PHP Jobs

PHP is a recursive acronym, standing for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. Initially created in 1994 by Rasmus Lerdorf it has grown to become one of the most widely used open source general-purpose scripting languages in use today. PHP5 was released in July 2004 and its use has grown rapidly due to it being especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

The increased demand for web applications and web sites over the last decade has grown massively. The shift from traditional desktop computers to mobiles and tablets, coupled with the increased data transfer rates of the internet as whole this can only be set to grow.
