I've been studying Internet programming for around 5 years at Uni with languages such as Java, Perl/CGI, JSP, and now into PHP.

i can say PHP is the simpliest and easiest language among those you had learnt, am i right? :(
it's good if we start a thread about PHP, JSP, Java, VB.NET, etc and make a discussion :)

right now, i'm developing a windows application in VB.NET's windoze form. but i also had developed some apps in PHP, JSP, ASP, FoxPro, etc

Definatly, possibly the most popular server side programming language as well.

Yeah it is. PHP is made for server side scripting and it fits perfectly for those needs. JSP, on the other hand, is based on Java and takes a lot more coding to get the same thing done.

Oh I also played with Delphi years ago, didn't mention that before. :)

PHP is designed for web based applications that why it's simpler than the others. and what i like PHP at most is it's freeee and fast :D

Back in the ancient days (by computer time) I learned Pascal :eek:
Then took up FoxPro for our A-level project to design a pc-based system.
In uni, spent 1 semester 'officially' studying Java, after which 3 torturuous semesters of implementing Java in various aspects of life (er, I mean uni courses) followed.
Had a small peek to Java servlets for a few months in creating a web-based library system, but since it was a team project and I was in charge mostly of the database end I dealt most with SQL.

In final semester of uni, took up ASP to create an on-line store. We had a choice of PHP, JSP or ASP of course and I was one of those normal students who simply went for ASP because it was the easiest to learn and we had only less than 3 months to learn everything ourselves from scratch. The wizards were the ones to use JSP, while PHP was chosen either by those who've learnt it themselves before (yes, I heard it's quite easy to pick up) or by those who are into web-stuff.

Miraculously I managed never to touch C in 3 years of uni :dazed:

And after all those years lost in the computer language jungle, I returned to human civilization :)

Very similar, I remember when I studied pascal in my college days, yet after being at uni for a few years - I have yet to look at C or even C++.

I started with C++ at the uni. Second year I had to learn C because some of the courses were offered in C. I was also learning Java on my own. 3rd and 4th year I was using Java in almost all of my programming courses.

After uni:
VB, Oracle forms and Java. At work we use VB and oracle forms for any GUI based project with Oracle as our DB. For web-based projects we use JSP/Servlets running on Tomcat with either Oracle or MySQL DB.

I haven't really done much in PHP. I will only learn it if I have to use it in a project because it is kind of easy.
