LAMP Development (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl/Python)

The open source LAMP stack is one of the most popular platforms for building web applications. LAMP offers the web developer a rich set of tools that are freely available, easily configured, and very robust. They are in a constant state of development and improvement, adding features suggested by the user community at large.

One of the key advantages of LAMP stack is the complete availability of source code. It is relatively easy to switch vendors and developers, customize code, or fix critical bugs. It is also a low cost solution since there are no licensing costs for the underlying platform. In particular, the rich set of LAMP stack based frameworks and applications for building consumer web, community and web 2.0 applications makes it an ideal choice for building this type of software.
