    It is more than two years I'm working full-time on PHP and I subscribe and quote every single line of this post, expecially that one relating to which feature to use and which to steer away.

    It is worse if global keyword wouldn't exist, trust me. It explicitly tells to people looking into the function that the variable is global. Also it is useful to know that a variable is global when...

    That's because PHP is a template language. The $ in front of variables is a fast way to include variables inside string definition without doing string concatenation:

    "Hello I am $myname"

    ARM architectures have a nomenclature that may be a bit confusing:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture#Cores

    Raspberry Pi (bcm2835 soc) is an ARM11 architecture with an ARMv6...

    In my opinion, one of the most interesting things is the community and the efforts to document the features of the hardware.
    No boards and SoCs have documentation like RPi, now even drivers are open...

    Premise: for large cooperative project I intend large corporative project where 10 or more developers work on it, and not some open source project living on github where x people sometimes commit...

    You can do unit tests, coverage analysis and regression tests for C and Java too. I don't see the point.

    Isn't that the job of an opcode cache?
    APC module is pretty standard and stable from long time now and does exactly that: avoid the recompilation of the script on each request. Now there's the new...

    I'd go with latest 3.16 kernel and stay with default mesa found in the distro. In case there would still be problems, you may update mesa to latest version. However AFAIK your card should be using...

    Because r270x has a different architecture than r290 parts. Probably it has a different ALU/TMU/memory timings/memory bus combination that let it perform better in 2D than r290 parts. We should also...

    The problem with multiprocessing it that spawning processes and sharing objects between them is costly, and it is the main reason threads exists: don't fork the whole process, but create a new...

    Not necessarily. PHP, for example, prevents wrong behavior having different operators for sum (+) and string concatenation (.). You can sum two strings and you will obtain the sum of the numbers,...

    Mmmh, I don't share the same conclusion. The article never talks about a general purpose PHP, and actually I share many of the ideas that guy talks about. Killing ancient concepts, tidying up the...

    I never said that being dynamically typed is a problem. Scripting languages usually are dynamically typed. But python is also strongly typed, and this requires a bit more attention during the...

    Quite common for class names, but method names sometimes have a mixed naming convention. Take a look to threading module, for example. The problem is much more evident in PHP however.



    Well, I...

    So you're suggesting an IDE to solve the issues of a language? Sorry but I would prefer a radical solution, this is just hiding the problems and not solving them.

    What is happening is that many...

    Oh god, no... python has the same pitfalls php has and many more. It's a nice language and has nice feature and data handling, but in my opinion it is completely unsuitable for large cooperative...

    There's some confusion on what is "r600" and what is not.
    r600 was the original radeon hd2900 chip, was it is also the family of chips comprising all the hd2xxx and hd3xxx boards chips.

    Maybe you miss something.

    Fact: both latest amd and nvidia cards work *now* with their blobs.
    Fact: amd cards will have fully open support in the future
    Fact: nvidia cards have reverse...

    So you get what? Another card that doesn't run on opensource stack and needs a closed blob...
    At least support for an amd card will come sooner or later; forget it about nvidia.
