PHP as career - Best Decision

Choosing career in PHP was best decision ever, Since than I have learned so many technologies and still learning everyday. Now I love coding and Php totally rocks in web development. If you want some reasons why you should choose your career in Php, Here you are my top 5 reasons.

1. Web Development: Today more than 60% websites are using PHP scripting language. Websites like Yahoo, Wikipedia, Facebook, Digg, Myspace are some of the big names those are using PHP. Think about E-commerce website, Blogs, Social Media and Networking Websites, and many more that you can imagine in your mind, is possible to implement trough PHP and its supportive tools. There is lot to learn about this powerful language. So If you would like to work in PHP be ready to face all the challenges, everyday you will face something new.

2. Open Source: One good thing about PHP, it’s an open source application. It’s free and for it’s support there are worldwide professionals who will help you out to resolve any related issue. Php community is more than enough to learn PHP. One more benefit of being a PHP developer you can get whole stack of open source software (Apache, Linux, MySql and so on) and the benefit we are getting from being able to change the source code if we want to, but after getting experience with Php you should go for frameworks.PHP frameworks are also available under open source license. To jump start your practice on php just install bundled application Xampp or Wamp. For an editor I will suggest you Eclipse or Netbeans IDE. Be ready to enjoy the power of open source.


3. OOPS: Object-oriented programming was introduced in Php5. Concepts like Inheritance, Polymorphism, and Encapsulation are well and good to develop enterprise systems. Applications like Magento, WordPress and Joomla are some examples of object-oriented programming. Those who are coming from a background of Java and C++ they can easily use power of Php as an object oriented language.

4. Easy to learn: Syntax of Php resembles with C, Perl and Java with improvements. The most easy and fun way to learn PHP is by doing it through practical examples. On Internet you can find good resource to learn Php fast and free, still the best is

5. Framework Availability: Number of frameworks are available for Php language. These frameworks made Php as one of the fast and most popular language for the web development. Advantage of using a framework is fast development due to code reuse, also they cut down errors by using tested and proven code.

List of popular Php framework are as follow:

  • Zend
  • CakePHP
  • CodeIgniter
  • Akelos
  • Symfony

One more interesting thing about Php is that you can also build compiler based applications, Magento is using this concept now in their e-commerce application. In Php it is also possible that application that are build in other language can be part of our development. For example most of the extensions in Php are build using C language.

I know I can not cover each and everything here but If you have decided to make a career in php remember it’s not just Php, you have to try hard for other applications ( Mysql, Js, Html and so on ). Remember coding in Php is not a big deal but your code should be perfect it’s your responsibility. Making you code secure or not it’s upon you not on any language. Go for perfection.
