Welcome to the first post of Ask About PHP, the site that’s dedicated to bringing PHP to the everyday person. I’m sure you can find many great resources on how to get started with PHP on the web and in print, but many of these resources assume you have some background in IT, or programming or understand the workings of the Internet in some way. Here, I’m going to try to keep it simple.

I hope, this site will one day be a useful place to guide those of you who wants to start to carve a corner of the ‘Great Web’ for yourself but you don’t know where to start. Websites of today are no longer just ‘pages’ of static information – with technology like PHP, you can have your own online shop, your own blog – your own whatever.

So why PHP? Well, it’s as good a place to start as any, and I like PHP – it’s useful for everyone who wants to start or operate their own website.

Anyway, do drop me a line to say hello at webbie@askaboutphp.com

Have a nice day!
