ASP.Net vs. PHP

Migrating from PHP to ASP.NET: Not biased, I’m sure.

“This paper discusses the migration of PHP (PHP:Hypertext Preprocessor 4) to ASP.NET. It compares and contrasts the basic underlying syntax of PHP with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, as well as the underlying functionality and architecture of the two systems.”

  1. hi,

    as i am a programer/software engineer for years. now i am working on php and related tools. though previous i worked in .net and other microsoft technology.

    in market is dominated by microsoft for is ease use of technology and some places pre written tools helps developer much, but in other hans php is very less expensive and useful for internet or web development. though it has many back drop in feature but it is clearing its problem fast.

    in php5 it is enormous power like java becomes one of the technology leader in the market. .net technology in its own place and php in its own. but i think gradually php will be a dominated power in web development. best regards.

  3. Hi there,

    There is so much debate about “which is better” between ASP.NET and PHP. I have developed web applications is both for some time, and I have to stay that the main advantage PHP has is cost of deployment. Sadly (although some people will hate me for this) in my opionion this is one of the only big advantages.

    ASP.NET is also growing fast, the main point is the speed you can get applications up and finished. A web application that would take 5 months in PHP would take around 2 months in ASP.NET. If you think about it, what costs more? 3 months wages for a team of developers, or the additional cost for hosting on a microsoft server?

    It really depends on the situation, if it is the case that you need to deploy your own server in order to host an application then obviously this is going to bump the price up.

    In my opinion, removing cost from the equation, ASP.NET wins hands down. With the increase in AJAX, ASP.NET has introdroduced ATLAS which will allow you to AJAX enable a website with just a few lines of code! ATLAS allows for AJAX to be written in the background.

    Like I said, this is just my opinion, I am not on either side and am happy to be proved wrong. If any PHP fans have an opinion I would love to hear it.

  4. I really do not think PHP can compete ASP.NET. My reasons 1- PHP websites crash so much, Even in zend website you always see the errors. 2- ASP.NET 2.0 is great for enterprise development and it comes with Enterprise Library, Portal framework, MasterPages and a very great model for software development which I guess comes from Borland, not MS. 3- ASP.NET 2.0 is wondefully fast! Trust me, make two pages with the same masterpage but just different contens and navigate between them.

  5. I am a Web Developer I Use PHP. As I understand ASP.NET is a frame work, its not fair to compare a frame work with PHP directly which is a scripting language. PHP Cake or PHP Horde are popular frame works which make PHP Development Faster. Of course with any frame work you lack the same level of configuration and understanding of exactly what is going on behind all those functions or code.

    I Personally Find PHP itself to be a great language to choose from, and once mastered development just like any language, It is really fast to get a website up and running. One Big Benefit of PHP is that it was built with web development in mind which I feel makes it a great choice.
