What to look for in a PHP 7 test online candidate

PHP (Personal Home Page) is a script programming language that has been in use since the 1990s. It is mainly focused on server-side scripting and its uses can include, collecting form data, generating dynamic page content, or sending and receiving cookies. PHP can also be used for websites, web applications, and command-line scripting – to address the many other tasks that run in the background on a web server.

Despite a drop in user numbers in recent years and some belief that it is an aging language, PHP is still prevalent in 8 out of every 10 websites accessed on the internet and so it is important to select the right PHP 7 developer.

Qualifications of a PHP 7 developer

Firstly, academic education isn’t as important in a PHP 7 developer, as showing an understanding of computer algorithms, data structures, object-oriented programming, operating systems, quantitative reasoning and web programming. Commercial and open-source experience are the most relevant experience a candidate can have when it comes to PHP 7 developers.

It is essential that a PHP 7 developer possess knowledge of Ajax, jQuery, and MySQL. Furthermore, if they are Full-Stack developers with the ability to use JavaScript, CSS, and HTML to properly code websites, then this is an added bonus as it enables them to repair any mistakes made by a web designer.

If your PHP 7 developer can demonstrate skills in CakePHP (open-source web framework) and PHPUnit (unit testing framework) then this is also useful.

A good PHP 7 developer should also be familiar with the OOP (Object Oriented Programming) concepts which are commonly found in modern programming languages, as well as experience in creating and consuming web services. It is also helpful if your PHP 7 developer is adept when it comes to unit testing framework, handling HTTP requests, parsing JSON, XML, and the use of package installers e.g. composer, pear, pecl, optimizing code for performance etc.
