Akash Mehta has posted a list of suggestions he has for developers wanting to move up and enhance their skills in the language:
So, youâ€™re an up-and-coming PHP developer, youâ€™re spending a lot of time learning new tricks and youâ€™re always on the bleeding edge when it comes to using technologies in your web applications. Whatâ€™s next?
His four answers to "what's next" are:
- Read books, write code.
- Attend conferences
- Take courses and qualification tests
- Watch the web
...with the final one being his most important.
