Hire a PHP Developer

From a simple script or code fix to more complicated application development, we have thousands of PHP developers with a large variety of skill sets. So, you've got a task that needs sorting quick-smart and you're looking to hire a freelancing professional who's an absolute wizard at PHP. Before you green light that process, we should probably get you better acquainted with the work involved in what you're about to commission. Trust us, having a basic working knowledge of what you're asking could save you some miscommunication (and precious time and/or money) in the long run...You should hire a PHP freelancer because while PHP is considered to be on the lower end of coding language difficulty scale, it's still not exactly a piece of cake to learn from scratch. (For the record: when it comes to must-learn web development fundamentals, PHP as a coding language sits slightly above the baseline language trio that is HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.) Also, if you have a decently sized database going on in the background of your site, you'll want a PHP expert to setup ways to make your online operation more efficient via storage capacity management and loading speed optimization.

What is PHP?

PHP is a programming language used often in web development. In modern parlance, PHP stands for Hypertext Pre-processor (back when the Internet was younger and a heck of a lot more basic, that acronym was Personal Home Pages). PHP is an especially popular server side scripting language, which basically means it's used to request content from a website’s server or database in order to make that content visible and accessible for a user. Generally speaking, it's brought to bear when somebody wants to develop either Static or Dynamic websites. It can also be used to knock out the odd Web Application, and scripts written in PHP can only be interpreted on a server that has PHP installed on it. PHP programmers develop on common e-commerce platforms such as Wordpress, Joomla, Magento, Zencart and Drupal.

Hire a PHP Developer

If you have a WordPress site that you want developed to a new standard of excellence, PHP’s functionality will plays a particularly large role in that overhaul process. Sure, it's possible to cobble together and maintain a decent enough WordPress site without being a PHP savant, but PHP is the gateway to impressive plug-ins and custom themes. Basically, the bog-standard templating options available for your average Wordpress can be identified by somebody who has done even a small amount of Internet surfing – you'll need an advanced PHP professional if you want to go above and beyond to deliver a unique browsing experience that will land you a better class (and a higher volume) of customers. On Freelancer.com you can hire php developers to build a website, online store, software, maintain existing code, migrate to a new platform...and more!
