At a Glance: PHP Developers

PHP is one of the most widely used server-side scripting languages, and is perhaps the most popular programming language in use today. PHP is one fourth of the LAMP software stack, a database, framework, and server software bundle used to engineer a site’s back-end architecture. With a number of modern frameworks designed to leverage its speed and scalability, like CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Laravel, and the Zend framework, PHP is an established programming language with staying power.

PHP development is used to build many content management systems (CMS) and e-commerce platforms such as WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Magento, and ZenCart, so if you’re using any of these platforms for your site or online store, a skilled PHP developer can help you build, migrate, and maintain it over time. An experienced PHP programmer can develop and manage your CMS, server-side applications, website, or e-commerce platform. PHP developers on Upwork have the expertise to work within your site’s many moving parts—they’re often full-stack developers, involved in database management, server technology, and operating systems.
