Sites That Will Pay You to Test Out Websites

As a blogger, it’s important to know that my site is user-friendly. Because if I’m losing visitors due to lousy navigation, lack of clarity, poor design, or content — then I’m losing money. This is why companies will pay good money for objective third-party reviews of their website.

To do this job from home, you will need to be internet savvy and speak fluent English. You will also need some basic equipment like a computer with a microphone, broadband internet connection, and an updated web browser. Most tests take between 5 – 25 minutes to complete and pay an average of $10 per test.

If you’d like to work from home testing websites, here are 11 sites to check out.

Each test takes about 20 minutes to complete and pays 8 £ or around $12.50 US dollars. Payments are made via PayPal on the 25th day of each month.

WhatUsersDo is open to global residents who have an active PayPal account.

uTest hires independent contractors for quality assurance testing for various software and hardware. According to their job posting on Dice, their customers includes brands like Google, Amazon, Netflix, and more. To get started, fill out their online application (takes approximately 10 minutes), take an audition test to showcase your tech skills, then wait for assignments to be sent to you via email. I wasn’t able to find out how much testers are paid, but the job listing on Dice says, “In 2016 alone, we paid out over $20 million to QA testers worldwide.”

uTest is open to global residents
Now if you’re anything like me, you’re multiplying how many tests you can complete in an hour and how much you’re going to make. But hold your horses! These opportunities are extremely popular! Statistically, there are fewer customers than testers, so don’t expect to be completing three tests every hour on the hour.

Here’s how to make the most of this work-at-home opportunity:

1. Sign up with as many website testing companies as possible.

2. Be sure that you’re taking advantage of practice and sample testing opportunities, as many companies will only allow you a couple of times to pass their test.

3. Always make sure to turn in your best possible work, as many companies rate their testers and those with higher scores tend to get more and better-paying gigs.

4. While you’re waiting for these companies to email you with test opportunities, be sure to add short tasks, focus groups, and digital earning tasks to your routine — this will ensure that you have a constant pipeline of work and income coming in.

And if you’re located outside of the U.S. — check out this post, it has a bunch of opportunities for global residents!

Looking for more gigs like this one? Then consider working from home as a Web Search Evaluator — this post will tell you all about it.

LAMP vs MEAN, Deciding the right stack for your startup

Move over LAMP. MEAN is the new kid on the block.

It’s what all the trendy startups are using. It’s fun. It’s hip. It’s new. MEAN is taking over the web development world. But how does the stack stack up?

What’s LAMP?

Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. The holy grail of web development for at least as long as I can remember. This stack represents the foundation of the web.

While its age may be showing, its maturity is strong. The LAMP stack can be altered to replace MySQL with MonogDB, and PHP with Python. The acronym defines a low level configuration for web applications.

What’s MEAN?

MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and Node.js makes up the MEAN stack. A powerful JavaScript driven stack with diverse capabilities.

Comparatively to LAMP, the database layer is replaced completely with JSON storage using MongoDB. JSON is the native data language of JavaScript. While relatively young, the framework has a growing number of supporters.

This stack is basically a JavaScript lover’s dream.

Which to Choose?

As always, the answer is: it depends.

Both stacks have advantages and disadvantages. Which one to use depends on the type of web application to be built. Providing a blanket statement of superiority would be greatly oversimplifying software development.

Isn’t PHP Dying?

This has long been cried by the anti-PHP crowd. For years we’ve been hearing that PHP is on the way out. Yet PHP maintains a stronghold on the Internet. It powers an insanely high number of websites globally.

PHP has undergone major revamping through its recent major releases. PHP 7 is just around the corner, expected to bring along language and performance improvements.

Possessing a long history and maintaining backwards provides a disadvantage of innovativeness. Especially in comparison to the light development history of Node.JS. Node.JS however doesn’t offer the same level of maturity. Over time, libraries and frameworks will be built to further improve the infrastructure of Node.JS. Regardless, PHP isn’t going to die any time soon.

JavaScript on the Front, JavaScript on the Back

One common touted advantage of using JavaScript for both the server and the client is code reuse.

