PHP is a widely-used open source as well as general-purpose scripting language. It’s especially suited for website development and could be embedded into HTML.

With the growing number of websites vying to be on top, it’s critical to have one that’s aesthetic enough to sustain for long periods. PHP development companies believe in empowering organizations with tech innovation as well as digital transformation. Since its inception, it’s been deemed by a lot of industry verticals to build complex web apps, database driven and dynamic websites.

A PHP development software operates on majority of operating systems, which consist of UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and others. Furthermore, it supports most web servers. There are a lot of PHP extension libraries, which perform typical functionalities, as well as communities that support PHP libraries, consisting of a PHP Extension and App Repository that provides, keeps and distributes a structure library of typical function as well as other code, and the PHP Extension Community Library that provides C extension, which expand the core performance of PHP.

PHP development saves a considerable amount of money for a company by bringing down the overall cost of development. But, regardless of its low cost, the quality of development is not at all compromised. Offering maximum return on investment and minimizing overall cost of development, while transforming the whole workflow system is what the development aims for.


With tech startups, the hassle around the choice of technology appears to outshine the chicken-and-egg issue. On the tech side, PHP for startups was given up for lost for some time. However, while Django and Ruby on Rails advocates have been clashing swords to establish tech leadership, the PHP tech has substantially evolved recently. At the end of the day, the platform demonstrates incredible fitness for use in technology startups.

At the end of the day, this platform demonstrates incredible fitness for use in technology startups.


PHP is one of the fastest languages for coding, deploying and execution. Originally, this language was designed for finding the shortest path and easiest solution. Furthermore, community contributors have steadily been moving the tech towards modular design in recent years.

1. Cost effectiveness. From a hiring viewpoint, project stuffing or looking for replacements for current team members is not that huge a headache. Developers of PHP are considerably cheaper because of comparably low entry-level salaries. The PHP resource pool is huge, and not susceptible to fashion trends. Given the tech-based stereotypes today, if a person persists to pursue a PHP career, chasing trends definitely is not his or her style. The dynamic open source environments are free for download, while offering easy-to-use workflow and automation focus. Some other powerful frameworks and tools are distributed for free.

2. Quality. The new generation contributors’ community has been struggling to eat not-so-uncommon opinion on bad practices or insecure code, which entry-level developers used for indulging in continuously. Nowadays, by and large, this perception is an outworn kind of thing. PHP development practices to regained their positions in the last few years, with several educational materials, to provide one-stop access and to resolve common tasks.


The latest PHP language version could execute various tasks within a single script, and this is the way that smart gadgets communicate. While the Java of Oracle could be a more suitable tech for bringing internet of things parts together, IBM already has launched a software development platform, which enables third-party developers to create PHP software for the IoT. Moreover, the language has a robust appeal for IoT e-commerce organizations. While PHP may not be the future of the internet of everything, it however looks like the technology would survive in the new era.


PHP is everywhere, powering 82.2 percent of all websites around. Currently, it’s the seventh most popular language. While there are four PHP versions in use, more organizations are expected to upgrade to PHP 7 in the future. With PHP, every possible use scenario already has been documented, and there is a plethora of technology tools for handling any development issue that a developer could face.


PHP is 100 percent open source. What makes it appealing however for startups is the big and very active developer community. For those that could not afford to hire a skilled vendor in-house or locally, there are skilled, reliable offshore companies that cater to various requirements.

A robust PHP team with well-established processes, conventions and guidelines could accomplish many great things. The PHP development environment is vast, with organizations seeking development services for their processes using the programming language. PHP is easy to understand by users, without requiring any formal training before using the language for the purpose required. Web apps that are PHP-programmed are highly secure and easy to scale, compared to apps built in other language.

In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd (iCD), Australia, developer of the iCD Design Integrity software, has released the new iCD Materials Planner software to add to the Stackup Planner functionality. This will be rolled out to iCD support customers as an update to their current software.

