PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language for creating dynamic and interactive websites. PHP is the widely-used, free, and efficient alternative to competitors such as Microsoft’s ASP. PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be embedded directly into the HTML code. SQL (Structured Query Language) is an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard for accessing database systems. SQL statements are used to retrieve and update data in a database. The CPP certification for PHP Professionals assesses the candidate for developing PHP based applications. The certification tests the candidates on various areas in developing PHP based software which includes knowledge of installation, usage, syntax and semantics of PHP programming language.
