To learn PHP is not difficult. The basics of PHP's syntax can be gleaned in a single sitting. However, mastering what you learn, as with anything, takes time and skill. PHP is the most popular web-oriented programming language currently in use. This is due in part to its ease of learning and ease of use. Another part is that it executes very quickly and so allows one to output dynamically-created web pages with little to no (perceived) performance loss.
PHP can be programmed using either a functional style or an object-oriented paradigm. For most web pages, the functional style is used because it lends itself most readily to simpler, smaller programs such as one uses on a web page.
For full web applications, object-oriented PHP is used almost invariably. It is a matter that object-oriented programming allows easier management, manipulation, and maintenance of very large codebases. Popular applications that use PHP are Facebook and 2easy Office.
In this series of PHP tutorials, you will see how to learn PHP quickly and with the knowledge that you know precisely what the computer is doing at any point in its execution of your code. This, in a nutshell, is the essence of solid programming skills and make it that much easier not only to learn PHP but to master it.