The Dielectric Materials Library, which complements the iCD Stackup Planner, has

  • Over  33,000 rigid and flexible materials up to 100GHz
  • Produced by over 60 different manufacturers
  • Containing over 700 series of materials

So, it is often a daunting task to ascertain which is the best material for an application. The iCD Materials Planner allows you to compare dielectric materials based on manufacturer, fabricator, frequency, dissipation factor (loss) and dielectric constant. This enables the designer to make an informed decision on which material is best for his application.

Generally the selection metric, for dielectric materials, is the amount of loss that a transmission line can tolerate and this is proportional to the frequency and rise time of the signals. The iCD Materials Planner is subdivided into five default TABs which gives the novice high-speed PCB designer a heads-up as to what to select for his application.

  • Ultra Low Loss (Df ≤ 0.005)
  • Low Loss (0.005 < Df < 0.010)
  • Mid Loss (0.010 < Df < 0.015)
  • Standard Loss (0.015 < Df < 0.02)
  • Basic FR-4 (Df ≥ 0.02)

This is similar to a typical competitive analysis that a material manufacturer may present for say Isola vs Ventec & Rogers – but is far more comprehensive with over 60 vendors and 700 series of materials to choose from. Alternatively, a profile for each PCB fabricator that you usually deal with can be set up. This will display the complete range of materials that each Fab shop stocks ranging from basic FR-4 to low loss materials. This also enables the comparison of competitive Fab shop capabilities.

About In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd

In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd, based in Australia, developer of the iCD Design Integrity software incorporating the iCD Stackup, PDN and CPW Planner software, is a PCB Design Service Bureau and specialist in board level simulation.

OnePlus has unveiled an official schedule for software updates and there’s a pleasant surprise – the OnePlus 3 and 3T are not getting left behind. The schedule is two-fold – regular updates and security maintenance.

For two years after their launch OnePlus phones will get new Android versions, new features and bi-monthly security patches. After that there’s an extra year of bi-montly security patches (as in every two months). This schedule applies to OnePlus 3 and all phones launched after it.

Speaking of, the OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive their final Open Beta later this week and with that the program will close. Beta testers will be migrated to a stable version at the beginning of July. That’s not the end, however.

The 3 and 3T will continue getting regular OTA updates until November 2018. That’s two years after the 3T launched, so the 3 is getting a few months extra. Anyway, after that these two phones will go into security maintenance for a year.

This is a great move from OnePlus – not just the length of the support (only Google promises more), but that there’s an official schedule at all. This takes away the guesswork for anyone who wants to keep their phone for more than a year (and let’s face it, some phones get abandoned even sooner).

Visualization is an essential element of any Big Data and analytics strategy. The most up-to-date, real time information and advanced analytics solutions are an expensive waste of money if you can’t communicate the results clearly and effectively to the people whose job it is to put them to work.

Data visualization tools are constantly evolving to the point where they are no longer the sole domain of the formally trained BI analyst or data scientist. Increasingly businesses are understanding the value of putting analytics at the fingertips of all segments of the workforce and today’s tools are a reflection of this.

Here’s an overview of my top 7 paid-for visualization solutions, and for those on a tight budget look for my round-up of free tools coming soon.

Microsoft Power BI

PowerBI is an all-in-one BI and analytics platform provided as-a-service or as a desktop client but it is particularly highly rated for its visualization capabilities. Visualizations are created directly from reports and can be shared with users throughout your organization. As well as a large number of inbuilt visualization styles, new ones are constantly being created by the AppSource community or if you want to get your hands dirty with coding, they can be created from scratch using the Developer Tools and shared with other users. It also includes a natural language interface allowing visualizations of varying complexity to be built from simple search terms. It is consistently rated as one of the easiest to use tools for visual data exploration.


Tableau is often considered the gold-standard of data visualization tools and as such it enjoys wide deployment with a reported 57,000 active user accounts. Much of its appeal stems from its flexibility and while it may not be as beginner-friendly as some packages, a vast support network exists in the form of its global community of users, spread across many industries.

