Definitely is! PHP is a great language to learn😊 With PHP you can build websites that function, i.e. a social site where people can post pictures, comment, like, etc. Note: That works with a database, so you'll have to learn SQL too😊 I'll also advice that if you're going to learn PHP you have a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Then you could make great websites!

Chocolate Gal😘 look here: https://whydoesitsuck.com/why-does-php-suck/ https://blog.codinghorror.com/php-sucks-but-it-doesnt-matter/ if you want to get easy money, but write terrible apps, PHP is for you in other cases, use a more beatiful and structurized language

*****************IMO* There are two important things to keep in mind. ************************ - First, as demonstrated here in the reply chain, there is no definitive answer to your question of, "Is PHP worth learning", if we are referring the skill of utilizing PHP. It would be very worth it, if your employer (or a business you are looking to apply to) has PHP based server and the skill would be valued by the company. On the other hand, if there isn't a single PHP file in the offices server, the skill would not hold as much value, regarding employment. - Second, "Knowledge is power" -Sir Francis Bacon If you just have a thirst for learning, don't hold yourself back. Regardless of opinions, applications (physical or data), or any other outside factor, the process of learning is about expanding oneself. Even if you just get an idea of the basics and decide that it's not worth spending any more time on, you have ventured down the path and grown from the experience. tl:dr: Venture forth with your education if it applies to your field of work or place of employment, or if you just want to. If it's not going to help you make money and it totally does not hold your interest, move on to other options that will. Best wishes with your journey!

I know its focused on server side scripting

Yes.

Yep!!! By nailing this language you can easily find job in the backend work office. Do remember : php has the honour to run the internet giants facebook and WordPress so there is no point in asking such questions.

ᐺ ! ᖇ ᖶ ᒪ Why would you want to use PHP to make an app when there's Java, Kotlin etc. 😮 Anyway just my opinion: PHP is a cool language. It's fun too😊

Chocolate Gal😘 checked the link. The problem is that package managers, like "composer" are already a norm for lots of languages and it isn't something unique, js has npm, ruby has gems, python has pip js has a big a community too python also and more than 30 popular languages have it and, if you scroll down your article, you'll see counter-arguments, that it is better to use JS / Ruby / Python / Scala / Go because some of them faster, others are more beatiful etc.

RHYTHM✨🎵🎶 Nice answer👌 Awesome😊 Was informative for me too😃

Chocolate Gal😘 app can be in any environment, by "app" I don't mean mobile apps, I talk about all apps in general, including web apps (both frontend and backend apps) and, PHP is a terrible language, it seems you didn't even read the articles I sent. So this arguing doesn't make sense.

ᐺ ! ᖇ ᖶ ᒪ I don't really agree with you, I'm sorry. Your really didn't give a reason why PHP isn't worth learning. Maybe you should specify 'cause PHP doesn't do the same thing as Python and the other languages you mentioned. Just my thought 😊

You could try Python or Ruby

PHP is mainly focused on server-side scripting, so you can do anything any other CGI program can do, such as collect form data, generate dynamic page content, or send and receive cookies. But PHP can do much more. There are three main areas where PHP scripts are used. Server-side scripting.

No harm learning PHP.

Yeah why not, and also you can wait for the version 8, it'll have nice features. But my suggestion to you is Golang

Chocolate Gal😘 your opinion is based on nothing, my opinion is based on research. So, still weird...
