7php.com:
Building Your PHP Geek Cred To Publicly Be An Awesome PHP Developer
January 06, 2012 @ 08:50:12

On the 7php.com blog Khayrattee Wasseem has a few suggestions about how to "build your geek cred" as a PHP developer - suggestions of resources and things you can do to get more involved in the language and its community.

If you've read the PHP|Architect Magazine - March 2011 Edition, you have surely enjoyed the nice article by Jason Austin (a PHP developer from Raleigh, NC) titled "Good PHP help is hard to find". Jason talks about 'the why' and 'the how' to distinguish yourself as a qualified PHP Professional from the crowd. And the way to do that is: "You have to build your geek cred". I think he did a brilliant job with the article.

Some of Khayrattee's suggestions include (each rated with a number of "cred points"):

  • Get certified with recognised certifications like the Zend Certified Engineer program
  • Start a PHP meetup group near you
  • Sign up to attend PHP conferences around the world
  • Blog about PHP { have a blog dedicated to it }
