The Cloud is making this venerable server-side scripting language more relevant than ever.

In the early days of the Internet (and we’re talking 1995, which is an eternity in technology terms) the server-side scripting language PHP was introduced and, believe it or not, it’s still the basis of many websites. Unlike client-side scripting, where everything runs on the web browser, server-side scripting is a technique that uses scripts on a web server to provide responses when a user makes a request on a website.

Because it’s essentially open source, PHP has been ported and deployed on web servers on many different platforms and operating systems over the years.

“Facebook is built on PHP, and so are Wikipedia and local online ­marketplace Lazada,” said Kesava Kumar Raman, general manager of Rynet Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Rynet Malaysia is the authorised training partner for Zend Technologies, the company that owns and develops PHP. It offers training for Zend PHP certification, a globally recognised standard ­certification for PHP expertise.

Despite the rise of competing server-side scripting languages like ASP.NET, Java and Ruby, PHP is still in use today.

“Java is heavyweight and ­complex, and requires a lot of time to develop. On the other hand PHP is a lightweight language and can be built by anybody from scratch and it’s not expensive – you just need to download it from the Internet,” says Kesava.

According to Kesava, with everything on the Cloud these days, PHP has become more ­relevant than ever and he believes that in the next 10 to 15 years, PHP is going to be huge.

Kesava adds that with 85% to 90% of the company’s portfolio in this country made up of govern- ment agencies who have built websites on this technology, Rynet intends to focus more on security in 2017 in its training.

Meanwhile, PHP is continually being developed by Zend Technologies – the latest version, PHP 7, was released in 2015 with performance improvements and enterprise level security.
