Technology is something which started playing an important role in the world we are living . Technology makes our life simpler by developing various softwares. And for developing these softwares we need a programmer and a designer. A computer programmer, or coder, is someone who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes code for many kinds of software. One who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist , or software analyst. However, members of these professions typically possess other software
engineering skills beyond programming. Computer software designers create and test software applications used for business, scientific, industrial and entertainment purposes.
In reality software designer and developer roles are always combined. Even in larger environments where architects have separate role, the designer and developer role is joined. The designer role (when being also implicitly developer) works with existing abstractions. However when new people join the project as developers, they often indeed are developers for the short while before they grasp the design style of the project. It helps to understand that there are two different roles as it helps to understand the time it takes for new people to adapt into the team’s or project’s way of doing. Software designer role is in action when the implementation-side design is done. Software developer role is in action when the actual implementation is done. Developers write the code that actually performs the tasks. Developers are supposed to follow the agreed software design rules to keep their code aligned with the rest of the code base. And to be a designer and a good coder, proper guidance and practices are required .
DOCC Kolkata provides a homely environment and proper guidance for any individual IT or non IT to become a coder and a designer.

Learn about the education and preparation needed to become a PHP programmer. Get a quick view of the requirements as well as details about degree programs, job duties and necessary skills to find out if this is the career for you.
PHP programmers design, build, test and debug database-driven, Web-based applications in the PHP scripting language. These applications are dynamic, and users can interact with them. PHP programmers usually need a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field, and they should also know how to code in other programming languages and work with database packages. Individuals may opt for certification in a variety of programming languages.
PHP Programmer Overview
PHP is a server-side scripting language that enables users to interact with databases underlying web pages. Most PHP programmers supplement their skills with knowledge of software that PHP works with to make Web pages dynamic. This software includes HTML code, other scripting languages and some of the essential programming languages. Working mostly with database and storage applications, accomplished PHP programmers are also familiar with database packages such as MySQL and Oracle.
A PHP programmer is responsible for designing and implementing website functions by writing PHP script code and templates. The programmer combines PHP with other programming protocols to design, build and manage such application packages as report generating protocols, games or e-commerce shopping carts. The PHP programmer uses testing and debugging skills to ensure that these and other Web applications are running smoothly.
The BLS reported that job growth for software developers should be excellent from 2012-2022, with a projected job growth rate of 22%. The field of computer programming will experience more modest growth, with a projected rate of 8%. By expanding their knowledge base of newer technologies, such as cloud computing and programming languages, PHP programmers may become software engineers with careers that could advance into managerial positions. If you want to learn Web development very easily then PHP is the language you must seek to master.

For the last few years, I’ve focused largely on desktop development doing WPF and C#. I’ve dabbled a little here and there in web development, but the lion’s share of my web development up until the last few months occurred several years ago or earlier. Recently, I’ve been doing nothing but web development, in the form of webforms primarily, but also with Java and my home automation projects here at home. One weekend several weeks ago (it was “last weekend” when I started this post) I decided to upgrade my main machine at home from XP to Windows 7, and this required me to wipe everything and start fresh. Part of this meant that I’d have to port my IntelliJ/Spring/Maven/Java setup to a new machine.
I had ported my project from Eclipse to IntelliJ (which went very smoothly — compliments to IntelliJ), so it had been a long time since I’d actually set up a web development project in Java. Interestingly, it had also been a long time since I’d done the same in the ASP world since the work I’ve been doing the last several months had already been setup from a project structure perspective. However, given my situation with the home automation project and the fact that I’m starting on Feed paper, I’m in a unique position to document my comparative experiences with both, being in the position of generally experienced developer and relatively familiar with the technologies, but not practiced at setting up these specific types of projects. I’ve done this documentation below.
Before you read on, please note that I’m not in the tank for anyone or a fan boy of any technology, company or platform. I’ve spent years developing in both Java and .NET and there are things that I like about both. I’m a happy, equal opportunist polyglot and hope to stay that way. But for me to do so (with Java and .NET at least) would require both technologies to succeed, and I see trouble on the horizon for Java. I don’t like this because I like Java. It was a nice alternative for web development when Microsoft wanted to charge me $500 for Visual Studio and who knows what for whatever else I would have needed to write web applications. I like it because it was real, big boy server side code, capable of expansion to enterprise sites and not sloppy (I’m looking at you PHP). I like it because of the vibrant and inventive community of developers committed to improving it. But, I still think dragons be coming and Java might have a fight on its hands not to become COBOL.

