Why do people STILL use PHP to create websites?
 
05:59
This was pretty epic. A real drop-the-mic-er. It was this answer on Quora I saw the other day from Vakrokh. The question was: “Why is PHP still being used to create new websites? Why aren’t all new sites using more modern frameworks such as Django or Rails.” I love how these guys just throw “modern” in there. As if “modern” automatically equals “better”. Anyway, here was Vahrokh’s (https://twitter.com/dfumagalli71) answer: “PHP is not still being used. ‘Still’ is a word suitable to 2012 PHP, when it has been under an heavy rework and to end users / programmers it looked like it was being neglected and forgotten. Since 2014 we have PHP 7 (currently, PHP 7.2). PHP 7+ has a massive number of modern features that easily put it on par with Python / Ruby if not above. Interfaces, closures, traits, iterators, containers, exceptions, async programming, websockets (and much more) put PHP back in the competition. Modern PHP frameworks (Laravel being the most famous, but there are dozens) easily compete with other languages. Furthermore, PHP 7 brought in something that missed in PHP 5.x: speed and low memory consumption. PHP 7 speed is 100% faster than PHP 5.x and PHP 7.2 is 105% faster than PHP 5.x. The same web request that takes 80 MB RAM on PHP 5.x, takes about 7 MB RAM on PHP 7.2. A massive saving! PHP 7 even beats Facebook’s ‘native compiler’ in several tasks. This translates into reduced hosting and upgrade costs. We are talking about the language that could be hosted the cheapest of all, now getting cheaper. I won’t cover PHP MVC frameworks because there’s copious literature about them. Let’s say there is a flavour for everyone: from the fully featured Laravel and Symfony (that easily compete with Django and Ruby On Rails) to API / backend optimized frameworks, to ‘beginners frameworks’ and mini / micro frameworks. Last but not least, you can find and hire PHP developer everywhere and their wages are competitive. All of the above, show how and why PHP is still a widely common choice for new projects.” Boom! And, here’s the other thing. In this tornado of new stuff coming out all the time, PHP has been a kind of calm at the center of that storm. Steadily moving along. Making the necessary adaptations. And, still powering 80%+ of the web. Plenty of work to be had. (Unless you’re a blue-haired, latte-sipper who “like, OMG, has to work in NYC or L.A. for like a rad start-up. And, PHP is like… ugh… dirty. Gah!”) If all that chaos has you overwhelmed and terrified of the future, you can simply and calmly just step out of it. PHP is one great way to do that. That and learning programming principles… Beyond the languages. Like object-oriented programming. Design patterns like MVC. Security. Hell, even something simple like proper form-building. That’s the stuff to learn. The “eye” at the center of a constantly-changing industry that can give you some peace of mind, security and some confidence. Anyway, let me not blabbeth longer. Fist bump for Vahrokh. And, if you want to learn those core languages and programming principles, then check out my PHP curriculum on SkillShare.

Should I Use mysqli_real_escape_string With Prepared Statements in PHP?
 
05:11
Visit http://wp.me/p1MVYs-y9 for the full article. Do you still need to used mysqli_real_escape_string when used prepared statements in PHP? The simple answer is no. The way it used to work is that you would take form input data, put that into a variable, and inject that data into your MySQL query in order to add that data to the database. Now, a big problem with that is SQL Injection attacks where a hacker could inject SQL code into your query and perform actions on your database... which is something you definitely don't want. So, the standard solution became using mysql_real_escape_string to sanitize data before sending to the database. Of course, that's not the preferred solution anymore. Prepared statements are...

TBF Upwork haters DO get this right
 
09:44
For all their blubbering and sniveling… There IS one thing Upwork haters get right. It’s getting way more competitive. I mentioned this before, but freelancing is exploding. 36% of the U.S. population already freelances. In the next 10 years, that will jump to over 50%. Plus, tech is also on the rise. Hitting its highest workforce rate since the dotcom bubble. So, all those freelancers ain’t gonna be walking dogs. They’ll be developers and designers just like you. That’s, in part, why Upwork decided to begin “curating” its freelancers and not just letting any swinging… ahem… in the front door. So, now, you have “apply” and get accepted. All this DOES make it more work. But, I’m reminded of the Pareto principle. 80% of the revenue often goes to 20% of the freelancers. The freelancers who DO get in on Upwork, who figure out how it works and how to get steady job invites, who learn how to deliver and make clients happy… Those who put in the work. They tend to get all the reward. While everyone else fights for the scraps. So, the question becomes… how do YOU get into that 20%? Well, in this kind of hyper-competitive environment, every little advantage counts. Stacking those advantages is how you win. So, imagine for a second if you had insight on exactly how Upwork’s algorithms for matching and listing freelancers worked… and, all your competitors didn’t. If a little advantage, can give you a leg up… What will a big advantage give you? How much easier could you get work? How much more could you charge? Anyway, that’s why I always try to illustrate to Upwork freelancers how important understanding their algorithms is. It’s crucial to winning consistently there. To getting into that 20%. I happened to stumbled on the keys to those algorithms… By pure dumb luck… Back before they became a closely-guarded secret. And, it changed everything for me. I went from “crickets” on Upwork to my first 2K job in a matter of days. And, eventually, more job invites than I could handle. I’ve seen the same happen to students of mine… Who learn this. In fact, I just got this comment from one this morning: “This is Julia again. I have made changes you suggested on my upwork profile and I am glad to say I received my FIRST invitation this morning (11am eastern time). It definitely put a smile on my face, I accepted the invitation and been going back and forth in regards to the job description.” I’m still always amazed at how quickly this happens. I get these “sudden change” messages all the time. And, that’s the big thing I’m trying to hammer home. You change your behavior, you change your results. Hell, that’s with anything, but especially on Upwork. And, I’ve seen it happen time after time after time. Anyway, if you want to learn what I learned… And, what I’ve taught all this people.

How to find the GOOD jobs on Upwork
 
04:50
I get this one a lot. It’s the most common refrain from the “Upwork is a SCAAAAAAM!” folks that troll my YouTube channel. But, there’s also some well-meaning folks who just haven’t learned how to do this, yet. Anyway, there’s a simple way to weed out all the junk projects on Upwork and get to the good, high-paying jobs… with clients that are easy to work with.

5 Stages of Coding Career Development
 
12:22
Full article available here: http://wp.me/p1MVYs-EU A few years ago, I was really lost in my coding career.

As I searched for answers, I discovered what I call the 5 stages of coding career development. Suddenly, my certainty swelled. I knew exactly where I was and what I need to focus on... and I was able to quickly move to the next stage... which mean more income and more freedom.

JMS299: How to Get Clients On Retainer
 
20:27
One of the big downsides of freelancing is getting consistent, stable income. One month, you can be up to your eyeballs with work and the next... nothing. And, it can be scary as hell to bounce from month to month like that. One way to deal with that is to get hired on retainer by your clients. Now, for a lot of developers that sounds like a pipe dream. It certainly did to me. Then, I pitched my first client on the idea. And, it was a lot easier than I imagined. Over the years, now, I've had several clients hire me on retainer and there's a set process for making this pitch. So, in this episode, I'm going to step you through that process so you can start moving more of your clients into hiring you on retainer and generate more consistent and stable income.
