PHP - Why and where it is used

PHP is the server-side programming language most used in the entire world. As a server-side programming language, PHP is mainly used for web development, powering over 80% of the websites nowadays.

Hiring skilled and experienced PHP developers is crucial to almost every business as they can have an enormous impact on your online business. Since the language is used for almost everything, from making amazing user interfaces work to securing usernames and passwords or CRM software, experienced PHP developers are needed by all kinds of companies, from startups to large enterprises.

The fastest way to identify a great PHP developer is by having a look at his sample code. While this may be a good and fast way to identify the quality of her code, this does not reveal if she belongs to the best developers in the market. In order to identify whether a PHP developer belongs to the top 5%, a combination of a standardised coding test, a live coding session and also personality interviews is required. Additionally, a deep-dive into the past projects will help to get a feeling for the range of experience and challenges the developer has had in the past - and how she behaved when being confronted with entirely new problem sets.
