PHP is a server-side scripting language designed primarily for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. The name was originally an abbreviation for "Personal Home Page".

Treehouse has two entire tracks and a number of extra courses for it starting with Beginner PHP i f you're interested in learning it.
