Dear Sir
I have completed my engineering in computer science and i have major inclination towards web development as a PHP Developer. I want to know about scopes in php and other web development area. Also should i learn some courses further to draw good salary in php development. Or i should go for Big Data course? Posted in: #Coffee Room

PHP is used by, if I'm not mistaken, over 80% of the websites on the Internet and the list includes majority the big websites. The only key is that you need to be an expert in PHP to get good jobs. I've been let down by so many PHP developers that I ultimately decided learning PHP on my own.

Big Data is an entirely different domain and can be learned in parallel with PHP. Have you applied for any PHP jobs yet? What were the problems you faced?

Good Morning Sir
Actually I am searching for jobs as a PHP developer, but unfortunately I am not getting any job and few companies are offering very low salary. So, I am deciding now to relocate pune for software testing course. Am I doing right?

Your first priority should be to get a job and not worry about salary. You need to build experience and matching skills-set in order to be able to get a better job. Many people start very small and then grow phenomenally in their careers. You need to decide whether you want a career as a software developer or as a QA engineer and then make decision accordingly.

I agree.

It is very easy to be disheartened by low salaries. I guess a salary is often taken a measure of self worth - not true in all cases.

My first job as an engineer paid me less than my cook. 😁
