PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Pre-processor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

PHP is one of the main languages used in dynamic web development. It’s one of the oldest language and a common component in the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). If you want to create a website or any back-end web service, PHP is one of the main languages you can choose from. If you need revisions to an existing application that runs on a Linux server, it’s common for the back-end coding to be done with PHP.

About PHP Developers

PHP developers are often simply called “back-end engineers.” A PHP developer is responsible for writing server-side web application logic. PHP developers usually develop back-end components, connect the application with the other (often third-party) web services, and support the front-end developers by integrating their work with the application.

They’re turn client’s specifications into a workable, tangible product that runs on a web server. Although PHP can run in a Windows environment, it’s more commonly used on Linux servers with Apache running as the web client. Many PHP developers package their applications this way with Linux and Apache to make it easier for the client to host it.

PHP developers code the functionality and brings an app to life. Collaborating with designers, they ensure that the front-end application is appealing to users. You may find that some PHP developers have front-end design skills, but often times, they work with UI and UX designers to create a user interface that’s engaging and supported by solid back-end functionality.

What Can You Expect from a PHP Developer?

It is a PHP Developer's job to write, test and maintain the code for web pages and computer graphics programs. They use PHP, a widely used scripting language, to build websites, programs and applications that computers follow to perform functions. They are also responsible for writing, troubleshooting, testing and maintaining the source code for computer programs. If needed, PHP Developers also assist team members in problem solving.

A PHP developer should be able to visualize your application and what you need based on your conversations and documentation (if you have any). They should be able to understand your business so that they can provide you with an application that supports your goals and business logic.

PHP developers mainly create two types of applications: web apps with a database background, and APIs that provide your existing software and data to mobile apps and other developers. PHP code powers the back end of a web app, so a PHP developer will design and architect your code and the way it works to support the front end. APIs are often used when developers or apps need to query your internal data, and they allow you to provide this data to the outside world. For instance, your app might pull a list of tweets from Twitter’s API. A PHP developer will read the API documentation and implement it into your website. APIs are also used with some mobile apps to power the app’s data services.

Deliverables could be full source code files, or some developers help you upload the code to your web server of your choice choice. If you’re building a website from scratch, it’s vital that you choose a developer with the skills necessary to tackle a project from the ground up. A senior-level developer will know how to manage a project (they might assign a project manager), set expectations, estimate costs, and give you organized, scalable code that you can work with for years.

Just like other development areas, PHP developers have a variety of skill sets and levels. Senior-level PHP experts often have several other languages in their arsenal. They should be able to design a full application from the ground up. Junior-level developers have a few years of experience, but they often need to work with, or have their work reviewed by, a senior-level developer to ensure that code is efficient and properly written.

Defining Your Project

A developer can only do as good of a job as the specifications or information they get from the client. Communication is key so that your PHP developer fully understands your concepts and goals. When you post a project, you must be able to communicate key elements so that you can get the best estimates from the best developers.

Before you post a project request or talk to developers, you should sit down and map out your idea. This can be done using images, presentations, or other types of documentation. For instance, you can draw your own wireframes and then explain each concept in writing. Developers bidding on your project can get a better idea of what needs to be done and estimate far more accurately.

It can be difficult for a client to understand the duration of a project and its cost, but a developer can sit down and discuss project scope, a reasonable timeline, and any deliverables that you can expect during the project’s development process.

Writing a Project Description

Once you know what you want from your end product, it’s time to write your project description. You need to be concise but provide enough detail to attract top developers. You can attach documents and provide video links to your project description to help developers better understand your goals.

Below is one sample of how a PHP project description may look. Keep in mind that many people use the term “job description,” but a full job description is only needed for employees. When engaging a freelancer as an independent contractor, you typically just need a statement of work, job post, or any other document that describes the work to be done.

Title: PHP Developer Needed to Build E-Commerce Website

Description: We need a PHP developer to build an e-commerce platform for our website. We have a rough wireframe document that explains the front end and the back end. We need help determining back-end architecture, so we want a developer to determine the way it will be built. We currently have hosting and need help uploading the code after it’s finished. The e-commerce store will host our product catalogue, take orders, allow customers to sign up, and then send email reminders to customers that left products in their shopping cart.

You can modify this description to better fit what you’re looking for, but it gives the basic requirements that a PHP development project might have.

PHP projects can take a long time, so expect a big project to take several months. PHP projects may require sit-downs to understand your requirements, design, coding, prototyping, and testing. All of these extend the deadline and can require several months for larger projects. A developer might even add a small percentage of time to the duration to ensure that deadlines are met. As with any project, the more descriptive your post is and the more you communicate with your programmer, the smoother the process will be.

If you’ve any idea or concept of application and you decide to build your application concept in best programming language, Python is on top of the table. But you may be asking yourself,

What exactly can I use Python for?”

The app development market is greedy but flexible. Trends define the need, and needs define actual trends. Python is now a trend, no doubt about it. Python is also really friendly, thanks to its popularity and the helpful community.

Python is so good, rather than describing what it can do, it’s actually faster to say what Python can’t do. Python is a high-level general purpose programming language that gives multiple paradigms like object-orientation, and structural and functional programming for software development. It works on cross-platform operating systems and may be used across to develop a wide range of applications including those intended for image processing, text processing, web, and enterprise level using scientific, numeric and data from network. According to Stack Overflow, Python is the fastest-growing programming language in the world, and it will still grow even faster. It’s already well recognised as a really universal, versatile, stable, and easy to learn programming language.

