The Classic PHP Slip-Up You Must Avoid

It's implausible to be flawless. And when it comes to programming, the scope for mistake only gets bigger. The extent of mistakes might vary â some might be just minor errors that are easily identifiable and correctible while other make your entire code crumble â but irrespective of how much are they likely to impact your project, there is an urgency to locate them and make sure they do not occur repeatedly. Hiring services of a professional PHP development company would help you avoid those, but that's a story for another day. Pinpointing the common PHP errors is important for the long terms health of your project. Here are some errors frequently observed:


Burdening the Computer's Memory

PHP already puts a lot of load on your computer's processor. And you are not helping if you write your code in a way that adds to that burden mercilessly and kills the computer's processor and memory. Writing codes that for instance creates new classes whenever loops are being executed is not recommended at all. What they do is that they create attributes which are not needed, and as these increasing number of attributes get stored in the memory, it makes difficult for your RAM to breathe.


Not Paying Heed to What Database Caching Can Do

The decision to go for database caching once you fully write your code will surely prove to be rewarding. However, you must know which tools you ought to use for carrying out that database caching. Memcached is one tool that experts recommend.

Perplexed by the Difference Between Single Quotes and Double Quotes

Single quotes and double quotes, for more than one instances, perform functions that do not differ greatly from one another. One common observation is that when a programmer is writing a code to concatenate two strings, he or she decides to go with double codes. While it performs the function it is intended to, apart from helping you steer clear of unnecessary clutter, there is also a better reason to use single quotes instead. The foremost reason is that it reduces the number of lines in the code and makes the code more comprehensible.

# $let = 'go';

# $foo = 'hello $let';

# $bar = "hello $let";

hello $let' is produced as an output by the $foo function. The same output using double codes would have added more lines to the code.


Restricted Localization

As and when you are giving shape to a software project, the rule of thumb suggests that you save the text snippets as code. You need to do so because on the course of the project building, you might need to refer back to the code, thus having it stored at some place its easily accessible at will be convenient. This takes us to the localization of the code. Again a standard practice, but one that's undervalued. Localizing entire code involves using gettext in your application and initializing the gettext library.


Using isset() at Wrong Places

There is not a cloud of doubt over the importance of the Isset() function. It serves as an excellent tool for un-complicating the coding process, particularly for programmers who have just started with PHP. That said, that simplicity of execution comes with a price. The isset() function restricts your code's ability. The $_GET variables that often feature in codes by newbies make it absolutely essential to also use isset($_GET['id']).

An established PHP outsourcing company can address the root-level issues and leverage its pool of programmers to offer you the best quality PHP development services. Scan the market for such a partner and let it bring a sense of structure to your project.
