For my company I am looking into a billing solution that allows us to build our own web application. We are a utility company and this is kind of rare.
I'm working out of PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites. After this I plan to work out of PHP Advanced and Object-Oriented Programming. Then I plan to work out of Modern PHP and take a Unix and Secure Web Development class.
After I graduate next fall I was going to take a job in Birmingham for backend web development for aprox. 8 months before law school.
After law school I'll have a good idea of how to use PHP for clients. But while I'm building a practice and taking on clients I'll work for the utility company.
Is it possible for one person to develop the database structure, do the frontend (we are a utility company so it's cool if we look like OWASP, actually that would probably be the most professional) and build the backend? We will want to work with some software that ties into the database so online billing tasks are automated.
Will 8 months be enough or should I do more work during law school?
