php|architect:
5 meta-skills for the PHP developer
Feb 23, 2010 @ 14:13:38

In a recent post to the php|architect site Marco Tabini has a suggestion of five meta-skills he thinks every PHP developer should learn.

But being a PHP developer is much more than writing PHP code. In fact, good PHP skills would be something that I would take for granted that every PHP developer should have—and, if enough employers are as crazy as I am, there’s a chance that I’m not the only one who wants to look beyond mere PHP to decide who is good and who is exceptional.

His list five of meta-skills for the PHP developer covers a wide range of things, not just involving the technology of web development:

  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Understanding business
  • Coming to grips with reality
  • Using the phone
  • Being humble
