Core PHP Development

Core PHP is a very basic PHP programming language; it is used to create dynamic web pages. There are basically two types of web applications: (1) Dynamic and (2) Static, but more about that later at the training session. Core PHP works without any extra library, which a PHP framework cannot, so it is very important to learn core of principle PHP programming to create dynamic web applications. Core PHP uses the purest form of PHP script. A developer needs to know the language thoroughly in order to write a clear and concise code using core PHP.
