The Relative Importance of Web Development

P: n/a
If you follow the evolution of software development on Internet, you
may have the impression that every new development is Web based and
that the main areas of concern are whether you should develop new
application with Ruby on Rail or if you should choose Flash rather
than Ajax for the interface. However, if you ask developers, you may
find that the Web is not as ubiquitous in their work as you may think.

Even if 66% of the participants develop the majority of their new
applications with a browser as the interface, there is still a large
portion of developers that are working today for operating contexts
that are outside the Web world, like embedded software or Windows
applications.

You might wonder what percentage of PHP developers do NOT develop for the

I think PHP can be used for other purposes as well.
For instance I just found this article: http://www.phphacks.com/content/view/32/33/

Yes, of course.
I still wonder what percentage of PHP developers do NOT develop for the web.
I would be surprised if that is more than 5%.

Erwin,

I'd say it's much higher. At least 75% of the PHP programmers I know do
at least some developing of batch scripts. Cron jobs, test scripts,
database mass updates, etc.

Sure, they do a lot of web work also - but it's not one or the other.