While it sounds good in theory, it’s rarely seen in practice. Separation of concerns is a very good thing. Keeping server and client codebases separate can have security benefits. It’s just not a common case to have to move a function from server to client.

Using JavaScript for both the front and back end however may make it easier for some teams to easily switch developing between the two. It creates a more homogeneous workflow. This is especially important when you have one or two full stack developers working on the application as a whole.

It can be quite a challenge to switch between using PHP or Python for the server, then having to use JavaScript and HTML for the client. If you only know JavaScript and nothing else (which could be the case for a new programmer), then MEAN is the easier choice.

If a MEAN stack makes your development life easier, then you should probably choose that.

End Users Could Break Your Website

It’s difficult to predict future behavior of consumers.

Ad blocking has become more commonplace as of recent years. Privacy has become an increasing concern. While most users have JavaScript enabled, some users do not. Some users disable JavaScript to better protect their privacy. Others don’t like unknown code to be executing on their machines.

Various browser extensions allow users to selectively choose which scripts they permit to run. And which they don’t. This may effectively break your web application if it’s dependent on JavaScript.

You might not need to cater for users with JavaScript disabled. Many web applications, like Facebook, are practically useless without JavaScript enabled.

Some users may even use client readers such as Pocket to circumvent visiting your website altogether. Considering today’s options for digesting content, it wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense for a blog to be accessible only with JavaScript enabled.

Disabling JavaScript in your browser can make a lot of the web unusable. AdBlock has been known to break a few websites too. Some websites have countered the rise of AdBlock by neglecting or even banning that segment of users.

JavaScript certainly helps add a modern dimension to web apps. It might not even be feasible to cater for users with JavaScript disabled. Still, accessibility and compatibility is a factor to take into account. MEAN depends on JavaScript. If users disable JavaScript, they’ve killed your web app.

What might be uncommon today may become more common tomorrow. Utilizing lots of JavaScript on the client’s side may turn to backfire if they opt not to run it. The user’s browser is outside of your control.

JavaScript Slows Down the Browser

Speed is another concern.

If you’re developing for any non-first world country, then relying on a JavaScript heavy frontend is probably not the best choice. On older phone devices especially, performance can be slowed down to a crawl. Sometimes it can be cubersome to load even jQuery, let alone processing-heavy AngularJS for modulated views.

Wait, Isn’t Node.JS Super Fast?

Node.JS is incredibly quick. When optimized, so too is PHP.

Node.JS has an advantage of being event-driven (illustrated above). This allows many concurrent requests with less slowdown. Traditional Apache setups are multi-threaded and resource heavy. As a result, LAMP can be slow.

PHP’s speed can be dramatically enhanced through the use of Nginx, Lightspeed or optimizing Apache configuration. While Apache is multi-threaded in nature, Nginx is more similar to the event-driven nature of Node.JS.

For the most part, Apache can be replaced with Nginx in many LAMP based applications. However, an optimized setup requires additional complications and expertise. Considering how many existing scripts and virtual machines automate the setup process, this isn’t too much of a problem.

While Node.JS can be easily configured, setting up a well performing LAMP stack (or LNMP, replacing Apache with Nginx) can add a little extra time to configure.

These speed differences are likely not to become problematic until heavy load is experience. Most startups never live long enough for this to even be an issue. Scaling is a good problem to have. If you need to scale, then that means your startup is doing something right.

Both LAMP and MEAN virtual machines can be spun up really quickly for development, testing and even production. Node.JS has some advantages for future scaling. But that’s not to say that LAMP can’t scale.

Don’t Neglect the Client

What’s neglected in a lot of speed comparisons is the client side processing. Most servers can serve up pages relatively quickly – within fractions of a second.

Where users are left waiting is from loading up client-side resources like CSS, JavaScript, images and video. For speed improvements, developers should place most of their attention on the client side rather than the back end. A fraction of a second speed improvement is negligible when most websites take much longer than two seconds to load.

Especially on mobile devices, modern JavaScript intensive web applications can be slow. Web apps are cool, but sometimes you’re probably better off developing a native mobile app. To get high performance from mobile web apps, you generally need to cut back on the JavaScript libraries.

