Compared to ASP, PHP is very easy to pick up and learn a little at a time.
However, businesses do not readily embrace PHP for many reasons. A great deal of companies are running operating systems such as Windows Server 2003 or one of the Window NTs, which have been optimized to run Microsoft’s proprietary language ASP.
As far as programming languages go, ASP is definitely not as straightforward as PHP. The language has a “plethora”(ndr. An excess of blood in the circulatory system or in one organ or area) of confusing programming patterns that will take a while to learn. Besides that difficulty, there is also much less free information on the internet
ASP and ASP.NET are widely used in the business world
Are you looking for a job and have time and resources to learn a rather difficult technology? Learn ASP. Want to program in your spare time, as more of a hobby than a career? PHP will treat you just fine
