Ben Ramsey's Blog:
Acceptable Rates for PHP Programmers?
June 21, 2006 @ 05:55:55

Ben Ramsey asks a question today that PHP developers all around the world ask themselves at one time or another - "what are acceptible rates for PHP developers?"

This topic came up after an Atlanta PHP meeting a few months ago, and I've been asked the same question several times since then. So, what exactly is an acceptable rate for a PHP programmer?

To one person, I answered within the scope of the Java world (since this person has more familiarity with Java programmers). I recommended that PHP programmers receive pay comparable to Java programmers. To another person, I recommended that, as a freelancer, he not accept a job for any less than a specific rate comparable to that of Java programmers.

He talks about the differences in the job market between Java and PHP, mainly due to the low entry level requirements that PHP has. Usually, someone charging a "bargain basement" kind of price for an application is usually the one with less experience.

I want to see PHP programmers paid well for the work they do. Let's face it: anyone can call themselves a PHP programmer, but not everyone programs in PHP well. You should be paid a competitive rate for your skills as an excellent PHP programmer.