AngularJS, while bundled in the MEAN stack, is an independent JavaScript client side library that can easily integrate into web applications. Including LAMP based stacks. Adding more and more client side processing by including additional JavaScript libraries can significantly slow down an application. This slow down really has very little to do with the stack itself. Both LAMP and MEAN applications can become incredibly slow once lots of client side resources are added.

Further speed optimizations can be obtained through utilization of CDNs, lazy loading, resource minification and minimizing the total number of requests.

The Unfair “A”

There’s no direct replacement for AngularJS in the LAMP stack. MEAN cuts out the HTTP server (the Apache in LAMP) completely since Node.JS runs independently (though in a production environemnt you may very well add a HTTP server). AngularJS is also an independent framework that could be added to any LAMP stack.

In this sense, comparing LAMP to MEAN is unjust. MEAN includes a front end component, whereas LAMP refers to just the back end. LAMP refers more to low level, whereas MEAN is more high level. There’s no operating system reference in MEAN, though you’ll most likely borrow Linux from LAMP.

There’s no reason you couldn’t add a front end component to LAMP. In fact, most implementations do. At the very least jQuery is usually added, or sometimes Backbone.js. There’s nothing preventing you from using AngularJS on top of LAMP. Or replacing AngularJS in a MEAN stack. There are also many competing libraries to choose from (like React and Ember).

MEAN does have the advantage in that it’s more GUI-focused. The GUI is baked into the stack itself, instead of being left outside.

When Would I Use LAMP vs MEAN?

It probably wouldn’t make much sense to migrate an existing LAMP application to MEAN. But if I were starting a brand new UI-focused application, I’d probably opt for a MEAN (or maybe MEN, cutting out AngularJS and possibly replacing it with something else).

Whether or not I’d use MongoDB or MySQL would depend on the type of data being planned to store. I may very well set up both. Or if it were a really data heavy application that required quick searches, I may even add in ElasticSearch or Solr.

If all you need is a simple website, it’d be quite foolish to opt for MEAN. LAMP topped with a powerful CMS like WordPress or Drupal can meet the needs of many business websites. For most eCommerce businesses, there’s plenty of existing software to handle the job. MEAN should only be considered for tech-heavy businesses.

Too many times I’ve seen startups struggling with their software development because they’ve opted for new and cool over mature and stable. Just because you can do just about anything in LAMP/MEAN, doesn’t mean you should. You should use the best tool for the job. If you want to adopt a new technology, be prepared for potential debugging nightmares and a lot of reinventing the wheel.

Another thing to consider would be the team. PHP programmers are generally much more common. Subsequently, PHP programmers can be hired for lower costs than Node.JS programmers. If I were working with a team that knew PHP well, but wasn’t experienced with Node.JS, then it probably wouldn’t be worthwhile to teach the whole team a new development platform. Or vice versa. You need to stick with what you know.

If I were building a backend API, I’d probably almost always choose a LAMP based stack, opting for Python and perhaps MongoDB (and probably ditching Apache in place of Nginx). There are many REST libraries written to make your life easier.

A startup’s success is not determined by its stack
Although a lot of dogma exists in software development, there really isn’t any better or worse. Software developers tend to become emotionally attached to one platform over another as it requires an enormous amount of personal investment (in the form of time and effort) to master a platform. New developers may be fond of MEAN, whereas older developers are probably more likely to cling onto LAMP.

Deciding between LAMP and MEAN is really project specific. Depending on available skills, business constraints and application demands, one could be forgiven choosing either option.

What we need to keep in mind is that a startup’s success is not determined by its stack. What determines success is execution. Time spent between contemplating LAMP vs MEAN can usually be better spent elsewhere. Like, actually obtaining customers and figuring out what you need to build.

AngularJS removes the need to manage the DOM. This allows for pretty applications, but difficult for search engine parsing. If SEO is an important marketing channel for you, then utilizing AngularJS might not be such a great idea. Google will probably become better and add support for such web apps in the future, but right now we’re out of luck.

