I know PHP but I'm not a professional PHP programmer. But I'd like to use php to build any websites and I think it is a great language to learn. How easy or difficult would PHP be for a beginner or could you suggest any alternatives?

Php is a great language to know. The majority of sites on the internet are written in php.

Now hard is it to learn?
That depends on the person, your background, etc. It is do'able for anyone. My 8yo is currently learning Python.

The important thing is to not be afraid to try!

i heard that best is to start with c+ so you can get a main base of how programming language works, then any other should be easy to learn

PHP is one of those languages you can pick up and learn the basic's of fairly easily. However to become a 'Good' PHP developer you really have to have a strong understanding of good programming techniques, design patterns and a solid base of other technical skills. Most people can put up a few simple web forms with PHP fairly easily, but to build a really large site or work for the bug guys, you have to have spend years learning the right way to do it.

I propose to study about this scheme:

The desired script -> Split on the problems and their formulation -> Solving problems with the help of tutorials, examples, forums and so on. -> Read the theory, understanding of the written code and change it if necessary -> The script is ready

Not that much Diffiicult.

Php is very easy to learn

You got to practice to more.

The more practice you do the more easy to learn.

I recently came across this article regarding programming is not for everyone, interesting read.

I forgot where it is from but the title goes something like..

"don't believe anyone who tells you learning to code is easy"

Most OS web platforms are written in php (if not all of them?), so you have the advantage of an interesting playground to learn. I think php is the way to go. Maybe python, but haven't played with that one at all.

Can you get really good at it? That enters the art arena. I have the gut feeling that you can if that is what you want.

I should started with basic html codes if you turned in coding for the first time here. I has started with HTML in the begin and scripts where mostly written in PHP so yeah, in the meantime you might learn it will slowly easy.

I still use HTML witch is easy for me to build website but there are also programs to build website as well.

Hello arindamb,

I would say you wouldn't know until you tried to learn to see if it was difficult to learn, it varies on different people.

Have you tried a company called udemy.com they have some great courses on there that can help you with this, some are free, and some are paid.

here is a free course i found which might help you: https://www.udemy.com/php-mysql-tutorial/

if you want to see other php courses available here is a link: https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?q=php+beginner&src=ukw&lang=en

I hope this helps and good luck :)

PHP is easy or not for you it is depends on you. How your programming basics are clear. To learn PHP there are many sources and videos on the Internet available. Pick any one of them and start learning. By experience you will find various problems and solutions to the problems. W3schools is one of the best sources to learn PHP.

If you are familiar with basic programming languages like HTML and c, c++ then you can easily learn PHP.

Now a days internet provides you many sources where you can learn step by step languages like php.

I will suggest you to start from basic PHP tutorials.
