Web developers are normal people. Do you agree? Most probably if you are reading this article I am talking about you. So look in the mirror…are you normal? If you are a developer you would know about, or at least have heard about PHP. PHP is now being used by hundreds of thousands of developers, and it’s installed on several million sites across the Internet. We’re talking over 20% of the domains on the Internet people! So, how do you think technology like this was created then? Do you think it was built by a team in the massive building of a large company? Wrong…You are completely wrong. It was made by a single person (he happened to come from Canada if you feel that is relevant) who was just trying to make a simple set of Perl scripts that would see how much traffic was going to his online resume. Can you believe it? This is how technology evolves my friends. Normal people like you have tasks they need to complete and using a little bit of ingenuity, new ways of doing things are born. These small new ideas then help humanity to go forward as a whole species…in this case because now it is much easier to create a website on the Internet.
