Advice For PHP Developer

PHP Development is quite easy and fun to work at. Here are a few tips that should help you to be a good PHP developer.

  1. Use OOP : Using classes (or Objects) will keep like things together and remove the repetition of code and perform basic tasks of production very easily.
  2. Keep your distance from anything ending with _once() :  include_once() and require_once() is extremely hard on server resources. These things will kill your server resources.
  3. Design Patterns : Design Patterns are some default structure solutions to solve problems of design, but the application design (modelling). But, why should I learn that? Just to write a better code and improve reusability. With design patterns you will find some default common problems and every time you find that problem you will find a default design to apply, so it’s easy to solve design solutions in your project.
    (recommended : “Head First Design Patterns”)
  4. Use Frameworks : If you are a PHP developer that concerns about security and productivity I recommend you to use a framework. It will improve your development speed and you will have a better designed and structured application.
  5. Use PHP’s inbuilt functions :  PHP has many built-in functions that can do what you need them to, so check out the manual to make sure you are doing it in the best way possible.
  6. PHP: The Right Way : Stay updated with what’s happening in the PHP world.
  7. Well documented and commented code.
  8. Code Code Code.

That’s pretty much all about it. Hope that helps.