In particular its power means it is well suited to Big Data operations involving fast, constantly changing datasets, and as such it is designed to easily plug in to a large range of industry-standard databases such as MySQL, Amazon AWS, Hadoop, SAP and Teradata. Three basic distributions are available – Desktop, Server and cloud-based Online. New additions to the service this year include the Hyper in-memory capabilities designed to greatly speed up analysis of large data sets.

Microsoft has announced the general availability of Azure Database for MySQL and Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Both these open source database engines are now available in their community version as a managed service, with 99.99% SLA, elastic scaling for performance, and “industry-leading” security and compliance via Azure.

More and more open source applications are leveraging Azure, and Microsoft is embracing them with support on their Azure platform. Sunil Kamath, from the Azure database engineering team, said in a Microsoft Mechanics episode about the GA of Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL:

Bringing the open source community database engines of PostgreSQL and MySQL to Azure allows us to now continue to support your application needs, but now as a secure and a fully managed service in the cloud.

With the support for MySQL and PostgreSQL, Microsoft expands their Azure platform for relational databases. Both the Azure Database for MySQL and the Azure Database for PostgreSQL use the same foundation as for the SQL Azure Database, which has been available for many years on the Azure platform.

Previews of MySQL and PostgreSQL were launched in May 2017 on Azure. Since then, Microsoft has made progress with scalability, flexibility in backup storage options, security, and compliancewith industry standards like ISO, SOC, and HIPAA. Furthermore, the service will be compliant with the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May of this year. It should be noted that even though the underlying cloud infrastructure is compliant with various regulations and legislation, it is still the responsibility of the engineers to ensure that the applications they build are compliant — this is commonly referred to as the shared responsibility model.

A typical Azure for MySQL or PostgreSQL database can be set up from the Azure Portal by searching for either one of them. A user specifies the details for the database, hits create, and once the database is initialised a user can then configure the IP addresses of the clients who need to communicate with the database. Furthermore, the database can easily be accessed by other Azure services without setting any IP addresses explicitly.

Besides having a single instance of either MySQL or PostgreSQL in Azure, users can set up a Web App including these databases. Moreover, the deployments of these databases or Web App plus databases can be automated with ARM templates. Both Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL can be managed directly via Cloud Shell, the Azure CLI or the Azure Portal. With Cloud Shell, the MySQL and PostgreSQL client tools are already integrated to provide smooth interaction with the databases. Finally, the built-in backups in the service have retention of up to 35 days for point-in-time restore, and can also be geographically stored in other regions to recover from disasters.

Customers running either MySQL or PostgreSQL on-premise can migrate them to Azure Database for MySQL or PostgreSQL. They can use tools like mysqldump or pg_dumps to restore their instances into the Azure variant or use the Azure Database Migration Service (DMS), which performs migrations with minimum application downtime. This service allows the source database to remain fully operational during the migration. Note, however, this service is still in a preview for migrations from MySQL to Azure Database for MySQL and for PostgreSQL migrations the support will follow soon.

By supporting MySQL and PostgreSQL, Microsoft is now competing alongside other cloud providers offering fully managed, MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database engines. For example, AWS offers Amazon RDS and Aurora, and GCP offer Google Cloud SQL.

Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL are globally available in 22 regions, with more to come. Microsoft is pushing to have both available in 40+ Azure regions. For pricing details see the Azure Database for MySQL pricing or the Azure Database for PostgreSQL pricing. Furthermore, features of both services are available in the Azure Database for MySQL documentation and the Azure Database for PostgreSQL documentation.

Whether you are designing a website or application from the ground up or simply need to encode a new feature into your existing website or application, hiring a talented freelance PHP developer is an excellent option to consider.

Of course, in order to ensure that the project is successful – no matter how big or small it might be – it’s important that you take your time and choose the right PHP developer to hire. Below are a few qualities to look for when searching for the perfect PHP developer for your project.

