Where Can You Go If You Want To Learn PHP?

YoungUpstarts

Although WordPress uses several different programming languages – HTML, CSS, MySQL and JavaScript, to name a few – PHP is what primarily drives the platform’s backend. Honestly, I think it’s worth knowing at least a bit about PHP even if you don’t plan to become a developer.

Lessons Learned: Why PHP won

Startup Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned by Eric Ries Monday, January 12, 2009 Why PHP won When I first learned to program on the web, Perl + CGI was the dominant platform. But by the time I was building my first websites for commercial use , PHP had taken over. Since then, PHP (as part of the LAMP stack ) has really been the dominant development platform, at least in the free software and startup worlds. Writing unit tests or mock objects in PHP is an exercise in constant frustration.

Crunching Apple Pay tokens in PHP

Code as Craft

Today we’re open sourcing part of our server-side solution, applepay-php , a PHP extension that verifies and decrypts Apple Pay payment tokens. We also couldn’t find any examples written in PHP (our primary language) or C (which could serve as the basis for a PHP extension). To meet our needs, we wrote a custom PHP extension on top of OpenSSL that exposes just two functions: applepay_verify_and_decrypt and applepay_last_error.

Atomic deploys at Etsy

Code as Craft

For example, in PHP you might autoload files on demand when instantiating objects and if the code has changed mid-request the caller and the implementation could easily get out of synch. When trying to address this problem in the past, I’ve made use of PHP’s realpath cache and APC (a PHP opcode cache, which uses inodes as keys). With PHP 5.5 there is a new opcode cache called Opcache (which is also available for PHP 5.2-5.4).
