What this job is about

If you’re into coding, or think you might be, becoming a Junior PHP Developer through the Treehouse PHP Development Track can help you turn your hackathons into real-life experience and skills. Armed with a solid foundation in PHP and web development, Junior PHP Developers typically also work with SQL and can create basic functions like setting up usernames or submitting funny cat memes. A Junior-level developer should be able to work on websites and create new functions, even when still learning the ins and outs of software coding. The best part? PHP developers often work as freelancers, and still bring in about $50K per year to start.
