few of these websites are built on PHP like:

2. FaceBook: It is no secret that Facebook makes use of PHP in the user end.
3. Wikipedia: The best free source for all kinds of information over web Wikipedia is developed using a software called MediaWiki which is written in PHP.
4. Flickr: The web’s leading photo sharing site hosting over 2.5 billion images uses PHP.
5. WordPress is also developed using PHP and JavaScript and in addition to that JQuery library is also used for animating, event handling.

PHP is a server side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general purpose programming language. It’s really hard to judge 5 years down the road; but, based on the last five years of PHP, it will bright for at least another five. If this question was asked 5 years ago, we would have agreed that PHP was dead. That is not the case today.

PHP is in a renaissance. With the emergence of Composer and the PHP Framework Interop Group, huge strides have been made to reduce the cost of innovation in PHP. There is a vibrant framework community that is actually becoming modular. Laravel and Drupal (CMS) are excellent examples of that reduced cost.

PHP has its challenges but the community appears to meeting them head on. The next five years will be pivotal for determining its fate. If the community continues on like the last five, it will certainly be bright for many years to come.

PHP still provides you the following:
1. Speed which is just awesome where Rails and other barely made upto the mark.
2. Ability to understand and then code, there are no scaffolds; you are master of your own code.
3. Deriving new solutions, frameworks from ground up very easily.
4. Its easy to code
5. Its not just facebook using php, there are too many out there using it on a highly scalable point, for a piece of cake take as an example.

But there are some hiccups like:
1. It’s messy to write PHP. There isn’t any framework that can force you to write something clean in PHP
2. PHP is slow. It was never designed as a programming language. Hosting servers with PHP is cheap, but in computational terms, each PHP operations is very costly
3. The cloud support for PHP is just a flaky job

But the silver lining is that
1. 80% web uses it, so we have plenty of jobs.
2. As mentioned, Facebook was written in php (but was eventually moved to C++ using hiphop) so you can go as big as you can.
3. So much support, almost everything has been tried and tested with PHP, so you won’t get stuck.
