I'm planning to start a series of posts showing my first impressions as someone inexperienced in programming who had his first impressions in Python. I'll try to post every time I finish studying so that the original feeling is still clear.
While messing around on Discord, I found a discussion about this language and how it was useful in web development. It wasn't very long and not all that interesting, but they said something that really caught my attention.
I really like python and my focus is on web development, so why not try it out?
This thought was what made me start looking for online resources, a task that apparently I'm not intelligent enough to do, so I asked on Discord.
PHP is a scripting language specialized in web development and that can be embedded inside HTML and is executed on the server, meaning no shady scripts running on the client computer and more freedom working with sensitive data.
PHP can be manually installed by itself, or so I was told, but the easiest way when learning is through those already configured packages, like WAMP, LAMP and XAMPP. People from discord recommended using XAMPP, so I'll be sticking with it for now. Having installed it, everything left is understanding how it works.
