Job Description for PHP Software Developer / Programmer
PHP software developers/programmers are primarily responsible for driving new computer-based solutions. A PHP software developer handles the development of new solutions throughout the entire life cycle of the computer program. At the beginning, the software developer will work with executives, management and clients to determine the overarching purpose of the new technical solution to be developed. With the ultimate goal of the solution in mind, the software developer will then begin the design process of the program, using project management principles to develop an efficient product. The software developer will then work to actively develop the coding necessary to build the program itself. A PHP software developer in particular will work with the PHP computer language. After developing the code, the software developer will then troubleshoot and test the code to ensure it performs its intended function within acceptable parameters. After extensively testing the solution in the testing environment, the software developer will oversee the release of the program into a live environment and will continue to monitor the code to ensure that its performance is up to par. Finally, the developer will wrap up the project and work to ensure client satisfaction. Throughout this entire process the developer must keep appropriate documentation, keep interested parties updated and take into account any requirements that may change.Read More...
