    I don't think that you can give a clear answer to this.

    Many big sites are written with PHP nowadays and so you can't say that it's less professional anymore just because it's free. ASP is more tightly integrated into the .NET environment and this may be an advantage in some situations.

    For the average developer PHP is the better choice because it is installed on most web servers.

    Sometimes I think PHP is more respected, but don't know if you consider that to mean professional.

    It really depends on your definition of "professional". That's a very relative term when asking this kind of question.

    PHP is fast and idiot-proof, so it's really easy to work with.

    ASP is more powerful, uses less memory to run, and isn't as idiot-proof.

    Generally speaking PHP is easier to work with, especially if you are new to coding. But ASP is better for larger applications.

    But it you really want pure speed and power, you should also consider Perl, which is way faster and uses much less memory than PHP or ASP. But it's also not an easy language to learn.

      It would have been much easier to just simply provide a link to this but I don't have 15 posts yet.
      Found this on Yahoo answers.
      One of the best comparisons I have read from "just JR"
      PHP, [www dot php dot net], while loosely based on C and Perl, has never faced the overwhelming complications ASP has. PHP is an object oriented language - though scripts need not necessarily be developed that way (there are still a vast number of developers preferring procedural programming, and PHP caters to both schools). PHP is both cross platform and open source, available for every major operating system and works with most web servers. It is easily extendable by anyone capable of coding in C, and comes pre-bundled with more functionality than ASP could ever offer. Simple capabilities, such as FTP, data compression, file uploads, XML, MD5, encryption and email are not included in ASP and require expensive, third-party packages to be installed. All of this functionality and more are built right into PHP. Complex functions such as dynamic images, IMAP, SNMP, dynamic flash, PDF, native access (non ODBC) to Oracle, Ovrimos, Postgre, Sybase, mySql, MSSQL, Ingres, Interbase and Informix databases, LDAP, and sockets, just to name a few, are available for free to any installation of PHP, but are not (and probably never will be) available with ASP. In addition, one could make the point that PHP is a more mature language than ASP. ASP has only been around since 1996; PHP has been around since 1994, and has a huge base of developers working on it every waking minute of every day; bugs are usually fixed within minutes of being reported and new features are being integrated daily.

      1) ASP is significantly slower than PHP, for obvious reasons. Primarily, PHP runs on notoriously fast Unix and Linux servers which have for years outpaced Windows running on comparable hardware. ASP does not run on any operating system other than Windows, and even then, only in IIS and PWS. I could discuss countless reasons why IIS makes a terrible web server, but that would be a discussion all on it's own. PHP runs on almost any web server, on almost any platform. I have even built a web server in PHP which was capable of executing PHP scripts.

      2) ASP natively supports only Access and MSSQL, whereas PHP natively supports a huge number of databases. They both support ODBC equally well. MySQL is a database that PHP closely integrates with; it is a very powerful database that rivals Oracle in speed. Like PHP, MySQL is free, and blows most other databases out of the water. Another hidden cost with ASP is the database angle; Microsoft expects you to develop using Access and when your webpage outgrows it, to switch to MSSQL, an extremely expensive option.

      3) While even the best software has glitches, PHP has notoriously few. The PHP development team has an outstanding reputation for fixing bugs, and in order to streamline the process they even have an online system through which new bug reports can be submitted. Most bugs are resolved within 24 hours, and I'm speaking from experience here. There are a huge number of outstanding bugs in ASP which will probably never be fixed. Unless you're a major corporation, chances are that your bug report to Microsoft will likely go unanswered.

      4) And finally, cost. PHP is free. ASP isn't free. If you want to use ASP, you have to use IIS, and if you want to use IIS, you have to buy Windows. Traditionally, the cost of Windows has been high. Microsoft has been aggressively trying to reduce this factor but they're hardly going to give Windows away for free. The cost of running an ASP-based website implies a full Windows server platform; development costs are higher, software licenses are expensive and speed, security and flexibility are all sacrificed.
      There's a reason that Unix and Linux are dominant in the server market; money, security and performance all speak volumes.
      My own experience is in alignment with this mans assertions.

    That's always a question that comes down to your definition of professional.

    .NET will likely land you a higher paying job if that's what you mean by professional.

    But, as Tashi mentioned, there are lots of big sites out there that run on PHP and with the adoption of WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, there are lots of firms out there that opt to use PHP based solutions.

    It's relative to what you're looking for.

        After doing about 160 websites in PHP, I no longer use PHP. I stick with .NET now. PHP may be easier to learn but then you inherit a whole raft of spaghetti code with the business rules and data access layer all mangled together with the presentation layer. That being said, .NET has some excellent patterns and frameworks but as TrafficMystic pointed out so rightly, plenty of developers make a mess of this too.
        Both PHP and ASP.NET are fast (ASP classic - anyone else remember 1998 was what we used before 2001 - it's like a scripting version for creating dynamic sites that I can't even imagine using thesedays.)

        This is true that PHP can be deployed on Linux or Windows (the two main platforms for web hosting). It may be a consideration for you.

