PHP is a great language for Web Development- Shamit Khemka

“PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is a well-established server-side dynamic language platform for Web development. Among its many users have been important Web properties such as SugarCRM and the Drupal content management system. Perhaps the top promoter of PHP is Zend Technologies, which offers an application server and development tools for PHP and stresses PHP usage in enterprises. ” said by Shamit Khemka.

Andi Gutmans, Zend’s CEO and co-founder, has been a key participant in the ongoing development of PHP since the 1990s. He said in a conference, praising PHP’s role in cloud and mobile computing while defending its security capabilities and performance. He also talked about PHP’s status vis à vis other languages, even asserting that PHP has put Perl down for the count when it comes to languages.

In efforts to provide best results to clients, CEO Shamit Khemka takes regular feedback from SynapseIndia employees working in PHP department to change and update the working methodology if required.

JAVA or PHP or both – Shamit Khemka, Founder SynapseIndia

The tussle between Java and PHP has always been a talking point amongst developers. SynapseIndia Founder Shamit Khemka adds to it that both PHP and Java have their place within an IT organization. The funny thing is that stories about the demise and disruption of Java still get published.

There is an interesting discussion at Slashdot about Twitter shifting workload from Ruby on Rails over to Scala. Readers have compared technology choices at Twitter versus Facebook.

While Facebook uses PHP where Twitter uses Rails, Facebook uses a plethora of languages to make the whole system work. So Twitter really isn’t going to Scala any more than Facebook is going to Erlang. Which is the say that they use the best tool for the job, not one tool for every job.

To be fair, the Java ecosystem made the error of recommending the Java language and platform as the right tool for every job in the past. Today, Java infrastructure providers have shifted to offer a broader set of tools to help right-size the infrastructure to the project needs. This will only continue. And as it does, PHP, Groovy, Ruby, Java, and several other languages will be used together to help customers drive business results. Maybe we are biased, but Java the language and Java the platform have little to fear from PHP or other scripting language environments.

Shamit Khemka on Eclipse PHP Development Tool

SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka says that Zend has a major contributor to PHP, has helped launched the Eclipse PHP Development Tools 1.0 (PDT)project recently. Since PDT is built on the Eclipse framework, hundreds of Eclipse plug-ins can be used immediately by PHP developers. This project has been in development for two years and includes contributions from Zend, IBM and others.

While many think of Eclipse as a Java IDE (and maybe one of the best) it’s actually a framework for any type of tool or IDE and has been adopted for hundreds of different projects with contributions from companies including the likes of IBM, SAP, Wind River, Actuate, Intel, BEA, BlackDuck, CapeClear, MySQL, SAS and Tibco.

Shamit Khemka words on Open source flex framework

Zend has announced new partnerships and initiatives to further increase adoption of PHP applications in the enterprise. Key among these is an announcement with Adobe to collaborate on Rich Internet Applications using the open source Flex framework which SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka considers as a major collaboration. Adobe will add support for Flex’s Action Message Framework protocol into the Zend framework, which should make it much easier for PHP developers to build apps from a combination of Ajax, Flex and Adobe AIR.SynapseIndia employees working on Zend for various cases suggested that this merger will definitely benefit a lot of business owners.

Zend is seeing broader adoption of PHP among corporate developers, a trend that mirrors adoption of MySQL and other portions of the LAMP stack. Mr. Shamit khemka said that PHP has become the language of choice for rapid application development in the web, much like Visual Basic was in the 90’s for Windows Client/Server apps.

Shamit Khemka on growth of PHP language

SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka talks about the phenomenal growth of PHP applications has also led to a mushrooming of increased quantum of malicious activity. It thus becomes imperative that you write secure PHP code to protect your website. SynapseIndia researched cases of various PHP patterns for the same.

The three most vulnerable aspects of PHP that can become easily accessible to anyone are XSS (Cross Site Scripting), Global Variables and SQL code.

XSS

The growth of XSS has followed a steady growth in the use of AJAX. Cross Site Scripting, for instance is used when you create a Comment section in your website. If the commentator has to log in to comment, his login information gets stored in a cookie. Also, Shamit Khemka mentions that as the JavaScript code is generally run whenever a person writes the comment, there is a pretty good chance of the contents of the cookie being accessible to a remote server handled by a malicious user.

To counter this, make a habit of including filters whenever you request for random information. Use the die() function to exit from the task whenever the filters detect an unqualified input. The details that are typed are first filtered and then sent to the website’s database. Again the information is filtered before it is output.

Global Variables

The PHP feature “Register Globals” leads to a palpable lacuna in programming safety. Once this feature is activated in PHP configuration file, even a single variable that is to uninitialized, can lead to a great security flaw.

SQL Code

The SQL code is vulnerable to malicious users just like XSS feature. To write a secure SQL code added by Shamit Khemka you need to remember a couple of things. First avoid using dynamic code and second, if dynamic code in inevitable then do not have direct input into the tables.

Shamit Khemka describes usage of PHP scripts

PHP is mainly focused on server-side scripting, so you can do anything any other CGI program can do, such as collect form data, generate dynamic page content, or send and receive cookies. But PHP can do much more.

SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka says that there are three main areas where PHP scripts are used.

Server-side scripting: This is the most traditional and main target field for PHP. You need three things to make this work. The PHP parser (CGI or server module), a web server and a web browser. SynapseIndia studied various cases of various server-side scripting language and suggested that you need to run the web server, with a connected PHP installation. You can access the PHP program output with a web browser, viewing the PHP page through the server. All these can run on your home machine if you are just experimenting with PHP programming.

