Learning PHP – Step 1

I develop in several programming languages like C#, VB.NET, VB, Java, JavaScript, Python, Groovy, Powershell, PL-SQL, T-SQL, a little of Ruby, C, C++, Assembly (in the last years not so often), Prolog, List/Scheme, F#, Perl and and few others less used. I’ve read and I can understand PHP, from the knowledge I have from “C” Languages, but I never developed a complete project in PHP, and I don’t know if in the future I will need to do it, but from what I’ve been reading PHP is used in the TOP CMS Frameworks/Applications as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.

I’m thinking to create a synergy here, I will deep my understanding and knowledge about PHP and WordPress, tweaking my blog, this blog! Which I think will enrich my CV and, in the future, my career, making me a better team leader and software architect.

Starting PHP.

1) It’s a language to use in web sites.

2) You mix HTML with PHP, which is different from ASP.NET and JSP for instance. To differentiate the HTML from PHP you use in the middle of the HTML. The server will know how to process the PHP and merge it with HTML.