Learn UI/UX Design from DOCC kolkata
UI is the saddle, the stirrups, and the reigns.
UX is the feeling you get being able to ride the horse, and rope your cattle.
At least that’s what they used to say in the olden days. Rather, that is what I wished they’d say. Despite how simple that may have sounded, there are many complications and misconceptions when it comes to the differences between UI and UX design, and they cause the design community to go into quite a stir whenever they are brought up.
An interesting note to that is that I’ve found the people who work at jobs with titles such as Interaction Designer to get paid more simply because they know and act on the differences between those two fields (typically harnessing a little of both). And in fact, I think there are more differences in the people behind these roles than the ideas behind UI and UX design.
Let’s jump right into a standardized definition that we will try to metaphorically elaborate on. Defined very simply a User Interface design is the part of the product that faces the user when he looks at the site, and the User Experience is how they feel when they look at the site, aka the broad scope.
More pointedly, good user experience is the art of a drill going through wood, or a surfboard gliding through water effortlessly. The feelings those give you is unparalleled because they just work, simple as that. Though, in contrast, the shape of that board that helps it make those turns on the wave is good UI, and the surfwax on the top so you don’t slip off is also good UI. In short, the ENTIRE package is what makes it good UX, whereas good UI is always a very important inner-element of that.
Just look at that image; that is such a glorious illustration of exactly how much is incorporated in User Experience design. Now you can tell why the people in these roles have to be able to think critically and creatively on an almost constant basis. Though, don’t be thrown off if you are a bit confused thus-far, because we have indeed mainly related UX and UI design to physical products like the surfboard, or animals like the horse.
The reason for that is, this is obviously a bit of a confusing topic, and it is mainly that way because it is heavily fractured. That is, little pieces of one make up the larger view of the other, and that can be sort of confusing or challenging to a lot of people. But even designers have a hard time with it, so don’t feel let down.
Let’s imagine that we convert those ideas we already spoke about into the web or mobile spaces. The UI would be a series of buttons and how they look, and the UX would say that button should physically press down when you click it. The responsiveness of being clicked, and then having the button pressed down on a 2D website is so satisfying after all, how could a designer not do it? Well, it happens all the time, and I think we get spoiled by the ones that do.
For instance, I have been to tons of sites that have nice big beautiful buttons with shadows under them like they are just itching to be clicked on, and then when you do, they don’t inset into the page. No responsive animation, and all I know is that it makes me feel disappointed in the design or designer of that product.
Now, I don’t believe that is because I am some sort of weird button elitist, but instead I think it is because that is how powerful good user experience is. I believe that when we come into contact with user experience that is so over the top, and so amazing (as the buttons that inset are, for some reason) then we literally feel like all things should be that awesome. Of course, I wouldn’t judge an entire product because some buttons don’t press down, but that is a big part of how I feel in that given moment going to press that button.
There are tons of outside factors that influence how we feel on a website at any given time, and we need to do all we can to make sure that website presents itself in such a way that we curb all those outside influences into not being as apparent as the inner-influences of our UX is. In general, always think of UX as an umbrella that houses all the points that make up your product’s experience, in the now, in the future (though that’s some strategy), and in the past.
When everyone decided that true beauty online meant a lot, it really took a lot of us by the reigns (horses again, I know), but it actually did. We all took notice, we all started to become obsessed with these products that were designed with these amazing little UI facets that sort of have become overly worn by now. jQuery has had an effect, responsive media queries in CSS have had an effect, so too has the actual design.
It has been argued time and time again, based on all this talk regarding UX and Interaction, is how someone feels on a 2D website actually important at all? Well, if you are trying to get conversions it is; if you are trying to get people to be fascinated by your product or blog it is; if you are trying to get people to understand you it is; if you are trying to get people to listen to you it is; if you are trying to get people to spread your message it is; if you are trying to get people to do pretty much anything then yes, it is very important.
