Benefits of developing a web application in PHP

There are a lot of different ways to build an online solution, so what advantages could our PHP bring your company or organisation?

The beauty of PHP is that it is an open source technology, meaning you won't have to cover the overheads of massive licencing fees as you would with proprietary systems.

PHP has a large community that explore the latest in how the technology is used and support each other. In addition, they help build new code libraries and frameworks that speed the process up even further.
