Key Features of PHP


PHP

Evolving

PHP is constantly being updated and improved.

Web Focused

PHP was designed specifically with web development in mind.

Flexible

As a general purpose scripting language, PHP can be used for almost any task.

Practical

PHP's simple syntax, gradual typing, and robust standard library make rapid development a breeze.

Well Documented

PHP is well documented by the official PHP.net website, which includes helpful community commentary.

Cross-platform

Write once, run anywhere PHP is supported.

Get mentored the PHP way

Every language has its own way of doing things. PHP is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a PHP developer and how to write idiomatic code in PHP. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in PHP - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
