Programming Languages at War – PHP Vs Angular
The most frequently asked question in any computer student ‘s career is “Which Programming Languages do you use?” Well, the answer comes in many words which depend on the person.
Referring the latest technical achievements, tech giants have launched various programming languages with their own pros and cons to face. Every day, we browse the Internet which is a product of various known/unknown languages. And it’s completely fine for non-tech guys to have this reputation of non-coder. But a tech-guy WILL understand the hardships while building a feature or an application (software/website/. . .)
How Programming Languages help the web communities?
Now we shall discuss the Similarities and Differences between these languages.
After 1995, PHP became the major choice for Web Developers to choose for server-side scripting. As it is easier, more reliable. Acc. to a study, approximately 92% of websites were built in PHP. With the development of CMS like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla any website or a simple blog can be built within minutes. And which is why the demand has raised in a blink of time. And it is one cheapest way to build web pages.
Two different worlds they are as we had discussed. But when considering the backend functionalities that they work on, both seem a bit equal on their sides. PHP and Node.js generate similar kind of output, both can be used for backend scripting.As PHP and Node.js have similar kind of output. So both of them can be used for backend scripting.
Both languages are best suits for any Beginner or a Veterans.
The developers should choose one language that can finish different tasks of easily thus decreasing the work load.
Any PHP developer will say this about programming languages. Using PHP is much more simple than that of Node.js. While working on PHP just needs to write the code in between <?php and ?>. This code directly gets and puts data with a good connection to the MySQL database. Whereas, writing a program in Node.js takes much more lines of code making it harder than PHP.
So, the best PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE is?
- Working with Content Management System
- Stacks like LAMPP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP)

- Front-end technologies involvng AngularJS, jQuery, Backbone.js, ReactJS, Ember.js etc.
- Server-side technologies involving MongoDB, Node.js, Express.js, etc.
Any programming language which fits the necessity to solve the requirement is often the best among others.