Command line scripting: You can make a PHP script to run it without any server or browser. You only need the PHP parser to use it this way. This type of usage is ideal for scripts regularly executed using cron (on *nix or Linux) or Task Scheduler (on Windows). SynapseIndia has received 5 star reviews for their various PHP web development projects.

Writing desktop applications: PHP is probably not the very best language to create a desktop application with a graphical user interface, but if you know PHP very well, and would like to use some advanced PHP features in your client-side applications you can also use PHP-GTK to write such programs. You also have the ability to write cross-platform applications this way. PHP-GTK is an extension to PHP, by which we can develop desktop applications.

About PHP framework and usage- Shamit Khemka

PHP frameworks streamline the the development of web applications written in PHP by providing a basic structure for which to build the web applications. IT Mentor Shamit Khemka says that PHP frameworks help to promote rapid application development (RAD), which saves you time, helps build more stable applications, and reduces the amount of repetitive coding for developers.

Why use a PHP Framework?

Developers should utilize PHP frameworks for various reasons, but the number one reason is for speeding up the development process. Reusing code across similar projects will save the developer a substantial amount of time and effort. Taking feedback from SynapseIndia employees working on various frameworks, we developed the best scenarios for web portals. A framework offers pre-built modules for performing tedious coding tasks, so the developer can spend their time on developing the actual application rather than re-building the foundation with each and every project.

When to use a PHP Framework?

This is a common question amongst experienced and beginner developers alike, and there’s really no direct answer to the question. For many beginners, a framework will offer greater simplicity as well stability, so it may be a good idea to use PHP frameworks whenever possible. It will help reduce or eliminate bad coding and speed up the build process. Check out latest openings in SynapseIndia Recruitment portal for PHP web developers.

On the other hand, many experienced PHP programmers see frameworks as tools for “weak” programmers that don’t understand how to write good, clean code. Whether this is true or not is up for debate, but the fact of the matter is that PHP frameworks are a tool that can be used to save time and tighten up one’s coding. SynapseIndia also worked on bond between earlier PHP versions with newer ones for updates and integration with the developed online portals.

Shamit Khemka talks about PHP for Mobile friendly websites

SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka talks about PHP for Mobile friendly websites. The number of people using mobile devices has been constantly increasing in the past few years; Smartphones revolution being a major factor guiding this trend.High-end functionality of mobile phones has driven users craving for more – the result being new technology innovations emerging in the field of Smartphones.SynapseIndia researched cases of various new changes in the mobile version application of PHP versions to implement better website.

“People now prefer using Internet over their mobile devices; this not only includes searching for a product/service but even completing payment transactions for buying a product” added by Shamit Khemka. It has thus generated the need for creating a mobile-friendly website for every business for which PHP is the best suited name as it creates light weighted websites.

PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language used for creating feature-enriched websites. It can also be employed to create your very own mobile-friendly website; PHP mixed with android will really uplift your business to apex.

Shamit Khemka’s tips on importance of PHP framework

PHP programming has climbed rapidly since its humble beginnings in 1995. Since then, PHP has become the most popular programming language for Web applications. Many popular websites are powered by PHP, and an overwhelming majority of scripts and Web projects are built with the popular language.
SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka says that because of PHP’s huge popularity, it has become almost impossible for Web developers not to have at least a working knowledge of PHP. This tutorial is aimed at people who are just past the beginning stages of learning PHP and are ready to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty with the language. Taking feedback from SynapseIndia employees working on PHP platform, we listed 10 excellent techniques that PHP developers should learn and use every time they program. These tips will speed up proficiency and make the code much more responsive, cleaner and more optimized for performance.

1. Use an SQL Injection Cheat Sheet

Use it to avoid SQL injection which is a nasty thing. An SQL injection is a security exploit that allows a hacker to dive into your database using a vulnerability in your code. Shamit Khemka says that this article isn’t about MySQL, many PHP programs use MySQL databases with PHP, so knowing what to avoid is handy if you want to write secure code.

2. Shortcut the else

Anything that can be done to make the code simpler and smaller is usually a good practice. One such tip is to take the middleman out of else statements

3. Favour str_replace() over ereg_replace() and preg_replace()

In terms of efficiency, str_replace() is much more efficient than regular expressions at replacing strings. In fact, according to Making the Web, str_replace() is 61% more efficient than regular expressions like ereg_replace() and preg_replace(). Also, check out latest SynapseIndia recruitment plan for various web development positions.

PHP as a web development language- Shamit Khemka

The website development world is not ruled exclusively by PHP, but PHP’s extensive use as a Web development language is undeniable. Taking excerpt from a survery, SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka says that it has been observed that PHP’s Web-wide use at approximately 55 percent first among Web development languages and platforms. Zend Framework, Symfony, CodeIgniter, CakePHP, and other PHP frameworks conquer Web development with extensive features, powerful tools, and superior ease.

The principal goal of these PHP frameworks is to accelerate the construction of Web applications. But some claim abilities beyond Web development. For example, you can use the Seagull framework to build command-line and GUI applications as well as Web applications. Although all the frameworks support the MVC design pattern, not all lock you into it. SynapseIndia developed cases for various PHP framework design and implementation processes to understand the difference in approach for each of them.

CodeIgniter’s documentation, for example, states explicitly that applications may, if need be, employ only that framework’s controller components.Zend and Symfony are feature-rich frameworks brimming with packages covering a variety of technologies. IT Mentor Shamit Khemka also adds that Zend’s Zend_SOAP and Zend_XMLRPC packages encapsulate just about everything you need to build RPC-style SOAP server and client applications.

Both Zend and Symfony, however, demand significant learning time as compared to the other frameworks reviewed here. In particular, learning Symfony requires learning YAML (Yet Another Markup Language), which Symfony employs extensively for configuration and data description.
