Reddit.com:
What does it take to be hirable in the world of PHP?
September 14, 2012 @ 09:57:56

On Reddit.com there's a new discussion about what it might take to be "hirable" as a PHP developer and recommendations from the community as to things to do.

I'm a 19-year-old who has recently hit a bit of a rough spot in life, and the only real skill I have other than tending the cash register is programming. I've been programming for quite a while, although I've never taken more than small web design work in terms of paid jobs. I'm interested to know if with some touch-up and extra learning PHP is something that's realistic for a young person to be looking at for a career, or at least an interim step in life.

There's several different kinds of suggestions including:

  • They may consider relocation as a viable option
  • Learn MVC and related technologies
  • Find a local meetup and network
  • Learn about the most up to date techniques (namespacing, wriitng secure code, etc)
  • Make a publicly available code repository with samples of your work
  • Look for an open source project to contribute to
