Now let's analyze in more detail.

1. Demand for PHP
According to the survey, almost 80% of websites use PHP. That proves the relevance of PHP for developers and companies. Most popular sites, including Facebook, Vk.com, Wikipedia, Zoom.us, or Microsoft.com, are based on the PHP programming language.

2. PHP profitability
This programming language is open source, so it can be used free of charge. That is, there is no need to purchase expensive licenses or software. This language interacts well with databases such as MySQL, Apache, and PostgreSQL. Building a PHP-based website will not be very expensive.

3. PHP flexibility and usability
In a way, the portability and multi-support of PHP make the language widely available for most programming environments. Web developers have more control than other programming languages due to the design of its core. This way, developers don't have to worry about writing their code because it is registered between tags. PHP developers have the opportunity to create unique content thanks to the ability to add or mix HTML tags.

4. Ability to control the program for the developer
Drawing a parallel with other programming languages, PHP gives the web developer more control over the process. PHP is quite simple and limited to a few simple lines of code. Developers have "untied hands" because all code is written between tags; that is, there is no specific order for writing functions and programs when placed inside tags.

5. Availability and simplicity of PHP in training
This language is rightfully called the most straightforward programming language.
Learning it will be, in principle, not energy-consuming, comparing with other web languages. The PHP specification is logically structured and well-coordinated. Any command functions are easy to understand, so there are no problems during the development process. It also makes it much easier to optimize the application.

Earnings of Ukrainian PHP specialists
It's time to get acquainted with the average payment for the work of a Ukrainian PHP developer in foreign currency. According to the market research results of 2021, the average Ukrainian PHP specialist receives from $2,000 to $4,000 per month.
Thus, the amount for the year is from 24 to 48 thousand dollars. Beginners in this field of development get about $1200 per month.
