Relevance of PHP in the world of Web 2.0
This era is considered to be a digital age and everything is related to the cyber territory. Whenever we consider our daily works, more or less 90% works are related with web that means 90% of our works are done in web like banking, job, reservation, chat, social networking, education, selling and what not. So, the web is totally covered the lives of human beings. Here comes the need of web interface to interact with the end users. And that is why the web programming languages comes into being.
Web Programming Languages
As the web is advancing forward, the web programming languages are being developed day by day with advanced characteristics. There exist many web programming languages like PHP, ASP, VB.NET, ASP.NET, JAVA, PYTHON etc. But amongst the aforesaid programming languages, the web territory in programming language, the PHP holds a large space. PHP was initially developed as Web Programming Language and later on PHP can be used in any case like Desktop Application Development. This web enveloped world is totally configured using Web Programming languages and PHP does this using its sophisticated advanced classes of syntax.
Web 2.0 is totally a weird term to be explained. Initially web interface is developed with a minimal interaction signal events and later on, now web interface can be used for any work and now it includes many function abilities. This is called Web v2 or Web Version 2. And now-a-days it is seen that amongst all other web programming languages, PHP is wide-spread.
PHP Web Programming
PHP as a web programming language holds top place for web application development to interact with the end users. PHP is wide-spread as it contains many inbuilt functions to take the load off the web programmer and eventually it also includes many external advanced framework classes and extensions to work with the web 2.0 much better. PHP mainly uses extensions and modules. Extension and modules are extended libraries and classes to extend the programming interface to greater extent. For web application development, many frameworks are needed for security measures and even for socket connection; we need some extended modules or extension to work on sockets or protocols. For these, PHP can be easily used in large extend after loading the extensions. Even if we consider, social networking arena, PHP holds the top place as Facebook is totally developed using PHP. Even network programming can also be done using PHP. But for web 2.0, network programming or socket programming is not needed too much. We only need extended frameworks to work with the web 2.0 to better understand the relevance of PHP in this arena. Now-days, 99% websites are developed using PHP Frameworks like Joomla, Drupal, XOOPS, Froggy loops, phpBB, SMF and many more. These are extended version of php that includes many classes of their own to configure the web 2.0 according to the MVC design patterns.
PHP is largely used now-a-days but other web programming languages like python can also be used in large extent but not comparable to PHP as Orkut is made using Google-Python API, the Twitter is also made using Twitter-python API. Though if we consider in Toto, then PHP takes the top notch place in web 2.0 for interacting with the end users.
