  • Why Use PHP For Web Graphics

    Personal Home Page, PHP Hypertext Preprocessor or PHP is the most powerful and dynamic programming language used in web development as well as other general purposes. It is a server side scripting language and hence it can achieve multifarious objectives of a website that cannot be accomplished using scripting language like HTML. Its power to connect to the MySQL database makes this the most useful and cogent scripting language. Websites can be used dynamically by maintaining forms, records, automating web contents among others. It is fast as does not need massive coding as that of HTML. PHP web development

    Web pages can be made responsive using PHP. Graphics are one of the most compelling aspects of PHP. Equipped with a powerful GD graphics library it can dynamically manipulate images. It can create GIFs, JPEGs, PNG, and WBMPs.

    Use of GD graphics library provides PHP programming with another major advantage. Graphs, Charts, Bar diagrams, line diagrams can be easily created with dynamic properties using this. Creating graphical data charts is easy using this language.

    PHP GraphicsPHP enables creation of image objects like circle, rectangle, oval among others that can be manipulated to draw complex designs and patterns. It supports grouping of large, complex objects and render dynamic properties to image objects.

    The graphics library allows manipulation of Z-index. It is the ability to place objects above or behind other objects. In web development this aspect is a crucial one to add dynamic visual properties. It is creation of multiple layers in a website where objects can be placed.PHP web graphics

    Image scaling is an important aspect that is required in websites. As internet users browse from devices like iPad, Cell phones that has a smaller screen size, website display is expected to be responsive. That is, websites should fit to any browser size without losing any of its property distortion of content. This can be achieved easily using PHP script. It can specify coordinates to the plane of image and scale them automatically to any browser.

  • The Ethics For PHP Development Company

    It comes in light from the many years that PHP development companies or we can say software companies do not have a code of ethics to follow. But this is not the case seems to be as in the first look. After we get into detailed analysis then an understanding builds up towards the software and development ethics. Morality is related to both software and information.

    Today questions arise that does the software companies ever think how these software development is affecting society whether it is affecting in a positive way or the other way round ? And what impact our actions made on the world around us.

    Morality never relies on the laws it completely on individual morals. There is “World Intellectual Property Organization” that keeps an eye on every ethical and non-ethical movement by PHP development company.

    There are a few assumptions in the software industry about ethics;

    • A framework is required for ethics in PHP development.
    • The information is not a physical object and rules are different as in the case of physical objects.
    • Software is a form of expression that will include entertainment and commentary effect on society and politics of a different nation.

    For your understanding I would like to share my experience that happened recently, A client required a similar application that is already in the app store but don’t want direct copying from existing application because it will be not ethical to do so and also against the copying law in the software industry. Somewhere it is up to you in which direction you want to go. Rules must be followed at work this will guide us in the right path.

    Morality and belief affect three important fields of software industry i.e. information, expression and copying. The first step for refining the process starts from copyright law. Our present copyright law doesn’t create to protect original developer they are bent into protection for promoting the scientific progress and useful art.

    There are much of ethics of other industry like engineering and medical are based on assigning blame when things get changed in wrong manner. But in case of software development it is not the case, it became more challenging because significant technical challenges for blaming others. If an error in made by the applicant then it is to become more different in the absence of source code to identify whether the error was really from application, operating system or database in use by the application. Because of this there are most lenient laws applied in this industry.

    Let’s take an example of the car manufacturer, car owner drive the car and is responsible for whatever is happening on the road because he/she is the sole decision maker and car don’t have any decision making power. So after delivering cars from car manufacturer they do not come under law for these kinds of miss happenings but here scenario is changed in PHP companies’ programmers did not come under these guideline not because they are not liable for their products but also they can bluntly lie about the liability. These practices are being followed frequently by companies.

    Now let’s talk about talk about the underlined points of law that decides what is right and wrong as per law. A good program makes the users responsible for the mistake, by allowing the customer about what he/she is putting the program to do. On the other hand if the customer ignored the notification and did something program not cable of then blame comes after the user not the developer.

    Certain instructions and rules must need to follow on both end programmer and user as well; some rules are explained in the line below for your reference.

    For programmers: Program must be written as per client need only focus should be only on the requirements nothing else. Never try to fool users by applying any trick on that because many of them are honest people. Those who are dishonest will automatically track down your trick in the program. If you are using other developers work then you must credit them for their work. If possible then let them access to your source code and are open to your program stability. It will reflect the quality of work to other people as well.

    For Users: Reject/deny using those applications that didn’t perform the function you request for. Before applying your instruction to the program must read the documentation of it that will let you know what it want to say and what it really meant. Request for the source code of your application and get it checked that any misguidance is not going on to mislead you. Beware if your program is not providing the source code that means they are hiding something from you.

    From this article you will get an idea about the ethics being used in this sector for betterment of users or clients. Also points to consider while making decisions for selections of programmers.