It Doesn’t Have to Be One Or The Other

Some applications you may have both stacks. You may have LAMP for the API, and MEAN for the GUI.

The technologies in each stack are not exclusive. You may use a relational database like MySQL or PostgreSQL, or a non-relational database like MongoDB or Cassandra.

You may choose to utilize JavaScript and Python. Or PHP. Or Go. Maybe even Erlang. Or one of hundreds of other programming languages that may suit your project better.

Your final stack may not neatly fit into an existing religious acronym. That’s perfectly okay too.

Top Programming Languages Used in Web Development

With the popularity and advancements in web technology, it is imperative for every business to have a website and one which is highly functional and visually attractive. The process through which a good website, mobile apps or other similar platforms are created is known as web development. One of the most integral aspects of web development is web programming that is achieved with the help of programming languages. Web development languages are the platforms through which instructions are communicated to a machine and actions are pursued.

In this article, we shall learn more about 1) web development and programming languages as well as 2) focus on the most popular programming languages in the world.


Web development is a term that is used to refer to the process of creating a website and can range from developing a single simple page to a series of complex pages. Web development encompasses several actions or practices and some of them include web design, content creation, programming, network security tasks as well as client side or server side scripting, etc. In the recent few years, web development has taken the definition of the creation of content management systems or CMS, which is the mid-step between the user and the database. In order to pursue web development as a profession, one of the most important things that you will need to consider is having expertise in programming languages.


A programming language is used to control the actions of a machine. Such a language is a properly drafted or constructed language when it is designed in such a way that through it instructions can be communicated to a computer system. Ever since the invention of computers, thousands of programming languages have been created, and more are being created every year.

A programming language is generally split into two components that are the semantics and the syntax. Where on one hand the syntax is the form or type, the semantics are the meaning of that type or form. Every programming language is different; where on one hand, some may be marked by a specification documents, others may have a dominant implementation or a reference. A programming language thus broadly is a notation that helps to write programs that are identified as an algorithm.

Traits of a programming language
The features or characteristics of a programming language can be referred to as its traits. The following are the three main traits of such languages that you must know about:

Abstractions – Most of the programming languages have certain rules that help us define or mark the data structures as well as manipulate the way in which the commands are executed. These rules are referred to as abstractions. Every language needs to be supported by sufficient abstractions and this need is defined by the abstraction principle. The abstraction principle in some cases is derived as the recommendations given to a web programmer so that he/she makes the correct use of abstractions.
Function and target – When you make use of a programming language, then besides doing the writing work on your own, you also need the help of the computer system that performs the computation work or controls the algorithm. The computer also controls the external devices associated such as the printer, the robots, etc. Thus, the complete definition of a programming language includes a description or a machine or processor that has been idealized for that language. This is one reason why programming languages differ from human languages of interaction.
Expressive power – Languages are mostly classified by the computations that they are able to express. This very expressive power is yet another trait of programming languages and is an important one.
Factors to be considered when choosing a programming language
Since there are so many different types of programming languages, it can be difficult for a web developer to select which one to use and which one to leave. There are certain factors on the basis of a decision can be made, and they are given as follows:

Targeted platform – The first thing you need to decide is where the program will be run. Not all languages are capable of running on all kinds of platforms. For example, a program written in C language requires compilers to run on Windows and Linux based systems.
Language domain match – The language must be chosen on the basis of the problem domain that you have. One of the better ways to do so is by searching that language others in the same domain or industry are using or by trying to look for a code that resolves the issues that you may have.
Efficiency – The compilers that go well with the language you choose must be efficient so as to make the language perform fast.
Elasticity and Performance – The language you choose must be flexible enough to let you add more programs or features in it. Also, its overall performance must be to your suitability and liking.
Availability of libraries – There must be a library that is capable of solving all your problems with the language that you select for web development.
Project size – There are two types of programming’s: large and small. You must select a language that can support your cause and suits the project size well.
Expressiveness & Time to production – Make sure you pick that language that is highly expressive and the time taken to produce the programs or codes is not very bothersome to you.
Tool support – Buy a tool-oriented language that offers you many elements and ways to edit, control and work.
Evolution of Programming Languages


The universe of programming languages is wide and knowing all or learning each one of them is neither practical nor possible. If you are a developer who is interested in learning the most useful and popular ones, then you must first know which ones of the thousands of languages to learn. Thankfully, there are certain websites and platforms that create lists of the top languages, according to their popularity. The list of the top 15 programming languages of this year are given below, and it is clear that JavaScript is the most popular followed closely by Java, Python, and others.

