KillerPHP #2: Server-side vs. client-side programming

In this video I introduce you to fundamental concepts that are common to all database driven web programming languages.

In a nutshell, I show you that PHP scripts actually run on the web server. This in contrast to a language like Javascript, that actually runs on your home computer. This may seem like a nerd-nuance, but in fact, understanding this plays a major role in how you look at building dynamic web sites.


Questions from this video:

  • Server-side vs Client-side programming languages?
  • How server side requests are processed?
