    In the present situation both PHP and .net are good. You have decide go with either one. Personally I suggest .net.

    I would prefer .Net. .Net has a better future.

    In my opinion PHP is too good better than ASP because PHP is user friendly and easy to use.

    Which servers will you be writing for, Windows or Linux? .Net runs on Windows servers, PHP runs on just about all servers.

    PHP is best as compared to .NET. Controls of PHP are best and easy to use but controls and conditions in .NET is most difficult. Help is available online on PHP but in .NET getting help online is most difficult task.

    I have some suggestions for you
    • Research in market(local city or near by IT hub) and see opportunities for fresher. Definitely PHP provides more for freshers.
    • If there is a little chance of .Net fresher job in your near by city go for only ASP.Ner
    • For long term like web projects that runs on intranet inside a big organization use only .Net because of Support provided by Microsoft.
    • .Net is more secure and widely used in web project(I am not talking about websites, shopping sites, CMS or other small projects).
    • At experience of 4 to 5 years every company focus on a person quite intelligence at database site rather than programming. ASP.Net will allow you to work with SQL Server which is itself a large database.
    • MySQL is good enough I am not against. But you want to see yourself in Microsoft, IBM, HCL after five years. They give preference to only Java, .Net, Visual C++, Oracle, MS
      SQL Server. Even the largest leader in India Infosys publish only above requirement to get a job.
    I am mentioning again I am not against PHP and MySQL. My friend work in PHP and withdraw more than 60K salary per month. They do feel ASP.Net is quite better because child of Microsoft.

    I am a ASP.Net programmer having 4+ experience. That's why I am just giving you a vague idea to chose.

    One thing should keep in mind always no matter field you chose, always keep updated yourself and improve logical and problem solving skill and not to say communication skills.

    Yes I totally agree with you. It's a time of centralization and mobile apps. We must know the different method used by different languages to communicate with outside environment.

    According to me, PHP is much better asp.net because PHP is more demanding language rather then asp.net...

    Depends on what you want to do with it. My experience is that Php is much wider used, and easier to learn. On the other hand Asp.net will make it easier for you to switch to software development when you are tired of web development. That is a consideration you have to make.

    If you are still not sure, I can only repeat what is said some posts ago: Research the market: which language are the most jobs in?

    They both are good, but here are some differences:
    PHP less expensive hosting server you need only apache webserver, more popular in the web.
    ASP.NET will run only on windows hosting which is most cases is more expensive, but it's more easy to learn and coding is much faster.

    .NET is more object-oriented than PHP (so, in programming paradigm .NET is better), but if you are going to spread your web-application on your own web-farms you have to buy licenses for all machines with Windows Server. Nevertheless, with clouds coming up, these problem partially will be solved.

    I agree.


    PHP was more popular because every webhoster supported php (IMO the main reason is/was => it's free)

    c# is OOP
    php CAN but isn't required to be OOP, so it's IMO easier to learn it.


    I learned c#, visual basic in the school and in my job, but i prefered php because forums became my hobby and i had to learn it.

    Now i'm sticking with php because i'm much more familiar with it.
    Sometimes i miss the good old days, because the .net framework has provide many great things (e.g. classes) which aren't available in php. You need to code it yourself or choose one of the many available frameworks.

    According to me you have to choose PHP. Because in PHP you will get the job easily.

    Both Asp.Net and PHP are good to learn. PHP is very easy to learn, but i would like to suggest ASP.NET. So now you have to decide either ASP.NET or PHP.
