Top PHP Developer related questions
If you hire a freelance PHP developer, they usually have a desktop or laptop to do the programming. All you have to provide is access to your server and IT infrastructure. Suppose you hire a developer for a long-term project. In that case, you may have to provide them with a company laptop or desktop along with whatever hardware and software required to work on your PHP-developed website, app or program.
Yes, PHP is as secure as any other programming language, but note that PHP is an open-source code that may still be hacked. You can reduce the risk of getting hacked by hiring an experienced PHP programmer. More experienced programmers are aware of the security vulnerabilities that may be unique to PHP and know how to fix them. Be sure to read the ratings and reviews of potential Taskers to book an experienced programmer.
Apart from experience and a mastery of basic PHP, look for a developer with the necessary soft skills. This includes problem-solving ability, flexibility and social skills. PHP-developed websites, apps or programs aren’t created in a vacuum - this is a product of collaboration with other people like front-end developers, graphic artists and marketing professionals. Your PHP developer should know how to balance the needs and wants of users, marketers, and the programming language’s limits.
This is the latest version of the PHP coding language. If you hire a PHP developer, they are likely already using it. The latest version is dubbed 8.0 and comes with a lot of new updates. One of these updates is Frameworks, which contains prewritten pieces of code that save time and features that can organise code and reduce repetitive code.
No, PHP software is open-source and free! When using PHP, you can buy your server or pay a small subscription fee to another company to host your website. You can also pay a freelance PHP developer’s hourly rate to start. Updates to improve testing, security and functionality are likewise accessible and released regularly, and you can customise and modify the software as you see fit.
Consider that 73% of all websites use PHP, including popular websites and apps like Facebook and Wikipedia. PHP is popular due to its proven effectiveness and security. Although this programming language is free, there’s a massive community behind it that constantly tests, supports, and improves its features. You can find a large pool of PHP developers who can help implement your vision for your website, software or app - and you can find them here on Airtasker!
What do PHP developer services include?
PHP developer services include all the activities necessary for your PHP web development. Taskers can set up and maintain your website, app or program with PHP programming. This can also include troubleshooting and testing the code after your website, program, or app is up, or you have an existing one that needs these services.
Planning your website
Before your Tasker can start programming, your Tasker can help plan on how to create your website, software or app from the ground up. They can work with your marketing team and plan the features and functions to program into your app, program or website. Remember that you can hire more people if you need to expand your marketing team.
Once your objectives are set and planning is done, your hired Tasker can work on the PHP programming. As they build your product and incorporate the planned features at this stage, note that you may need to hire someone to do the graphics for your website, app or software.
You can also book the services of a PHP developer Tasker to update your existing website, app or program and keep it in line with modern PHP development. This process takes a lot of work and man-hours, so why not provide coffee for your team?
Troubleshooting and maintenance
After the programming is complete, a Tasker can do important back-end tasks like applying updates and testing your PHP-developed assets to check for bugs and security vulnerabilities. They can track updates and install new debugging tools, security features and other tools as they are released. Some Taskers can ensure that testing becomes continually more efficient and give more detailed reports.
A Tasker can perform or apply the necessary fixes as bugs arise and check that your system is up-to-date against cybersecurity threats. Upon request, some Taskers can keep to a regular maintenance schedule as the PHP software releases updates. Note that you may need to engage the PHP developer as needed if bugs, cyberattacks or other issues occur.
