What do PHP developers do?
“Personal Home Page” started off as a simple tool to let Internet users publish information to the Web. Over the past decade, this programming language has morphed into “PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor,” one of the Web’s most popular and dominant software development platforms. PHP developers master the art of generating dynamic content by fetching data from MySQL databases and other online resources.
The platform foursome dubbed LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) exploded in popularity as colleges, startup companies and hobbyists rushed to make their website filled in with dynamic information and settings. In contrast to the expensive tools sold by established hardware vendors and software publishers, the low-cost LAMP solution gained traction quickly. Linux vendor Red Hat estimates that two-thirds of the Internet relies on LAMP solutions.
