The world’s favorite programming language now comes with more things to love. PHP 7 is finally here, with spankin’ new enhancements to make your app and websites more powerful.
PHP is a popular server-side programming language that now also doubles as a general programming language for building apps. The freedom of coding in PHP, as well as ease in learning the language has maintained PHP as the go to language for many developers.
