Welcome Code Crew!
Your great interest of learning take you here. I will try to explain PHP in very simple word, hopefully that will be really worthy for you.
Before begining of the tutorial please make sure you have some basic knowledge of programming language. If you are from the background of Computer science then probably you have the knowledge of C / C++ which will be very useful to understand the basic. If you are from different background just keep learning hopefully your invested time will be worthy somehow at the end of the tutorial.

Also it’s programming lanuage and use for application you can’t use it for desktop application. It’s completly build for website. Also PHP is called server side language.
