    The web is the future - it will certainly not harm to learn PHP. And even if websites become less important, learning a second programming language becomes easier. So yes, you should do it.

    PHP is a great programming language to learn, however, PHP alone is pretty worthless in industry. Generally looking at job advertisements, employers look for PHP, ASP, VB, MySQL. It can vary depending on the job type but as you see it's not just PHP alone. Take a look at job advertisements... Rates of pay, skills needed etc.

    It is a good idea, but learn some AJAX with it in honesty... AJAX is the way forward at the moment

    You should go with PHP coz you can get alot of online help if u choose php.
    whereas in other case like aspx or jsp there are not so much support present on the net.
    And if u know one you can easly catch another one.

    PHP is a great (and difficult) language to master. Like you, I started learning programming languages when I was your age. Currently, PHP has benefited me greatly! Though, there isn't a project I've done that has involved "only PHP". I'd recommend learning HTML and CSS if you go with the PHP route.

    One way I started to learn PHP was by reading people's source code projects, and how they did certain methods. Great places to see these are popular scripts like Wordpress, Joomla!, Drupal, etc.. It also helped me learn a project when I got myself in a project wayy over my head. I ended up developing a CMS for my school at the age of 15-16, which never finished (aside the point), but it was the project that I learned the most and got to where I am. I've only improved since.

    I'm currently a PHP developer for a company, and PHP continues to be a popular (and well supported) programming language.

    Hope that helps!

    I do have a lot of good ideas, and since I do not know how to code, I kept it myself. Turns out to be, 4 years after, Facebook now features that kind of "method" I have been thinking all the time. I've talked to some local guy for help, he told me it is impossible, but I have researched and knew it was possible. Only if I knew PHP lol.

    My question to everyone is that like when Engineering was a such a boom long ago, it isn't going that well for engineers now.

    Will internet industry turn out that way, because there are so many people on it?

    It's like learning any skill you can do anything with it, if you dream of the next big thing like facebook for example then you can program it all by yourself and not have to have others doing the work for you.

    Sorry mods, I did not realize this thread was so old until I looked at the original post date. I saw it toward the top of the list and responded. My apologies for thread resurrection.

    If you know C then you know a lot of php. Then there's php specific stuff like passing variables between pages etc. I'm in IM and not so much involved in development but now and then you need to get in and tweak a few things. That's when it's good to know a little about php. Tips: I stumbled over golabs . com (Mastering PHP). It's a php interpreter where you can easily test small php scripts, combined with lessons to learn php. It's not free ($50) though. I found it pretty nice but a little expensive as all lessons are not complete yet (I'm not in any way affiliated with the product).
