In its monthly round up of programming jobs PHP programmers were consistently in demand, with pay rates higher than the average.
“PHP demand has been steady for months,” oDesk chief executive Gary Swart told vnunet.com. Overall PHP demand was twice that of any other programming language.
"Open Source technology, led by PHP and MySQL, is by far the skill set in highest demand today."
Overall the difficult financial climate doesn’t seem to be having a massive effect on the job market for programmers and developers as yet he said, but the situation was being monitored closely.
"PHP is superior to any other coding platform. It's free, flexible, and offers a massive support community," explained Nicholas Pregeant, owner of Innovative Web Solutions of New Orleans.
"Plus, the extensive Open Source library of proven PHP and MySQL scripts are customizable, portable, and scalable for almost any web application."
