PHP is a server-side scripting language first developed in 1994, and powers over 80% of today’s websites, including Facebook and Wikipedia. Sites using PHP experience sizeable reductions in latency and CPU load. A PHP developer is responsible for writing server-side web application logic. PHP developers usually develop back-end components, connect the application with the other (often third-party) web services, and support the front-end developers by integrating their work with the application. They are also often required to develop and integrate plugins for certain popular frameworks.
Freelancers who are skilled in PHP can make a salary of $81,900 per year, or an hourly wage of $45. While the freelance PHP developer hourly rate can vary based on where they live, remote PHP developers can also command different PHP contractor rates based on their years or quality of experience.
