Jim Plush's Blog:
The Soon to Be PHP Boom
April 28, 2006 @ 13:16:19

PHP developers all over the world can rejoice now if what Jim Plush is predicting in his new post will be coming soon - a major resurgence of major companies looking for skilled PHP developers.

You can almost feel it in the air. You can almost sense that PHP hasn't even come close to hitting it's peak in the world. Jobs man, I'm talkin jobs. I remember 3 years ago getting my daily emails from monster.com on PHP positions open in my area and maybe I was lucky to see one every couple of weeks. Fast forward to today and there are no less than 5-10 per day! I mentioned this on the PHP podcast interview I did last with with Marcus and I noted how this quick explosion in PHP positions could be troublesome if trained coders aren't there.

With this rush right out on the horizion, Jim recommends a little preparation - getting your ceritification, contributing to an open source project, know your basics, make a name for yourself somewhere on google, and get out as much in the PHP-related media as you can.
