The language, in all its entirety, is robust, open source, extendible, supports a large amount of databases, and has low maintenance and development cost along with being highly sophisticated and advanced at the same time.
From a developer’s perspective, PHP is easy to code in. Then again, since it is open source, it gives a large playground to more vision oriented programmers who can create and innovate with the language.
