To work in PHP has a greate fun and also a challenging
work,i personally think,Be a Master of any of the language
there is lot in php to learn like jumla,drupal,cake php,most
important thing is its open source,so go ahead,never think
abt salary or money initially..do ur best..go deeper gain
extraordinary knowledge then ,You tell and company pays
you.Thants my Attitude,I love PHP-MYSQL,Every platform has
its own Adv/Dis,so dont think abt that,try find ur own
Dear Vijay, being a programmer I do not want to be in
camps..like microsoft or linux(open source and under GPL).
For my career both are important. I am not criticizing any
particular language. But fact is fact. PHP is easy to learn
and this is the one of the major reason why competition is
growing these days on softwares/languages under GNU. To
Raja I would like to say..that php can never overtake Java.
Main reason is .....JAVA is a full fledged and PURE object
oriented language where PHP is only a scripting langauge.
You might be saying this due to lack of JAVA knowledge with
you. But we are not criticizing any languages here. As a
programmer we are not supposed to support only one or two
platformS..this will limit our ability to learn.
I don't know. Few days back I started learning php on my
own..no doubt it is easy to learn that is what making my
worry about the career scope in php and mysql. More
clearly...If anyone can learn php so easily then applicants
for the php job will definitely rise and its always a rule
where supply is more price is less. What you people think
on this issue?
php might be a oldest language but its popularity increasing day by day. May be .net or java or some other goes down in the future but php is ever green. why because " Jab tak duniya hai tab tak internet rahega. jab tak internet hai tab tak dynamic sites bantehee rahenge aur web designing and web development rahega". most of people dont like microsoft technologies. every body likes open source. php is open source. and one thing no discussed.... you can do php freelancing. you can get projects on your own and you can earn sitting in home. one person is sufficient to complete the php projects. where in .net projects you need a team most of the times to complete the job. so dont hesitate to to do php. its much much much better than .net or jawa or what ever. because it guarantees you a consistant career.
