    Great post to read. I just drop here to read.

    I believe PHP is doing great as a web development language. however you should have through knowledge of SQL, HTML, XML, Javascript, CSS as a professional php developer.

    Paul D –

    There are many tutorials on the web – use your favorite search engine to find them. Try to do all the examples in the tutorials, but also think of additional things you can do and go beyond just what they ask you to do in the tutorial. Change around what it does so you can really get to know how to use the language. Build something similar to the tutorial example, but do it from scratch on your own as you finish each section. Pretty soon you’ll know the language well enough. Good luck!

    1. Oracle acquired sun. Will it effect usage of Java by companies using open source
    technologies? and thus the numbers of jobs in java?
    2. Sun owns MySQL. What will be MySQL demand in future? Will oracle neglect it’s further
    3. Which is in more demand – PHP/Ruby/Python/Perl?