Top 15 programming languages in 2015
Objective C
Let’s learn about some of these top languages in detail.

1. JavaScript
JavaScript is one of the most popular and dynamic programming languages used for creating and developing websites. This language is capable of achieving several things including controlling the browser, editing content on a document that has been displayed, allowing client-side scripts to communicate with users and also asynchronous communication. It was developed by Netscape and borrows a lot of its syntax from C language. JavaScript is used very widely and effectively in creating desktop applications as well as for developing games.

One of the best things about JavaScript for you as a developer or a website owner is that this is one of the few programming languages that are accepted and supported by all the major browsers without the need of any compilers or plug-ins. It can also be worked with on platforms that are not web-based, for example-desktop widgets and PDF docs. This is a multi-paradigm language which means that it has a combination of features. Also, JavaScript supports functional and object-oriented programming styles.

The features of a language define the way it will work, the way it responds, how easy is its code and what it can achieve. The following are some of the main features of JavaScript programming language for your reference:

Structured – JavaScript is a highly structured language with a proper and planned syntax that has been derived from C. This language too has a function scoping by it lacks block scoping, unlike C. It too differentiates between statements and expressions, just like the fundamental C web programming platform.
Dynamic – The types in JavaScript are not related with variables but with values. This is a dynamic programming language that enables you to test the type of an object in many different ways. Also, this programming language is object-oriented where all the objects are associative arrays.
Functional – All functions in JavaScript are objects and are all first-class. They are associated with their own functions as well as characteristics. For example, a function within a function is called a nested function whereas this language also supports anonymous function.
2. Java
Java is yet another highly popular and widely used language that you can consider for web development. This language is an object-oriented, class-based and concurrent language that was developed by Sun Microsystems in the 1990s. Since then, the language continues to be the most in-demand language that also acts as a standard platform for enterprises and several mobile and games developers across the world. The app has been designed in such a way that it works across several types of platforms. This means that if a program is written on Mac Operating system then it can also run on Windows based operating systems.

Java, when it was designed originally, was developed for interactive television, but the developers realized that this language and technology was way too forward for this industry. It was only later that it was incorporated into the use it serves today.

Every language is created with a certain mission, goal or objective in mind. The following are the 5 major principles or goals that were kept in mind during the creation of this language:

It must be a secure and robust programming language
It must be an object-oriented, simple language which becomes familiar soon.
It must be capable of being implemented and executed with high performance.
It must be threaded, dynamic and interpreted.
It must be portable and architecture-neutral.
3. Python
Python is a highly used and all-purpose programming language which is dynamic in nature. Being dynamic in nature means that you as a developer can write and run the code without the need of a compiler. The design of the language is such that it supports code readability which means that its syntax is such that only a few lines of codes are needed to express a point or a concept. This concept of code readability is also possible in the case of Java and C++, etc. This is a high-level or advanced language that is considered easy for beginners to understand and learn.

Some of the apps that are powered by Python are Rdio, Instagram, and Pinterest. Besides this, some other web platforms that are supported by Python are Django, Google, NASA, and Yahoo, etc. Some of the other features of this language include automatic memory management, large library, dynamic type system and support of many paradigms.

Python works on a core philosophy and follows its main principles in all seriousness. The language was designed with the aim of making it highly extensible. This means that the language can easily be incorporated or embedded in existing applications. The goal of the developers of this language was to make it fun to use one. The developers worked on the language in such a way that it could reduce upon premature optimization. Here’s a look at some of the principles that have been summarized for you:

Readability is important
Complex is better than complicated-
Beautiful is better than ugly
Simple is better than complex
Explicit is better than implicit
4. CSS
CSS or Cascading Style Sheets is rather a markup language. When paired with HTML, CSS allow a developer to decide and define how a web page or a website will eventually look or how it will appear to the visitors of the web platform. Some of the elements which CSS has an impact on include font size, font style, the overall layout, the colors and other design elements. This is a markup language that can be applied to several types of documents including Plain XML documents, SVG documents as well as XUL documents. For most websites across the world, CSS is the platform to opt for if they need help to create visually attractive webpages and finds use not just in the creation of web applications but also mobile apps.

