First thing first. I was recommended a nice IDE called PHP Designer 7. For those who do not know what an IDE is.Here is a definition.
Integrated Development Environment. It has visual designer to allow you to put together the user interface visually, editor to let you edit the source code, compiler to compile your source to executable, debugger to debug your programs, etc.
So many IDE's make programming a lot easier and more convenient as it's a one stop shop. So anyhow I am currently teaching myself PHP for the sake of learning the language.
A definition of PHP :
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. It is a recursive acronym; the first "P" stands for "PHP," and the first "P" of that stands for "PHP" as well, thus the cycle continues. It originally stood for Personal Home Page, but was renamed when the language fell into common use on the web, at version 3.0
This code displays Hello World. Enjoy!
