PHP is 25! πŸŽ‚ The Register…

PHP is 25! πŸŽ‚ The Register has a nice summary of its history that links to a 2017 talk given by Rasmus Lerdorf. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend this presentation, especially for developers.

JetBrains also has a PHP story worthy of your time with a timeline of important events.

The very first version of PHP was a simple set of Common Gateway Interface (CGI) binaries written in C. Originally used for tracking visits to Rasmus’s online rΓ©sumΓ©, he named the suite of scripts “Personal Home Page Tools” or “PHP Tools.” πŸ”¨