I’m sure you can tell that yourselves, but the reason we often have this seemingly unnecessary debate is that designers who are in one field really don’t know how to define themselves. And for good reason. Designers often end up doing a number of different jobs within the design realm, and that is why it is actually even more important to find someone who knows exactly what they do best and how they fit into the team – unless of course you are looking for a jack of all trades.

PHP is a scripting language used predominantly for web programming. It is very popular mainly because it is open-source and you don’t have to buy a license or copy to install it on your computer, and the websites created using it are very dynamic and attractive. The PHP community is very active and solutions for any technical problem can be found online, either on websites, blogs or forums. According to a Netcraft survey, more than 100,000,000 hostnames have PHP coding and it is installed on more than 20 million websites and one million web servers. Popular websites such as WordPress use PHP as their publishing tools.
How long will it take for me to learn PHP? Do I have to take a course?
To learn PHP, it is very important to learn C and C++ since most of its run time code is made of C libraries and it is also scripted in C. PHP is very easy to learn – it is a straight-forward language and does not have many complexities. When I was doing my under graduation in Computer Applications, a basic PHP course was offered to us as part of extra credits. We all could write a simple, functional script in a matter of minutes. There are dozens of websites that provide free step-by-step guides to learn PHP so much so that you can become a master of the language just by self-study. A living example is my dad who, at age 70, is trying to learn PHP to improve the functionality of his website on temples which is his retirement hobby. He was able to succeed just by reading online tutorials. If a 70-year-old can do it, I am sure you can too!!
What do recruiters look for in PHP programmers?
PHP programmers who are skilled in languages like C, C++ and Java, and also keep abreast of the latest developments in mobile and wireless technologies, are in great demand. A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Computer Applications is a necessary criterion to join most companies as a PHP programmer. But, a Bachelor’s degree in any stream along with a certification in PHP can also work.
What can I do as a PHP programmer?
With knowledge of PHP, you can become a Smartphone application developer and make a lot of money, while having fun at work! Various web development companies require PHP programmers to develop websites for their clients. You can also freelance and work independently for clients. If you know other related web programming languages, you can sit at home and build a prosperous career.
What is the remuneration like?
According to PayScale, web developers earn an average salary of Rs. 2.5 lakhs per annum. As a fresher, you will start at about Rs. 8,000-9,000 per month, but with experience your salary can go up to Rs 6 lakhs per annum.
Where can I find jobs with my PHP skills?
You can find jobs in:
- Web development companies
- E-publishing houses
- Large corporates which have a dynamic website
- E-commerce companies
- Freelance websites like 99designs.com, elance.com, Sortfolio etc.
- Digital marketing companies
- Product companies like Google and Amazon
PHP will help strengthen your web-developing skills and make your resume more attractive to a recruiter looking to fill relevant openings. But, it is essential that you also know other web programming languages like HTML, XML, etc, along with PHP to equip yourself as an overall developer.

Graphic designers create visual communications seen every day, every minute, across the globe. Designers develop entertainment, advertising, news and features in all forms, including print publications (magazines, newspapers and brochures) and digital and broadcast media such as game machines, television, web browsers, social platforms and portable devices. As technology continually develops in complexity, so too grow the duties and skills of graphic designers. This comprehensive career guide examines the role of graphic designers, the most-common routes into the profession and related careers. It’s rounded out by a review of job growth estimates in the field and salaries, by state, for graphic design professionals.
Graphic designers convey inspiring and informative ideas in advertisements, brochures and other marketing communications materials. Some graphic designers work for specialized design firms as part of a collaborative team, while others are self-employed and work independently. Print and digital designers use complex graphics tools to manipulate text, images, animations and color.
Most graphic designers work full-time to meet deadlines. Self-employed graphic designers must be flexible, as clients sometimes need to meet during evening and weekend hours. As with so many industries, customer service and client satisfaction are keys to success. Additionally, succeeding as a graphic designer includes learning how to bid on contracts, market services and develop an ongoing client base.
