WHAT PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES ARE USED IN THE CREATION OF SITES
The development of the IT sphere, namely the growing demand for services for the creation and search engine promotion of web sites, has led to the emergence of many so-called webmasters who are ready to perform all work on the site and its further support. Needless to say, most of these projects were created with the help of free designers, while the “masters” themselves have only a theoretical understanding of the technical component of a high-quality web resource. Web site design, filling, usability thoughtfulness – all this, of course, is important. But a technically faulty site, with errors in the code, is simply doomed to failure.
Briefly about common programming languages
PHP It is based on the HTML markup language. PHP is a general-purpose scripting language; source code is open source. The syntax is fairly easy to learn, has many common features with C, Java and Perl. The main advantage of PHP is that with it, developers can quickly create dynamically generated web pages. With professional language proficiency, it can be used to perform other tasks.
Python In Russian, it is distributed as “python”. A high-level general-purpose programming language focused on improving developer productivity and code readability. Python kernel syntax is minimal. At the same time, the standard library includes a large amount of useful functions.
Ruby In Russian, it is distributed as “rub.” A dynamic, reflective, interpreted, high-level programming language for fast and convenient object-oriented programming. The language has an operating system independent implementation of multithreading, strict dynamic typing, a garbage collector and many other features. In terms of syntax, it is close to Perl and Eiffel, and in object-oriented approach, to Smalltalk. Also some features of the language are taken from Python.
ASP. The developer of this language is Microsoft. The technology allows you to develop applications for the WWW. ASP is easy and fast. Platforms for ASP: Windows NT and IIS (Internet Information Server). It is not entirely correct to call ASP a language; rather, it is the technology for connecting the program to Web pages. A simple scripting language and the ability to use external COM components is the whole secret of ASP success.
Areas of use of the language are very extensive:
Creation of web pages that may change after loading a document
Local Problem Solving
Validation of literacy filling out forms by the user before they are sent to the server
Make changes to the page: work with tags, change styles, write text
Respond to events (e.g. mouse clicks) and perform a specific function
Display messages, verify data, set and read cookies
Download data without reloading the page, etc.
Perl Initially, this language was a means for connecting programs that perform various functions into a single script, which allows solving a complex of tasks: word processing, administration, etc. Today, Perl is the primary tool for building CGI applications. It is used to administer web servers and other systems. The simplicity and speed of writing scripts in this language led to its adaptation to platforms such as Windows, Mac, etc. Perl – open and accessible, the source code of the interpreter can be obtained for free.
Is a lot of knowledge useful?
The basics of programming are taught in school computer science lessons. Almost everyone faced Delfi and Pascal. More complex languages require a much more serious approach to learning. A certain mentality – mathematical and logical, and, of course, the desire to become an expert in their field will help a novice programmer achieve success. Do not try to learn all languages at once. It is better to know one well than to have fragmentary knowledge of five. Each programming language has common principles, all of them are built on the logic of actions, so with experience, mastering new technologies will become faster and easier. Many can modify and copy ready-made codes, but not all programmers can become a real “artist”, and not imitators.
