PHP (is the) Prophylactic against Outsourcing

I recently wrote an article on about outsourcing and how to protect against it. Besides my rant against crony capitalist, I pointed out that PHP is the language of choice, for those who don’t want to get their jobs shipped overseas.


PHP is used much more often in small projects by small business; they tend to prefer local talent than to outsource. Please read the article I linked to for details.

That’s all for now … too hot today to do much work.

    My last job I was PHP/MySQL Developer and Systems Admin. My job and a couple of others were replaced with outsourcing from Russia.

    Sorry to hear that.

    My point was not to say if you do PHP, will not get outsourced. Rather it is to say that PHP is widely used in small and medium sized projects, by small and medium sized businesses … they tend not to outsource and they tend to prefer working with local talent.

    … I pointed that out in the article I linked to.
