PHP development

PHP development

Many web systems are based on PHP. PHP is a relatively easy-to-use scripting language that is used for back-end development, but which has also been branched out into several versions and different frameworks with their own specialties. An advantage of PHP is that it is open source, which makes it easier for different web developers to contribute their part.

PHP in its simplicity

Developers Shore’s web developers are used to working in PHP and recommend it in many contexts, especially when the website is of a slightly smaller scale. However, there are many tools for a developer to use to advance the whole thing if needed. It is therefore fair to name PHP as a very flexible programming language that is easy to master and favors user experience and customer satisfaction in terms of the digitized piece.

The PHP scripting language is very popular in IT circles. The language is easy to combine with other databases and it provides a range of functions without creating significant complications. PHP developers can choose to work with websites only or develop the software as a whole.

PHP’s different frameworks

Over time, PHP has grown steadily . Various frameworks have also been added for the best tailored results when a website is rebuilt, extended or updated. A complementary framework is thus a helping hand to an already existing programming language.

The choice of framework is linked to various parameters such as popularity, the documentation used and a balance of other factors at play. However, it is particularly important to take into account the size of the community using the framework, as it is easier for any bugs or missing security aspects to be corrected quickly.

The 2 most common frameworks are shown below, but with a number of successors that Developers Shore’s PHP developers have extensive knowledge and expertise in.

  • Symphony
  • Laravel

Symphony  is used by many large websites and is at the forefront of testing, extended solutions, debugging and documentation. It is considered one of the larger frameworks where the majority of dynamic functions can be found.


Laravel  has many influences from Symphony as well as other frameworks and has been developed by picking the icing on the cake and putting together a buffet of benefits. For those looking for a very dynamic website, Laravel is perfect. It’s also a framework that specializes in unit testing code, a pure security measure that’s beneficial right up to the customer’s user experience.

Of course, there are more frameworks that Developers Shore’s PHP developers have great knowledge and familiarity with. Contact us and we will find the solution that best suits your website.