Job rates for graphic designers are expected to grow by 7 percent during the 2012-2022 decade, according to the BLS. This growth rate is smaller than the national average for all jobs during the projection period, for a number of reasons. Due to the rapid development and deployment of digital media, the market for graphic designers in print media has severely slowed, making designers that can work both in digital and print more attractive. The BLS says jobs with “newspaper, periodical, book and directory publishers” will decline by 16 percent during the decade. On the flip side, jobs for graphics professionals in computer systems design and related services will find a strong 35 percent increase in job openings, especially in fields of web-based graphics production, portable devices and video entertainment. Competition for new jobs, the BLS predicts, will be stiff. In all, 17,400 new openings in the profession are anticipated over the projection decade.
Are you thinking about really getting to know the ins and outs of a web development language, trying to decide between PHP and Java? While comprehensive web programming knowledge will serve you well, many developers become specialists, and their expertise can go a long way toward securing work, particularly with development teams.
But you might be trying to figure out which language will give you the best long-term return on your learning investment. What will best support the intricate development needs of large companies? Which will help startups and small businesses get the most bang for their limited bucks? And ultimately, which will be in the greatest demand?
Both PHP and Java are pervasive and integral to the modern web. And since they can be used to accomplish some of the same tasks, possibly no two languages prompt as much debate over relative strengths and weaknesses. Both have serious credentials, supporting some of the world’s largest and most profitable sites. And this likely means that both will have a long and promising future in web development.
So how do you choose? Well, if you haven’t already, you might start with a comprehesive survey course in web development to get a good overview of how the languages work within a larger context. But as you begin to explore these languages, here are some ideas about them and their differences, drawing from the experience of developers who use them regularly.
One of the primary structural differences between PHP and Java is the difference between strongly- and weakly-typed languages. Java is a strongly-typed language, meaning it requires explicit statements of intent to function and that it is backed by a compiler. At the highest level, you can think of this as meaning it has strict expectations on how you express inputs and outputs. If these exact expectations are not met, the compiler will fail and the program will not work until errors are resolved.
PHP, in contrast, is weakly typed, essentially meaning it is more flexible and reliant on “common sense programming” in how a task is accomplished. While this may sound more attractive because it requires less formal knowledge, some contend that it complicates certain tasks, particularly in object oriented programming, with its lack of standards.
Ultimately, these characteristics imply that java can be a good choice when development is complicated and relies on teams of professional developers. Rather than making work more challenging, the precisely defined standards allow for easier understanding and greater efficiency among teams. On the other hand, PHP is more accessible to inexperienced programmers. If a web product intends to allow users to work with the code (such as web and blog creation software or small business sites) PHP can fit the bill nicely. It can also be a nice economical and nimble choice for small teams using agreed coding standards and when dealing with simple functions.
You have likely taken away, thus far, that PHP can be characterized as fast, flexible, and free. Unless, of course, it leads to jam-ups caused by a lack of coding standards, this is a fair statement. And there a few other facts about PHP that further define these traits.
First, an advantage of PHP is that, aside from being free in terms of coding standards, it is free of cost. The open-source language is available on virtually every Web-hosting platform for anyone to use. It is the programming language of the people!
Then, to further define PHP’s flexibility is the fact that it works universally, across platforms. The reason for this is that the code is processed entirely on the server side and delivered as dynamic content to the viewer. For large scale operations that need to work on every system architecture, PHP can be the way to go. It can provide an easy method to ensure people are seeing what they should, wherever they are.

Web Developers create web pages and web-based applications.
Web developers build the web pages and web-based applications that comprise the Internet. A basic web development work-flow includes collecting or creating web content (copy, images, videos, etc.), planning web site layout and navigation, coding the actual web pages, then testing and optimizing the website for superior user experience and optimum performance.
Successful web developers are fluent in the programming languages that fuel the World Wide Web. All web developers need a command of HTML, Java script & CSS. It’s also helpful to know a server-side programming language, such as PHP, Microsoft .Net Visual Basic, or Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) to develop more complex applications. Web developers can further distinguish themselves and increase their earning potential by learning and certifying in one or more of the leading database systems, such as My Sql, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2 or Oracle to write web apps that interact with databases. Learn more about web developer education requirements and compare the top-rated web development training program in the India.
Web development projects require frequent revisions and enhancements, so web developers need patience as well as strong communication skills to interact with team members and clients. Creativity and an understanding of color theory and design concepts will also increase your value as a web developer. Web development jobs exist in all settings, including enterprises and government agencies, small to medium businesses or working alone as a freelance web developer.
