PHP Training for WordPress is our next step towards being Top WordPress Developers in 2019. This is Task 53 and Part # 1 of PHP Training Series under WordPress Spartans 300 Series that we started 3 months ago.

PHP is a wonderful server side programming language. WordPress , as CMS, is built on php and MySQL. There are millions of php websites and apps all over the world. It’s loosely typed langauge and its syntax is very much similar to other programming languages.

In this task, we first discussed about historical background of PHP as programming language (1994 – 1995 as Wikipedia states).

PHP stands for Personal Homepage or widely known as Hypertext Preprocessor. It’s used to get, post, render, fetch , create data or information the dynamic way. There are hundreds of built in functions that we can use easily. It’s very powerful language. We discussed the Syntax of PHP and we tried to answer the following question:

1) How to implement HTML within PHP and vice versa. We also experimented with parse errors and T-String errors (Debugging Practice starts from this point onward).

Then we started our discussion of Data Types:

1) String
2) Integer
3) Float (Doubles or Decimal Points)
4) Boolean (or bool as PHP reads i.e. TRUE or FALSE statements used to output and check loop validity etc.
5) Arrays

We practiced variables in php and tried to elaborate the difference between echo and print commands.

Echo is the fastest command hence it’s widely used worldwide.

We also explored html and php structure of WordPress Twenty Nineteen Theme ( Default WP Theme).

In next task, we’ll continue our discussion of Data Types, Variables and Arrays along with functions and loops etc.
