How to make good career in php ?

i am Mahendra sahu from india(Odisha). I have 1.5+ year Exp as a PHP Developer & also work in different CMS like Wordpress, Joomla, and Magento but i don't feel secure in this line in terms of job satisfaction & money, so i decided to doing some good courses to improve my career line for better future. Will you please suggest me some best courses along with PHP which will make my career better & secure .

I suggest checking out Simply Hired, Dice, Monster and other job sites to see what employers are looking for in terms of PHP skill sets. Write down these requirements, then you can begin looking for classes that will help you meet them. It's always a good idea to know what skills are needed in today's job market.

Learning a new framework and language is more time consuming then improving my existing skills in PHP. But with .NET you have a lot of possibilities (Windows 7 Phone development, Silverlight, WPF) and possibly bigger chances to find better jobs.


Since you already have some knowledge of coding with PHP, how about becoming proficient with Javascript? It will broaden your options and make you more flexible, which should help with job security. Alternately, since they would probably make for good companion knowledge vis a vis PHP, perhaps you should consider some MySQL or Apache courses. Since you mentioned job satisfaction, I would seriously consider what it is that you do find rewarding, and try to make your decisions with that in mind.