Are you naturally creative? Do you have a knack for thinking outside the box? Do your friends often come to you for tips on color palettes or accessorizing outfits?
If so, working in the design industry may be one way to turn your imagination and originality into a career. Because what could be better than earning a paycheck for something you’re already passionate about?
There are many specialties that fall under the umbrella of the design industry. For example, a fashion designer is different from a textile designer, which are both very different from an interior designer.
While they all share similarities, there are distinct differences in these fields. Understanding these distinctions is an important part of determining what type of career you’d like to pursue.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to combine your love of technology with your passion for design, you’ll probably find yourself faced with a tough choice: GRAPHIC DESIGN versus WEB DESIGN.
It’s important to have a comprehensive understanding of each field in order to determine which best suits you and your personality. Conducting a little extra research now can help prepare you for success in the long run.
We created an infographic that outlines these two common—and commonly misunderstood—career paths.
Opinions from the experts …
Although aspects like job growth and salary potential are definitely important, they shouldn’t be the determining factors in your quest for the perfect career. After all, if you’re going to be investing 40-plus hours per week into this job, you might as well enjoy what you’re doing, right?
We got in touch with some professionals in both fields to hear their thoughts on the debate over graphic design versus web design. These thoughts came straight from industry experts, so consider them insider perspectives.
After gathering their thoughts, we broke them down into bite-sized chunks to make them easy to digest. These tidbits should help give you a better idea of which career suits you best.
Graphic designers …
1)Put the art first
2)Have a one-way relationship with their audience
3)More artistic (i.e., sketch with a pen and paper)
4)Emphasize visual theory in their designs
5)Must focus on how a design communicates a message to its audience
6)Need to know how each element of a design translates to print
7)Have one shot to get a design right once it’s printed
Web designers …
1)See the art as a way to leverage technology
2)Have a mutual interaction with their audience
3)More technical (i.e., coding and programming)
4)Employ an engineering approach to their designs
5)Must predict how a design will make its audience feel and react
6)Need to know how to design for versatile mediums (i.e, laptop, tablet, smartphone)
7)Can develop and enhance their work over time
So after comparing graphic design versus web design on multiple levels, you should be able to confidently determine the field in which you’ll excel. Once you decide which creative path you’re interested in traveling, take a moment to learn more about the education that can jumpstart your journey.

A framework, or software framework, is a platform for developing software applications. It provides a foundation on which software developers can build programs for a specific platform. For example, a framework may include predefined classes and functions that can be used to process input, manage hardware devices, and interact with system software. This streamlines the development process since programmers don’t need to reinvent the wheel each time they develop a new application.
A framework is similar to an application programming interface (API), though technically a framework includes an API. As the name suggests, a framework serves as a foundation for programming, while an API provides access to the elements supported by the framework. A framework may also include code libraries, a compiler, and other programs used in the software development process.
Several different types of software frameworks exist. Popular examples include ActiveX and .NET for Windows development, Cocoa for Mac OS X, Cocoa Touch for iOS, and the Android Application Framework for Android. Software development kits (SDKs) are available for each of these frameworks and include programming tools designed specifically for the corresponding framework. For example, Apple’s X code development software includes a Mac OS X SDK designed for writing and compiling applications for the Cocoa framework.
In many cases, a software framework is supported natively by an operating system. For example, a program written for the Android Application Framework will run on an Android device without requiring other additional files to be installed. However, some applications require a specific framework in order to run. For example, a Windows program may require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, which is not installed on all Windows machines (especially PCs running older versions of Windows). In this case, the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 installer package must be installed in order for the program to run.
While frameworks generally refer to broad software development platforms, the term can also be used to describe a specific framework within a larger programming environment. For example, multiple Java frameworks, such as Spring, ZK, and the Java Collections Framework (JCF) can be used to create Java programs. Additionally, Apple has created several specific frameworks that can be accessed by OS X programs. These frameworks are saved with a .FRAMEWORK file extension and are installed in the/System/Library/Frameworks directory. Examples of OS X Framework includeAddressBook.framework, CoreAudio.framework, CoreText.framework, and QuickTime. framework.
