You can go to w3schools, they have a good full on php section that will teach you the basics, however im against any newbie programmer learning php, because its not going to be the industry standard any longer,JAVASCRIPT IS KING right now, if you want me to advice you want start learning NODE.JS, which is very Hot right Now!!

Hope That Helps

That makes absolutely no sense, because they are 2 completely different languages which run in 2 separate environments (server vs browser). PHP is best for some tasks, and Javascript is best for other tasks.

For any task that can be accomplished with both languages, it's usually best to use PHP for it, because a small percentage of people will have Javascript disabled in their browser.

So which language you should learn ultimately depends on what you want to accomplish, and what your goals are. That said, I think it's good to know both languages.

To the OP, check out this list of tutorials.

Well, to be fair, he was talking about node.js, which does execute on the server, so what happens in the browser shouldn't matter at all.

However, as a professional client-side (JavaScript) programmer myself, I am highly skeptical of using JavaScript on the server. This is because JavaScript is just not a very robustly designed language, it is riddled with idiosyncrasies such as this: n = "1" + 1; alert(n); //alerts 2.

I believe it is much better to use a more solid programming language when dealing with something as powerful as a server. Even PHP is a strict language compared to JavaScript.

I assumed he was referring to traditional Javascript, since he used the words "JAVASCRIPT IS KING".

If he was comparing PHP to node.js... I'm not familiar enough with node.js to know how it compares to PHP. But that would make an interesting discussion.

Thanks for the reply, but in terms of node.js which is a server side langauge run v8 engine, you write your code in javascript, it has nothing to do with the browser. It's much faster than php. you don't have to deal with a lot of the CR*P that you with PHP like .htaccess and .conf files

for example

Code:
var express = require("express");
var app = express();

app.get("/twitter_posts", function(req,res) { 
        res.render("<p> Hello World </p>");
})
;

BAAAM, you have yourself a webserver in a couple of lines that renders html pages, and user friendly urls "/twitter_people" instead of dealing with overly complicated dynamic urls that you would do in PHP.

Sorry, I thought you were talking about regular Javascript in your previous post. Node.js does look interesting. Would be really cool if jQuery could run server-side!

Oh kool no worries , you can use all the jquery function in node.js by installing the jquery module:

in the command line type(first you got to install nodejs)
Code:
npm install jquery
then add it to your script

Code:
$ = require("jquery");
....
you can also install another module called cheerio, which is a lightweight version of jquery, which i think its better, because you can't deal with THE DOM
in the node.js enviorment

Code:
npm install cheerio
another thing is if you do learn nodejs, you write one language for both client side and server side, which for me is perfect.

I don't think you truly understand the difference between the two languages, websites can't function with java-script alone as they need server side functionality.

PHP is an open source and easy to learn online. You can start from w3schools.com. In addition, there is an official website of PHP, "www.php.net" So, use this site to learn PHP in a proper way.

If you really want to dive into coding check out this free Harvard course CS50 This course was a real game changer for me.

But as a simple PHP course my favorite is the PHP fundamentals course at TutsPlus

As for how to learn PHP; it differs per person. Some people read books and some people just play with it. Others follow video tutorials.

Fastest way is to try and do something, try making a simple guestbook, and learn the basics just doing it. There are lots of resources for that, for example php.net.

There are so many free tutorial, video and websites available where you can easily learn PHP. If you have any queries regarding PHP coding then so many forums are also available where you can easily share your problem and people will give you favorable reply. Initial basis you can learn from w3schools which is the best website you can learn easily.

Personally I think actually trying to do something in PHP will teach you the most. Try getting something from a webpage and echo-ing a certain bit. Look up how to do each stage from opening up the page to displaying the section.
After this try to do something a bit harder. Always push yourself so you have to research how to do something you NEED for what your doing.

I think actually diving into it will give the most benefit.
