Most asked questions about PHP
PHP is a scripting language used to create web applications that power platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. It's one of our main programming languages.
It has been on the market for over two decades, meaning it has been battle tested in every way possible and a community full of helpers.
PHP is easy to learn and use, which translates into faster and more effective development cycles.
It integrates easily with most database management systems such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and many others. Also every hosting company offers php by default.
Frameworks like Laravel and Symfony, accelerate development and match the tech specs of frontend frameworks.
In our client's projects, we use PHP on both the frontend and backend, with a greater emphasis on the backend. We strongly believe in API patterns, separating the frontend and backend.
Frameworks such as Laravel and Symfony form the basis of our PHP tech stack. PHP enables quick prototyping and feature implementation. By using frameworks like Laravel and Symfony, we can build applications that are easy to scale and maintain. Plus is easy to find talent for these technologies.
PHP offers numerous possibilities when creating applications, but it's the utilization of frameworks that standardizes processes and enhances security.

PHP is particularly effective in creating dynamic web pages and web applications, making it an excellent choice for projects related to e-commerce, content management systems, and personalized web applications.
However, PHP may not be the best choice for high-load applications that require great performance, such as real-time games, mobile applications, or IoT solutions. In such cases, technologies such as Node.js or Python may be more suitable.
PHP also allows for quick API setup and is a common backbone for frontend applications in Vue or React.

Upgrading is always the right answer.
New versions come with changes that allow developers to use new tools, often improving performance and security. Before we start using a new version of the language, we check if there are any breaking changes, and if so, we find out what needs to be done to resolve them.
PHP is constantly evolving, and with each version, it becomes a more mature language which includes better memory management, greater performance, and new features.
The latest version PHP which is number 8, introduce many improvements and new features, such as attributes, union types, pattern matching, and many others, which allow for more efficient and secure code creation.