The language’s syntax is pretty similar to that of HTML and XHTML, which work well in synchronization and combination of one another. The Style sheets included in CSS consist of a selector and a declarator. The simple syntax of the language uses several English language words to define the styling properties.

5. PHP
The term ‘PHP’ is used to define PHP Hypertext Processor language that is a free server-side scripting language that has been designed for not just web development but also as a general-purpose programming platform. This is a widely used language that was created in the year 2004 and now powers over 200 million websites worldwide. Some popular examples of websites powered by this platform include Facebook, WordPress, and

PHP is an interpreted script language which means that it is usually processed by an interpreter. For this reason, the language is most suitable for server-side programming that have server tasks being repeatedly performed when the website development process is on.

The following are some more points that shall help you understand the language better:

PHP is an open source language and fast prototyping language.
This language is compatible with UNIX based OS as well as Windows OS.
Some industries where PHP is mostly used include startup businesses, advertising apps, and small software organizations as well as media agencies.
The language can be embedded in HTML directly.
6. Ruby
Developed in the year 1993, Ruby is a dynamic programming language that is used for the creation or programming of mobile apps and websites. The language successfully balances imperative programming with functional programming and is a highly scalable language. This open source platform is not only simple to understand but also easy to write. But if you are a developer who wants to learn Ruby, then you will also have to equip yourself with the knowledge of Ruby on Rails or Rails which is another framework which can help you make it interesting to deal with Ruby. For those who are interested in creating small business software and for those who are into the field of creative designing, Ruby is the perfect programming language.

During its development, the idea was to come up with a language that was more productive in terms of programming and has a concise and simple code. Ruby is mostly used in the web servers where there is a lot of web traffic. Some examples of platforms that make use of this programming language include Hulu, Twitter, and Scribd, etc.

7. C++
C++ is a general purpose, well compiled and case sensitive web programming language that is not only imperative but also offers facilities for low-level memory manipulation. Since the language makes use of both low-level features as well as the feature of high-level languages, it is considered as a middle-level language. This language was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in the year 1979 and was later enhanced and renamed in 1983. Since C++ is an object oriented language, it supports the 4 principles of object oriented development including polymorphism, encapsulation, inheritance, and data hiding.

C++ is similar to C language in a lot of ways and is in fact the superset of C. This means that any program of C language is a program of C++ programming language. The language has many technical details, but the key to learning this language for you is not to get lost in these details but rather concentrate on its concepts.

Like any other language, this language too based on a philosophy and has certain elements that make it what it really is. C++ consists of three important parts, and they are given as follows:

The standard library of C++ is capable of giving a rich combination and gamut of features such as strings and manipulating sets, etc.
The standard template library or STL is capable of giving a rich set of methods manipulating data structures and other elements.
The core C++ language has the capability of giving the building elements like literals, data types, and variables.
8. C Language
C is another general-purpose and imperative programming language which was developed way back in the 70s and is similar to C++ language. This language is known to be the most widely used programming platform that offers building elements for other languages like C++, Python, Java and others. These languages borrow features either directly or indirectly from it, and some of these include control structures, overall syntax, and standard libraries. This is the reason why if you want to learn programming, it is advisable that you learn C and C++ first and then move onto the others after strengthening your foundation. Some of the features that this language supports include static type system, lexical variable scope, recursion and structured programming.

The following are some of the points which shall help you understand the overall design of C language:

C is a procedural or imperative language
The language was designed in such a way that can be easily compiled by making use of a simple compiler.
The language was designed to offer a low-level access to memory.
It was designed in a way that it should need minimum possible run-time support and encourages cross-platform programming.
