Binary Studio's extensive experience with the LAMP stack for web application development let us provide easy and elegant solutions for any web development challenge.
Binary Studio provides a complete range of web application development services on the LAMP package (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl). We are going to tell you how and why we use LAMP development technologies.
LAMP is an open source software solution stack that is used to build web servers. The name originates from the first letters of its principal components:
- Linux is a family of computer operating systems. It is used for all kinds of computer hardware from mobile telephones to supercomputers. It is very versatile, supports many programming languages. Linux is a dominant operating system used in servers.
- Apache HTTP Server is web server software. It is the most popular HTTP software due to its functionality, value and good performance. It supports a whole range of features, which extend its functionality.
- MySQL is a relational database management system. It works as a server to provide multi-user access to databases. It is a popular choice for web applications.
- PHP is a general-purpose scripting language for web development. It can work as a processor for web servers or a graphic application.
- Perl is a very flexible and powerful programming language. It is used for text processing, network and graphics programming, system administration, etc.
Although these programs were not designed to be used as a software suite, they have become one. It is a powerful tool for web development and is a must for any serious outsourcing company, because it enables it to develop applications locally and then deploy them to the web. The LAMP stack’s effectiveness as a development tool lies in the popularity of each of its components, their adaptability and ease of use. Using these technologies for outsourcing PHP and MySQL web development project results in fast and high-quality performance of our LAMP development team.
For its LAMP software development projects, Binary Studio uses primarily advanced Symfony and Zend web application frameworks.
Symfony is an open-source full-stack library written in PHP. It is one of the fastest and most popular PHP frameworks around. It doesn’t invent any revolutionary features itself – to the contrary, it utilizes best practices of PHP web development and proven concepts from other frameworks. Symfony combines well-known design patterns supplemented by a truly unmatched flexibility, simplicity and web debug tool. This makes Symfony one of the most capable application frameworks available. It was designed to simplify software developers’ life and at the same time boost their productivity. This allows building and releasing better applications faster and more problem-free, ultimately cutting the cost of PHP development.
Another web application framework used by Binary Studio is Zend Framework. Like Symfony, it is a high-quality open-source, object-oriented web application library with flexible architecture that was designed to build modern web applications and services easily and effectively.
Everything in it revolves around three main features: extreme simplicity and productivity, use-at-will architecture with minimal interdependencies between components and well-tested code base. Its simple business-friendly open source license makes it ideal for business solutions. We at Binary Studio, one of the leading PHP development company in Eastern Europe, make sure that our customers get the most out of what they pay for with our PHP and MySQL web development services. That’s why we use Symfony and Zend Frameworks. They allow us to build more reliable, modern, and better products faster. This is a win-win solution for both our clients and us. So every LAMP development project automatically becomes less labor-intensive and time-consuming, yet high-quality and advanced.
When developing software, we concentrate on data security and completeness, and speed of data transfer between web applications and databases. We also utilize popular ORM (Object Relational Mapping) libraries like Doctrine and Propel for our LAMP development projects.
Doctrine is an object-relational mapper that provides a powerful ORM solution for the PHP language. It features very broad object-related functionality and simplifies programming by being able to generate object classes from existing databases. Doctrine is also able to work with an object oriented SQL dialect called DQL that provides developers with powerful alternative to SQL.
Propel is also an object-relational mapping toolkit for PHP. It functions as a mapper between PHP classes and database tables and serves as an integral part of the Symfony framework. As a challenging PHP development company, we pay great attention to usage of the most advanced and up-to-date technologies.
Binary Studio has extensive experience using the LAMP stack for application development projects of various complexities – from simple websites to advanced business solutions. Our goal is to provide you with a viable LAMP development tool that suits the needs of your business. The LAMP stack gives you an opportunity to make the Web work for your benefit. Due to their adaptability, LAMP-built systems can work on servers that use Microsoft Windows. And there is one more point to note: all components of this solution stack are free, so you pay for the developed product only and you don’t have to purchase any additional licenses.
