Can you tell me what does PHP and MySQL do for websites and how long do they take to learn? Does one need to know these two, in order to design a website site.
Also what does dreamweaver and flash do for websites and how long do they take to learn.
Which of the above is absolutely necessary to know in order to design a website and which is optional.
Greetings, S. Mahabir,
PHP is a server side language which helps you to perform various things in the server, such as make new directories, send emails, create and manage login/registration pages, etc.
MYSQL is a database query language which helps you to create new databases, tables, save data inside tables, retrieve from tables, alter , etc.
Actually Data base is also lives inside the server, so it is important to learn a server side programming language such as PHP , in order to work with databases. For an examples, if you ever want to develop a website which collects and save some sort of information, such as user details, login details, then it is important to learn PHP (or any server side language such as .NET,) and with that query language, such as MySQL, etc.
Dreamweaver is a software which helps you to design and develop websites.
Flash comes to the scene when you need to animate something. You can't design Flash using Dreamweaver, you have to have Adobe Flash software.
I hope I cleared your doubts.
Feel free to buzz me if there's any.
