    PHP tags

    When PHP parses a file, it looks for opening and closing tags, which are   and ?> which tell PHP to start and stop interpreting the code between them. Parsing in this manner allows PHP to be embedded in all sorts of different documents, as everything outside of a pair of opening and closing tags is ignored by the PHP parser. PHP includes a short echo tag  which is a short-hand to the more verbose  PHP also allows for short open tag  (which is discouraged since it is only available if enabled using the short_open_tag php.ini configuration file directive, or if PHP was configured with the –enable-short-tags option).

    Open Source Licenses Types

    Every once in a while, community uproar over contentious open source licensing in a popular product will grab headlines, causing all of us to debate what open source licenses are really about. Last year it was the Apache Foundation’s ban of components with Facebook React’s contentious patent clause which caused a stir that sent developers running for the Reddit boards. These past few months, Redis Labs and MongoDB have made changes in the open source licenses of some of their most popular open source databases, leaving many to scratch their heads, highlighting the need to have open source licenses explained in human speak. The simplest explanation is that open source licenses are legal and binding contracts…

    What is open source?

    The term open source refers to something people can modify and share because its design is publicly accessible. Source: opensource.The term originated in the context of software development to designate a specific approach to creating computer programs. Today, however, “open source” designates a broader set of values—what we call “the open source way.” Open source projects, products, or initiatives embrace and celebrate principles of open exchange, collaborative participation, rapid prototyping, transparency, meritocracy, and community-oriented development. What is open source software? Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance. “Source code” is the part of software that most computer users don’t ever see; it’s the code…

    Best Python Frameworks

    What do Python programmers need to make their life easier? The answer is frameworks. By automating the implementation of redundant tasks, frameworks cut development time and enable developers to focus greatly on application logic rather than routine elements. Because it is one of the leading programming languages, there is no scarcity of frameworks for Python. Different frameworks have their own set of advantages and issues. Hence, the selection needs to be made on the basis of project requirements and developer preference. There are primarily three types of Python frameworks, namely full-stack, micro-framework, and asynchronous. Before moving onto discussing the best Python frameworks to go for in 2020, let’s first take a…

    What is Python? Powerful, intuitive programming

    Why the Python programming language shines for data science, machine learning, systems automation, web and API development, and more Source: Infoworld.comDating from 1991, the Python programming language was considered a gap-filler, a way to write scripts that “automate the boring stuff” (as one popular book on learning Python put it) or to rapidly prototype applications that will be implemented in other languages. However, over the past few years, Python has emerged as a first-class citizen in modern software development, infrastructure management, and data analysis. It is no longer a back-room utility language, but a major force in web application creation and systems management, and a key driver of the explosion in big…

    Your First PHP page

    Create a file named helloworld.php and put it in your web server’s root directory (DOCUMENT_ROOT) with the following content: Example #1 Our first PHP script: helloworld.php Use your browser to access the file with your web server’s URL, ending with the /helloworld.php file reference. When developing locally this URL will be something like http://localhost/helloworld.php or http://127.0.0.1/helloworld.php but this depends on the web server’s configuration. If everything is configured correctly, this file will be parsed by PHP and the following output will be sent to your browser: This program is extremely simple and you really did not need to use PHP to create a page like this. All it does is display: Hello World using the PHP echo statement. Note that the file does not…

    What do I need to write a PHP program

    In this tutorial we assume that your web server has activated support for PHP and that all files ending in .php are handled by PHP. If your server supports PHP, then you do not need to do anything. Just create your .php files, put them in your web directory and the server will automatically parse them for you. There is no need to compile anything nor do you need to install any extra tools. Think of these PHP-enabled files as simple HTML files with a whole new family of magical tags that let you do all sorts of things. Let us say you want to save precious bandwidth and develop locally. In this case,…