          Totally depends what code you inherit. From a new developer you may well inherit code in the way you describe. However, you can easily inherit an MVC application written in PHP that is equally as well written.

          Just because it's, ASP.NET doesn't mean at all that it will be written well.

    IMHO instead of professional, think of supply side, scale of your project and budget. If you are a large organization with a big budget, got for ASP.Net, on the other hand, if you are looking for quick support from the community, well established open-source solutions like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, that you can quickly use and customize, go for PHP.

    At the end, it's your background, good programmers that you know and can hire, which will dictate what your development language should be based upon.

    pixshix,

    I am assuming you are looking at which is best for custom web development. Based on that, my thoughts are as follows:

    PHP is a popular scripting language. A lot of the Linux/UNIX crowd like it. If you are planning on developing for Linux/UNIX it would be a good choice.

    ASP is a legacy scripting language. It is essentially dead for professional use. It is a bad choice.

    ASP.NET using C# is a standardized programming language. Unlike the other two, it is compiled. It is the best choice for Windows.

    In the end, it really depends on what operating system you are targeting.

    All the Best,

    Rich

      I believe Rich summed it up the best. As a developer myself, I refrain from getting into any argument about what language is the "most professional."

      The choice you make primarily depends on what platform you're using on your server (Windows vs Linux). If you're using Windows, go with ASP.Net (C# or Visual Basic). If you're using Linux, go with PHP.

      As he said, ASP was the predecessor to ASP.net, so you'd want to choose ASP.net for Windows development unless you were required to host your app on a really old Windows server for some reason.

      I use both PHP and ASP.net for different projects. All languages have their strengths and weaknesses.

    I'd write pretty much everything in php because the design time is so much faster, but if I thought a site was going to get absolutely hammered I'd look into tomcat because you get many of the benefits of .NET and linux stability. I would imagine a tomcat/.NET website could handle twice the load before crashing just because it doesn't fork a new process for every user that accesses your site.

    But... With most small-medium sized websites running well on $10-$15/month hosting. Is it even a consideration, unless you build the next facebook?

    In my opinion and experience, PHP is the better choice in most works.

    Some years ago I learnd ASP and ASP.NET... but as I was progressing in my works, I couldn't find enough examples to make all the things that was on my mind. So, in order to make them I need to spend more hours on my own... later that year I changed to PHP (which I knew just the basics) to find a lot more resources and that made me easier to finish works on time and add more functionality to them.

    So, my advice would be go with PHP, it will save you hours, time and stress.

    The problem with PHP is that many people have different versions installed. While the latest is 5.3.x, that supports the latest stuff and encourages much better programming practices, many people just don't upgrade. I have seen servers that still run 5.1, or doesn't want to go for 5.2.x for example.
    That is unacceptable, and is taking technology back.

    I would say that JSP is professional, but not many people are around supporting it. So yeah, my answer is PHP, haha.

    I have worked in several places where we have used enterprise level languages (the ones that are running 'high transaction applications') The preferred language for these types of applications are Java or .NET because they help the programmer out so much with the type of language support that it offers (offering access to a greater number of databases and control structures). The last company I worked at was operating on a PHP/MySQL backend doing things that traditional programmers would have not thought was possible. However the system required constant maintenance, and several dedicated programmers to support the application.

    It really depends on the type of application that you are building. If you are building something that will eventually see that level of traffic, it would be a good idea to rebuild it in a different programming language, because it would not require constant tuning, and would prevent poor programming practices (due to the Strongly typed variables - where PHP does not offer that)

    It really depends on how you want to present yourself, as a developer or as an organization. Be open to the idea of rebuilding the application as your application grows in complexity and the number of users that utilize the application. -- The only constant is change, and so should your application.

      IMHO, professionalism does not depend on a programming language.

      Choosing programming languages is more a question of preference and which server OS and or WebServer you are using.

      Additionally it depends on which development environment or IDE you plan to use and how much you can spend.

      Visual Studio is THE development tool, but if you want to go for anything else than "Express", then you have to be prepared to spend some money.

      I personally prefer using Visual Studio Professional plus VS.PHP, which allows me to develop in whatever language is needed for the Job.

      C# for windows applications
      ASP for IIS Servers
      PHP for Unix/Apache Servers

      They are all professional languages, depending on who uses them

    Programming languages are TOOLS.

    First figure out what your end game is.

    Then choose the right tool.

    No programming languages are 'professional'.

    The programmer/software engineer can be classified as either utilizing good coding practices, incorporating super duper design methodologies, and all of that good stuff.

    What is the extent at which you should do the above?

    There are many factors that will shake your choice to decide which Web application framework. This decision should be based on the above factors, the kind of career path you choose, and detailed study. Although in reality the decision is usually exposed to the framework of your development as much as possible first get comfortable with the language syntax and features. My advice is to use both if you can not, because everyone has their own advantages, has won its place in today's Web application development industry.

      I agree with the folks who say there is no clear answer. I have some subscription websites I have used ASP.Net for because it was the best at the time for sure.

