Back-End Networking, Databases and Multiplayer | Sololearn: Learn to code for FREE!


Back-End Networking, Databases and Multiplayer

I recently decided to finally approach php after years of fear and finished the course. However I'm no closer to finding out what is needed. Information I received from comments and research are mostly things like "You need a [A-Z]AMP thing; this's better; that's slower; that's costly; less space.." All the uncertainties stopped me from continuing the SQL course, especially since everyone claims it is rather useless now, and apparently people dislike SoloLearn teaching MySQL. Also, I heard that PHP is dying and I should use a js framework which are much faster than php, and use something like NoSQL or [insert weird name]SQL. But at the end it seems different things are good for specific purposes. My questions are: If I want to make a website so users can sign up/login and store info, what do I use. What do I use for multiplayer real time games such as ROTMG or LoL, incorporating these with javascript of course. I would appreciate any explanations and articles that may point me in the right direction.

In JavaScript, you can use the XMLHttpRequest object to send a request without a form... maybe use that? I’m really not sure, that’s just an idea.


Whos saying that? I use what ever language I feel comfortable with. PHP, mysql, nodejs and for real time socket server.


Toni Isotalo so real time socket server is what's used for multiplayer, or for website accounts and data storage as such?
