without comments

images (17)

A website is one of the most important mediums to publicly help a company introduce a service or product. However, there are social networking sites that seem to also be a competitive marketing tool or strategy for business owners. From Facebook, Instagram to Twitter, news feeds are there to aggressively flaunt its feature on what it can really do. These social networking sites are powerful because they can instantly share and influence the people. However, a website is still a website. It is somewhat the core of your online presence. The best way to have a powerful marketing strategy online is by having both these platforms. Do not just have them separately but combine them every time. For example, place all your social networking links to your website and place a website link to your social networking site. Try having both of these helpful marketing tools and you will get great results in no time.

Getting PHP Programming Careers

without comments

start-image

PHP or hypertext processor is a script language used to design web development. Generally, PHP is identified to be a programming language and is learnt widely by programming enthusiasts. There are two ways to get a job after mastering PHP. It is either getting hired by a large company or work as a freelancer. Getting a desk job offers rewarding compensation. However, it also demands tiring and complex obligations and learning other programming languages. Nevertheless, a chance of getting a highly paid salary is fixed. The second option for PHP programmers is to work as a freelancer. The demand for work is not as high and complex compared to those that work in big companies. It can also help them connect with other freelancers in the network that can offer help when needed. However, monthly income is not guaranteed compared to an office job as freelance workloads come in contractual basis.

Careers in PHP

without comments

small__2681686220So you know PHP, and you’re not afraid to use it. Congratulations! This already puts you a step ahead so many people in the job market. Can you make a career with your PHP knowledge?

Well, at present, it’s a yes and a no. There are two paths you can elect to take: the freelancer path, or the employed-by-a-big-company path. Let’s look at both.

As a more conventional approach, knowing PHP makes you employable by big Fortune 500 companies. While the pay can indeed be good, there may be more demanded of you. Aside from the conventions and obligations that come with a desk job, you may also need to learn other programming languages.

As a freelancer, however, the workload may not be as heavy. Be aware, though, that the pay may not be very big, and most jobs will be contractual. It will be a big help to keep in touch with a network of freelancers to help you out and that you can help them in return.

PHP – Now More Multitasker-Friendly

without comments

medium_3071055422Are you an incorrigible, incurable, hopeless case of a multi-tasker? I know I am. Multitaskers seem to want to get everything done all at the same time, and thus subject themselves – and their computer, smart phone, a combination of both, or even double of any, as in the picture – to dozens of opened web pages, a long tray of pinned web pages, and so. Much. Stress. You might be multitasking too much if you end up forgetting just why you kept certain web pages open or pinned, your computer develops this habit of hanging too frequently lately, or even your CPU start getting hot enough to fry an egg. (Although really, we don’t suggest you even try proving the last option. Seriously.)

Now, if you’re working on a network and unleashing your propensity to multitask on a network computer, you may notice that this one can specially withstand the stress you put it through. You can thank the combined effort of PHP and FastCGI for that. It keeps your server from crashing when you have lots of web pages up.

PHP and Math

without comments

PHP at heart is a great language used to make high speed and massive number-crunching a cinch. This is how cashier machines rack up values for your groceries, and how your school administration computer system quickly racks up students’ scores and averages for the year. Sometimes, this is also how some sports writers make predictions on which athlete or team will come out on top by feeding the players’ stats into the system. This is also how your accountants sometimes get the lowdown on your taxes for the year. On a larger scale, this is also how some apps allow you to blog, upload and more.

Basic math operations like adding subtracting, multiplying and dividing just need a few lines of code to get computations running. All you need do is assign numerical values to the variables in the text string, and off you go! It can also get the average of a set of numbers, and make geometric computations.

without comments

In the last post, we talked about how PHP-powered WordPress is becoming the go-to brand for serious bloggers everywhere. Today’ we’ll focus on how PHP is also helpful blogging via a smartphone.

Let’s say you want to update your blog, but don’t exactly have access to a working computer right now. Your PC might be small__2961732791busted, or a family member may have borrowed your laptop, or whatever. The good thing in all this is you have your smartphone with you, and it has all the pictures you wanted to upload in the first place. Brilliant! You start logging onto your blogging platform of choice, and get cracking on that post.

Your blogging app is powered by PHP, too. This special programming language makes programs more lightweight, taking up less memory space in your phone compared with other programs created with a different language. It also lets the programmer pack more things into the app, such as smileys, effects, and more to give you a much more enjoyable blogging experience.

WordPress and PHP

without comments

In a previous post, it was discussed how Blogger uses PHP to help the blogger create great blog posts to syndicate throughout the Internet.
Blogger is a great platform to start your own blog. Thanks to its creators, programmers, and PHP, it provides the blogger with evertything one could possibly need to jump-start his or her own blog. It adds categories to posts, and these act as tags to make them pop up on a Google search easier and quicker. Embedding all sorts of encoded media is a breeze on Blogger. It also lets you customize the look of your blog, and allows you to create more pages to give it a real website feel.

However, migrating to WordPress with a domain of your own is something akin to “levelling up” for a blogger. WordPress provides you with all the tools you need, and more. You can now upload as many photos as you want on your own website without having to host them from somewhere else. You now also can use e-mail with your website name as your email domain. Lastly, all the PHP goodness you had on blogger can also be found on WordPress.

PHP code destination

without comments

code
You may be wondering in which files PHP code stays.

Well, PHP code may lodge in certain files, particularly those with the common extension .php, and are then furnished in same form to the browser in a URL. The server then reads the PHP code and brings a series of facts to the browser which in turn converts it as a web page.

There are unique instances though when PHP code can also be contained in a stationary HTML (XML, XHTML) location, found in a CMS. What usually takes place is that PHP offers the dynamic phase in these pages through the text part, and not actually a solo .php file for the whole page.

PHP goes mainstream

without comments

php_r.jpg

Very pop, eh? Granted that one of the leading software giants, Microsoft is anti-open source in principle and endorses .NET Framework, PHP is actually kicking language programming ass!

According to the Tiobe Community Programming Index, PHP has steadily moved from fifth to fourth in terms of skills availability over the past year. It has (sneakily?) surpassed C++ and it will soon overtake Visual Basic. Wow!

Anyway, the recently IBM-partnered Zend Technologies is putting up enterprise-strength PHP on its iSeries platform. It has even cajoled Microsoft to grudgingly accept PHP as a foe. Theyre positive that in the near future, PP will catch up on Apache, as it is on IIS and Windows.