      The 'large community of contributors' argument in favor of PHP has diminished over the years. You can get an open source library to do almost everything you ever wanted in ASP.Net. ASP.Net favors and more closely works with MS SQL Server. PHP works best with mySQL.

      At this point in the game, I would have to closely analyze a professional corporate project before making the decision of which platform/language to use.

      One thing I do love about PHP is how quick and easy it is to go in and make a change. ASP (not ASP.Net) was very similar, it just wasn't joined quite as well with the actual .Net framework which was very new at the time.

      PHP on a Windows machine is kind of overkill if you can avoid it. It runs as a CGI under IIS. I have recently installed wordpress on a Windows server, so it can be done.

    As a person who has been programming for 7 years, using C, VB, PHP, Perl, Python and Ruby...I would say that there is no such thing as a 'professional' language. There are certainly languages that are more beloved by corporate environments, and others that are more accessible to people without deep pockets, but most languages will find use at all levels.

    In general, the choice of what language to use for a particular project comes down to what tool is better for the job.

    Example: I would never try to write a web-scraper in PHP or ASP. Why? Because Python and Ruby (and even Perl) all have considerably better libraries for web scraping.

    If you want to learn a language to use professionally, then that is a different question altogether. If I was to advise someone who is starting out programming from scratch, I would give them a couple tips:

    1. The language doesn't matter as much as understanding other 'general concepts' about programming that are common to most programming languages (if not all) that you will encounter.

    2. Start with python. It's easy (fast) to learn and enforces many of the 'general concepts' above in a very transparent manner. And there is a free course that teaches Python (MIT's Open Courseware Computer Science).

    The choice of programming language depends on kind of application you are developing.
    PHP is easy to use and many sites today have been developed in PHP.
    ASP is slower since it is based on COM architecture and also, ASP does not provide platform compatibility unlike PHP.
    ASP.NET is also a good option with its clean design and implementation.

      Largely, a matter of educational and professional background.

      Coming from a C/C++ background, I found PHP 4 a "not-that-well-thought" bunch of macros. However I stopped complaining after working with it in a couple of small projects (although I still believe that you do not really need to invest any serious time in php/mysql if you have the right background - but that's a good think I guess).

      For larger applications I have used asp.net(C#) /SQL Server because the project team was using that. I am enjoying developing on this platform more and it definetely promotes better structured code - which is good. It is also good to be able to use a full-fledge language such as C#. The learning curve is steeper but the productivity higher (Visual Studio allows you to build a typical database-driven Web application without writing any code other than SQL!).

      In my opinion, "Professional" is a relative term. Each language has its advantages and disadvantages. I have been a professional programmer for over 20 years and I have found over the years that languages crop up all the time. It really does depend on what language you are familiar with and can get the most done in. "Professional" to me seems to imply what one can do in any language to make their product "look" professional. IMHO

    The first and foremost feature that sets PHP apart from the other two is the community support. Being associated with the Open Source Initiative, PHP has a large user base of developers, testers, documenters and reviewers. ASP is based on the .Net framework that is owned outrighly by Microsoft. JSP is also gaining ground but it has a large way to go. It is also now an open source product.

    It really depends on your definition of "professional". That is a very relative term when you ask this type of Question.php is fast and foolproof, so it's very easy to work with.ASP is more powerful, uses less memory to run, and is not as idiot-proof. Generally speaking PHP is easier to work with, especially if you are new to coding. But ASP is better for larger applications.

    PHP is an open-source general-purpose scripting language that is particularly suited for Web development and can be entrenched into HTML. Being a strong, server-side language it provides a great deal of functionality. PHP has become very renowned and there is a huge demand of the same for its varied usability on the web.

    There´s not a more professional language, nor most professional database engine, etc.

    It all comes to two things:

    - The Programmer Skills
    - The framework used
    - Software Architecture

    So there´s no more professional language but professional ways to use them.

    If you are evaluating which is the most accessible in terms of web hosting and more average server speed, i would go with PHP, since ASP.NET web hosting is expensive and the share hosting does not works that good (I have MochaHost and Arvixe and they both have unexpected problems with my applications).

    If you are looking for a professional way to do things, I would go with MVC software pattern. Both, PHP and ASP.NET supports them, and allows to create a very robust software and even SEO Friendly URLS along the way.

    In conlusion, there´s NO most professional language, but professional way to develop software, proof:

    StackOverlow: ASP.NET MVC / SQLSERVER
    facebook: PHP / MYSQL
    MSN/BING: ASP.NET
    Plenty of Fish: ASP.NET / SQLServer
    etc etc

    Generally speaking PHP is simpler to work with in case you are new to coding. But ASP is better for larger applications. But it you require pure speed and power, you ought to also think about Perl, which is way faster and makes use of much less memory than PHP or ASP.

    How you use it that make it professional.
    Language is not the main fact.
    Anyway, PHP is better.

    As per my view, there are many languages for web development and desktop applications but I think JAVA is the more professional language than other for both web and desktop applications.

    PHP is easy and fast to learn and runs efficiently on the server side. PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be embedded directly into the HTML code.
