store user data in a database
CSS, because it's how you add style to HTML pages
JavaScript, because we need to make our HTML pages interactive

PHP is mostly used for Web development & basic knowledge in HTML, CSS & JS is sufficient to work with the language. Although it is not necessary to master the web-designing tools before learning PHP, it will be advantageous if one knows the front-end designing too, from the career point of view, as the student would have more options then. The companies may also prefer a candidate with knowledge in both web designing & web development.

Yes. MySQL is the most popular database system used with PHP, & students who want to get into web development field should learn it well too. Our course covers MySQL extensively & we make the students work in projects involving PHP & MySQL as part of the curriculum.

PHP lays a solid foundation in web development for you, upon which you can erect different types of building, according to your interest. You can focus on popular frameworks like CodeIgniter, YII, Laravel, Zend etc or on Databases like NoSQL, MongoDB etc or on front-end frameworks like AngularJS, JQuery etc or on CMS like Magento, Joomla, Wordpress etc. Every single domain mentioned above has huge demand in the market today & you can pursue any of them, if you have good expertise in PHP language.

Almost every company needs a team of web designer/developer, as websites have become an integral part of their digital marketing campaigns. The industry options are listed out below under the heading 'Career options'

This is a digital era, where every person & business has embraced the digital media wholly.