The growth rate of python wasn't something easy to realise. There are various attributes of python programming tool which has provided it with a tremendous successful journey. Python features a major role in the latest technologies of current and future times like machine learning and artificial intelligence. 

Who uses Python

Python is used almost everywhere. Just take a glance at the following list (which isn't exhaustive). the purpose is that Python will apply to whatever you’re interested in, no matter what it is.

  • In internet search: Google used Python everywhere in its early development phase.
  • In Space: The International Space Station’s Robonaut 2 robot uses Python for its central command system. Python is planned to be used during a European mission to Mars in 2020 to gather soil samples.
  • Physics Laboratory: Python helps understand the data analysis from some atom smashing experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
  • In astronomy: The MeerKat astronomical telescope array (the largest astronomical telescope within the Southern Hemisphere) uses Python for its control and monitoring systems.
  • In movie studios: Industrial Light and Magic (Star Wars geniuses) uses Python to automate its movie production processes. Side Effects Software’s computer generated imagery program Houdini uses Python for its programming interface and to script the engine.
  • In games: Activision uses Python for building games, testing, and analysing stuff. They even use Python to search out people cheating by boosting one another.
  • In music/video industry: Spotify music streaming service uses Python to send you music. Netflix uses Python to make sure movies play (stream) no end. Python is used a lot for YouTube.
  • In medicine: The Nodality company uses Python to handle information that they use to search for a cure to cancer.

What to do with Python

With Python, you'll learn to create such things as a math trainer for practicing your times tables or an easy encryption (a secret code) program. And when you’ve honed your skills over time, there are other things you’ll be able to do, such as:

  • Using Tkinter (or other widget sets), you can write user applications that use graphics rather than just text to interact with the user.
  • You can extend other programs like Blender (a 3D modeling program), GIMP (a 2D photo-retouching program), and LibreOffice (office programs), among many others by writing custom scripts.
  • You can write games with graphics using Tkinter or the Pygame or Kivy libraries.
  • You can use the matplotlib library to draw complex graphs for your math or science courses.
  • You can design a website using web frameworks that are based on Python like Django and Flask have recently become very popular for web development.
  • You can use python libraries for machine learning, data science and data visualization.
  • Using Python scripting you can writing small programs for design automate simple tasks.
  • Using the openCV library, you can experiment with computer vision. People who are into robotics use it to help their robots see and grab things and to avoid obstacles when moving.

Whatever you want it to do, there’s a good chance someone has already written code to do it or to help you to do it yourself.

Application of Python

  1. Web frameworks and web application: Python has been used to create a web frameworks including CherryPy, Django, TurboGears, Bottle, Flask etc. These frameworks provide standard libraries and modules which simplify tasks associated with content management, interaction with database and interfacing with different internet protocols like HTTP, SMTP, XML-RPC, FTP and POP. Plone, a content management system; ERP5, an open source ERP which is employed in aerospace, apparel and banking; Odoo- a consolidated suite of business applications; and Google App engine are some of the popular web applications based on Python.
  2. GUI based desktop application: Python has simple and the ability to work on multiple operating systems which make it a desirable choice for developing desktop-based applications. There are various GUI toolkits available which help developers to create highly functional Graphical User Interface (GUI). The various applications developed using Python includes image processing, graphics design, games, scientific and computational application.
  3. Enterprise and business application: With features that include special libraries, extensibility, scalability and simply readable syntax, Python may be a suitable coding language for customizing larger applications. Reddit, which was originally written in Common Lips, was rewritten in Python in 2005. Python also contributed in a very large part to functionality in YouTube.
  4. Language developement: Python’s design and module architecture has influenced development of various languages. Boo language uses an object model, syntax and indentation, almost like Python. Further, syntax of languages like Apple’s Swift, CoffeeScript, Cobra, and OCaml all share similarity with Python.
  5. Operating systems: Python is usually an integral part of Linux distributions. as an example, Ubuntu’s Ubiquity Installer, and Fedora’s and Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s Anaconda Installer are written in Python. Gentoo Linux makes use of Python for Portage, its package management system.

  6. Loops and array
  7. Classes
  8. File input and output
  9. Advanced topic in python

 

Here are some tips to help you make the new concepts you are learning as a beginner programmer:

  1. Code Everyday: Consistency is very important when you are learning a new language. We recommend making a commitment to code every day.
  2. Write it out: As you progress on your journey as a new programmer, you may wonder if you should be taking notes. This will be especially beneficial for those working towards the goal of becoming a full-time developer, as many interviews will involve writing code on a whiteboard.
  3. Go Interactive: Whether you are learning about basic Python data structures (strings, lists, dictionaries, etc.) for the first time, or you are debugging an application, the interactive Python shell will be one of your best learning tools.
  4. Become bug hunter: Once you begin writing complicated programs that you just can run into bugs in your code. It happens to all or any of us! Don’t let bugs frustrate you. Instead, embrace these moments proudly and consider yourself as a bug bounty hunter.
  5. Surround yourself with others: It is extremely important when you are learning to code in Python that you simply surround yourself with others who are learning additionally. This may allow you to share the information and tricks you learn on the approach.
  6. Teach: It is said that the most effective way to learn something is to teach it. This is often true once you are learning Python. There are many ways to try to do this: white boarding with other Python lovers, writing blog posts explaining recently learned ideas, recording videos during which you explain something you learned, or simply talking to yourself at your computer.
  7. Pair program: Pair programming is a technique that involves two developers working to complete a task. The two developers switch between them. One developer writes the code, while other helps guide the problem solving and reviews the code as it is written. Switch frequently to get the benefit of both sides.
  8. Build something: For beginners, there are many small exercises that will really help you become confident with Python.