The Three Tenants of a Professional PHP Developer

There are three basic qualifications that you should look for when first analyzing the prospects of a PHP developer – education, training, and experience. Professional PHP developers will almost always have an academic background in computer science before moving on to additional training specific to PHP then on to real-world experience coding websites and applications in PHP. Ideally, you’ll want to hire a PHP developer that has all three of these qualifications.

Proficiency in Other Coding Languages

If you want to be able to count on a single programmer to handle an entire web or application development project, chances are they will need to be proficient in more programming languages than just PHP. Other programming languages that are used in web development include Javascript, Semantic HTML Coding, XML, and various other coding languages. If the PHP developer you are considering does not have any other coding languages other than PHP listed on their profile, ask them about their experience with other coding languages in your communication with them. If you are able to work with someone that has an understanding of a few key programming languages outside of PHP chances are your project will go much smoother.

Great Communication and Interpersonal Skills

In many cases, being a great at writing code is not going to be enough for a PHP developer to guarantee a successful project. To compliment their coding skills, the best PHP developers rely on great communication and interpersonal skills as well.

These so-called “soft skills” help PHP developers better understand the goals and requirements of your project before they ever get started. In addition to making it easier to communicate your vision for your project, working with a PHP developer who has adept communication and interpersonal skills will also make the entire project more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and much easier to navigate from start to finish.


If you are able to find a talented and professional freelance PHP developer to work alongside you as you build or update your website or application, you’ll have a valuable member of your team that can help you create tools, features, and user interfaces that will set your business apart from the competition.

By taking your time when choosing a PHP developer and looking for someone who is experienced, has a broad programming knowledge base, and who has great communication skills, you’ll be able to increase the chances that your next PHP development project is 100% successful.

Cloud-native computing takes advantage of many modern techniques, including PaaS, multicloud, microservices, agile methodology, containers, CI/CD, and devops.


The term “cloud-native” gets thrown around a lot, especially by cloud providers. Not only that, but it even has its own foundation: the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), launched in 2015 by the Linux Foundation.

‘Cloud-native’ defined

In general usage, “cloud-native” is an approach to building and running applications that exploits the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model. “Cloud-native” is about howapplications are created and deployed, not where. It implies that the apps live in the public cloud, as opposed to an on-premises datacenter.

The CNCF defines “cloud-native” a little more narrowly, to mean using open source software stack to be containerized, where each part of the app is packaged in its own container, dynamically orchestrated so each part is actively scheduled and managed to optimize resource utilization, and microservices-oriented to increase the overall agility and maintainability of applications.

“A cloud native app is architected specifically to run in the elastic and distributed nature required by modern cloud computing platforms,” says Mike Kavis, a managing director with consulting firm Deloitte. “These apps are loosely coupled, meaning the code is not hard-wired to any of the infrastructure components, so that the app can scale up and down on demand and embrace the concepts of immutable infrastructure. Typically, these architectures are built using microservices, but that is not a mandatory requirement.”

For cloud-native applications, the big difference then is really how the application is built, delivered, and operated, says Andi Mann, chief technology advocate at Splunk, a cloud services provider. “Taking advantage of cloud services means using agile and scalable components like containers to deliver discrete and reusable features that integrate in well-described ways, even across technology boundaries like multicloud, which allows delivery teams to rapidly iterate using repeatable automation and orchestration.”

Cloud-native app development typically includes devops, agile methodology, microservices, cloud platforms, containers like Kubernetes and Docker, and continuous delivery—in short, every new and modern method of application deployment.

Because of this, you really want to have a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model. A PaaS is not required, but it makes things a lot easier. The vast majority of cloud customers start out with infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), which helps abstract their apps from the underlying hardware. But PaaS adds an extra layer to abstract the underlying OS, so you can focus entirely on the business logic of your app and not worry about making OS calls.

Differences between cloud-native and on-premises applications

Cloud-native application development requires a very different architecture than the traditional enterprise applications.


