Wanna Work in Nigeria Tech Space? Learn PHP (Vanilla, CodeIgniter, YII2, Laravel).

Try to Imagine and search for those keywords beginners come up with while starting their DEV Journey, and you will be amazed and confused at how recently PHP has been badmouthed for Insecurity, Spaghetti Codes, Pain in the Ass etc, and being see as fastly loosing ground in TECH SPACE, So many blogs and articles are talking about new languages and Framework being used by industries nowadays for their backend services, the likes of Javascript(NodeJs,Express, Polymer), Erlang(Cowboy). Well Most of these languages  and frameworks have their strengths and weaknesses, as an intermediate web developer myself I started with Node and Express, and I can tell you I have no regrets whatsoever, but recently moved to using PHP (Vanilla, Nimble and Laravel) for some reasons shared below which I think should also motivate you to pick PHP UP as your primary language if you want towork in Nigeria tech industries.


1.    Most Companies in Nigeria uses PHP (Damiris, Invoice.ng, Pass.ng,        Anakle,Hotels.ng, Timbu) and so much.

    Believe me most tech companies in Nigeria runs and build products using PHP.

2. Most Solutions in Nigeria are built with PHP.

    Yes! Most web solutions here in Nigeria are powered by PHP.  Think of 

    VoguePay, Pass.ng, Fastcash, Invoice.ng, Hotels.ng and many more.

3. Most School Portals in Nigeria runs on PHP.

    This is where I believe PHP is mostly used, every school portal I have ever come across     uses either PHP, PHP Framework or PHP powered CMS e.g Lautech(Joomla), U.I     (Drupal), FUTA(CodeIgniter) etc.

4. Most Job listings in Nigeria requires PHP as skills compare to others

    You can do the search yourself.

5. Most companies are looking for developers to maintain their legacy system.

    Don't think Nigeria companies are like those whites who mostly keep up to date with     the latest tech tools out there. Our motto here is "So as long as it is working; Keep it".

6. Hosting Companies in Nigeria support PHP first, then others.

    I can give you a long list of Nigeria hosting companies that support PHP and ASP.NET,     but you hardly find few with support for Python, Ruby, NodeJs, Erlang, Go etc. For those     you have to go Foreign: Heroku, PythonAnywhere, Azure, DigitalOcean and the     GrandPa of them all AWS etc.

7. You can find the cheapest Hosting ever.

    Take a look at Point No:6. Products with more than Suppliers comes cheap.

8. The PHP Community in Nigeria is like Omi-Okun.

    Pardon me for the omi-okun (Ocean). But the community is Just too big

9. Laravel will make your life peaceful

    Yep! If you are a lover of Simple, Beautiful and Elegant code, then Go for laravel,     except for those '$' , '->' and ' :: ' you wont even know you are writing PHP.

10. PHP will Put Food on your table Faster than any other languages

    This may sound funny but a countless amount of people worldwide live with PHP.

    A quora user writes: "They tell me PHP is Bad and is going extinct, but each day I smile     to bank, its because of PHP".

11. Africoders, Larisoft Runs on PHP

    Even the great DHTML, and LARISOFT  put somethings into consideration before     Picking PHP.


SideNote: For now learn NodeJS (Express, Hapi, AdonisJs) only if you are looking to work remotely or Freelance.

Pardon Me for all typos praying.

If there's a way, bring ALL the Forums options to the front page.... I didn't know those forum options existed after spending 7 days reading comments here.... They should be seen by people...

Database and Logical Issues

Hello guys! I have been learning PHP for a while now and things are starting to get messy as I progress day by day. I am currently facing what I may term 'creativity block'. 

I am working on a project, a website/forum that allows people to register and post on various topics. I don't know how to echo posts individually from the database. I also don't know how to make a topic's title the link to the page that shows the topic's post.

Please, guys, I am not asking for the code to solve these problems. Let me learn the code myself, all I am asking for is the logic/how to do from your experience(s) as programmers.

I have attached shots of the webpage for your perusal.

Thanks and long live A/C!!!

PHP refuse to die despite all expectations from those who assumed years back.

As a developer who his scope is not limited to this nation alone, will you advice him to drop the language (php) or continue with it. If your advice is to learn a new language, what will it be ?

Php is a language that's much limited to web application only, and the technology is gradually fading off, my aim is to pick up JavaScript and learn it fully because web developers now write the entire frontend and back end with JavaScript, JavaScript can also do mobile app and in some case used for desktop application (electron.js).

A confused developer needs your advice

SSL to prevent js-file injection bug

  1. Request URL:
    http://10.71.184.6:8080/get?time=1552986691895&tlbsip=http://10.71.184.6:8080/&website=shop.kiaforum.com&charset=utf-8

The URL above shows that etisalat or 9mobile is tracking your page visit. Also, there is an error in the js file they injected into every page. The error conflict with Wordpress Dashboard. 

A Quick fix for Developer is to ensure your website(s) is on HTTPS to bypass the js-file injection.

By the way SSL Cert is free, why not get yours

And who says, "Backend guys job is easier than frontend guys"?
Does the person say it out of unconsciousness?
Does he realize for every endpoint there is at least 3 calls to them with varying inputs?

Does he know that those inputs have to be validated before being saved into the database?

How could he think that authorization is the same as authentication?

User roles are different and actions are to be checked against them, does he have an idea of how much logic goes into that?

Does he know how much thought is put into the data to return and how they should be consistent across endpoints?


I did React/Vue the whole of the past year, I know the pains of frontend guys as well.


Just don't come to mention that YOU the frontend guys experience more difficulty than the backend guys.

Only understand, as much as a UI design could be wacky, if you don't know how to you can not produce one-tenth of the quality.

Everyone's job is unique and takes so much effort from each of us to get them done.

Don't judge from the outside, dip in your two feet, then come to tell us about your experience.


Frontend o, 

Backend o,

Android o,

UI/UX o,

Machine Learning o


All na BABA for their lane.

Kudos to the guys that strive to be better while respecting other peoples job. Keep up the good work, your voice will soon echo around the globe, just a factor of time.
