We’re also history buffs, here at LeftLane Media… Okay, maybe not, but we take a job seriously. A part of that is knowing everything we can about what we do.
It’s an open-source language, meaning it’s free to use, distribute, and modify. It was created in 1994 by Rasmus Lerdorf as a set of Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts to track visitors to his website. Over time, it evolved into a powerful programming language that is widely used for developing dynamic web applications and websites.
Did you catch that last part? It’s continually growing and evolving. This has made PHP particularly popular for creating web applications such as content management systems (CMS), e-commerce platforms, social networking sites, and more.
All those things can be yours, and you don’t have to be a history buff either.
We operate by four guiding principles, surrounding PHP. These principles help us deliver the best possible website to your hands. They’re what makes PHP great and what we emphasize in everything we do:
- Open-source: We’ve said this before, but we need to say it again! PHP is an open-source language, which means that it is free to use, distribute, and modify. Which also means it doesn’t cost you a dime. This makes it an accessible choice for your business to have custom web solutions unique to you.
- Large community: PHP has a large community of active developers (That’s us), who contribute to the development of the language, frameworks, and tools. The more we use it, the better it gets. The better it gets, the more we use it. This ensures that PHP remains up-to-date and relevant for modern web development needs. Safety and flexibility.
- Flexibility: PHP is a flexible language that can be used to build a wide variety of web applications, from simple static websites to complex enterprise-level applications. It cannot hold you back. It can only send your business farther faster.
- Performance: PHP is optimized for web development, and its performance is generally fast and efficient, making it a suitable choice for high-traffic websites and applications.
Sounds too good to be true? It’s not.
Well, the first and easiest answer: So you don’t have to learn it. The second and tougher one: How worth it is your business to you?
Even if you already have a website, unless you hire a professional or learn the language yourself, your website might fall into a state of stagnation. It could very well be left behind by customers and search engines as something old and not-so-easy to use. Not to mention if you’re trying to build a website from scratch.
It’s important to hire a professional for PHP development because creating custom web solutions requires technical expertise, knowledge of best practices, and experience with the language and related frameworks and tools. At LeftLane media, we can create efficient, optimized, and secure web applications that meet your needs and your needs alone. Even after your website is finished, we provide ongoing support and maintenance to ensure the applications remain functional and up to date.
We’re ready to save you time and money. Who knows, we might even make you some money too.