On-premises apps written to run on company servers tend to be written in traditional languages, like C/C++, C# or another Visual Studio language if deployed on a Windows Server platform, and enterprise Java. And if it’s on a mainframe, it’s likely in Cobol.

Cloud-native apps are more likely to be written in a web-centric language, which means HTML, CSS, Java, JavaScript, .Net, Go, Node.js, PHP, Python, and Ruby.


Cloud-native apps are always current and up to date. Cloud-native apps are always available.

On-premises apps need updates and usually are delivered on a subscription basis by the vendor, and require downtime while the update is installed.


Cloud-native apps take advantage of the elasticity of the cloud by using increased resources during a use spike. If your cloud-based e-commerce app experiences a spike in use, you can have it set to use extra compute resources until the spike subsides and then turn off those resources. A cloud-native app can adjust to the increased resources and scale as needed.

An on-premises app can’t scale dynamically.


A cloud-native app has no problem working in a virtualized space and sharing resources with other apps.

Many on-premises apps either don’t work well in a virtual environment or don’t work at all and require a nonvirtualized space.

Connected resources

An on-premises app is fairly rigid in its connections to the network resources, such as networks, security, permissions, and storage. Many of these resources need to be hard-coded, and they break if anything is moved or changed.

“Network and storage are completely different in the cloud. When you hear the term ‘re-platforming,’ that is typically the work to accommodate the changes in networking, storage, and even database technologies to allow the app to run in the cloud,” says Deloitte’s Kavis.

Down time

There is greater redundancy in the cloud than there is on-premises, so if a cloud provider suffers an outage, another region can pick up the slack.

On-premises apps might have failover ready, but there’s a good chance that if the server goes down, the app goes down with it.


So much of the cloud is automated, and that includes app management. “The benefits of cloud-native delivery, especially speed and agility, significantly rely on a substrate of reliable, proven, and audited known-good processes that are executed repeatedly as needed by automation and orchestration tools rather than through manual intervention,” says Splunk’s Mann. Engineers should look to automate virtually anything they do more than once to enable repeatability, self-service, agility, scalability, and audit and control.

On-premises apps have to be managed manually.

Modular design

On-premises apps tend to be monolithic in design. They offload some work to libraries, to be sure, but in the end it’s one big app with a whole lot of subroutines. Cloud-native apps are much more modular, with many functions broken down into microservices. This allows them to be shut off when not needed and for updates to be rolled out to that one module, rather than the whole app.


The loosely coupled nature of the cloud means apps are not tied to infrastructure, which means they are stateless. A cloud native app stores its state in a database or some other external entity so instances can come and go and the app can still track where in the unit of work the application is. “This is the essence of loosely coupled. Not being tied to infrastructure allows and app to run in a highly distributed manner and still maintain its state independent of the elastic nature of the underlying infrastructure,” Kavis says.

Most on-premises apps are stateful, meaning they store the state of the app on the infrastructure the code runs on. The app can be broken when adding server resources because of this.

The challenges of cloud-native computing

One of the big mistakes customers make is trying to lift and shift their old on-premises apps to the cloud, Mann says. “Attempting to take existing applications—especially monolithic legacy applications—and move them onto a cloud infrastructure will not take advantage of essential cloud-native features.”

Instead, you should look to do new things in new ways, either by putting new cloud-native applications into new cloud infrastructure or by breaking up existing monoliths to refactor them using cloud-native principles from the ground up.

You also need to dispense with your old developer methods. The waterfall model certainly won’t do, and even agile development might not be enough. So, you must adopt new cloud-native approaches like minimum viable product (MVP) development, multivariate testing, rapid iteration, and working closely across organizational boundaries in a devops model.

There are many aspects to being cloud-native, including infrastructure services, automation/orchestration, virtualization and containerization, microservices architecture, and observability. All of these mean a new way of doing things, which means breaking old habits as you learn the new ways. So do it at a measured pace.
