If a person is interested in web designing and development, which language would be good for him: PHP or JAVA?
thank you so much for your suggestion
Designing is not a synonym for development, the two are very different. Designing deals with the user interface of the website/application, where as development is the functionality behind it. With that being said, you can design a website with CSS and HTML. However, development is more towards PHP or ASP. I prefer PHP.
Overall, it depends on what is being created for development. PHP suits most jobs though.
I agree with Jeffery. PHP is the best option to start with and basically the root for everything else.
They more complex your applications become you will find benefits of implementing libraries like jQuery or other options like Python and Ruby.
Facebook for example uses C++ to optimize CPU performance.
C# for web development? Wow. I just choked a little.
"One may suggest that JAVA is the OO heaven"
I think while we're off topic talking about software development, C++ would actually be "OO heaven", I would like to know who that "one" person was. Also, HTML would be the "base of the web", "base" implying it is a requirement for continuity.
"but, the language is not well designed and performs poorly."
I'm sure that's why PHP is the preferred server side programming language, it's also faster than ASP.
"Not to mention the huge amount of wrong information on the wild that would misguide you..."
Every language has it's share of unenlightened "tutors" who want to guide you, PHP has this, Java has this, every language has it.
