I have worked extensively in developing web applications using PHP and ASP.NET, but one of the questions that I'm constantly asked by customers is whether to move forward with a php website or an asp.net website.
So naturally the first thing that comes to mind is to answer the question like this:
PHP is open-source and ASP.NET is from Microsoft.
Usually after something like that is said the customer has a blank look on there face. Apparently the fact that one is open source and the other isn't doesn't really faze them. And for good reason, because when I first heard it, it really doesn't tell me much.
I know from working with both that each have their differences when it comes to developing websites.
My question is what are differences between ASP.NET and PHP as far as
- Average Development Time
I am trying to compile a list of facts to be able to compare with the customer so that an informed choice on the appropriate development platform can be made.
