    Phoronix: Sharing What You Love Or Hate About PHP

    Much like the views on Phoronix or GCC vs. Clang, computer enthusiasts tend to have polarizing views over PHP -- whether PHP is a great language or work of the devil...

    Personally, I don't have a problem with weak typing in theory, but PHP's implementation of it is more annoying than helpful.

    For a high-level scripting language, PHP sure has cumbersome, bulky syntax-- nothing like the compactness and expressiveness of Python.

    Also, here are some classics in the genre of PHP bashing:

    The fact that lots of people love PHP serves only to prove that lots of people only know one programming language.

      Fortunately, there is a guy who wrote an article about PHP that I completely agree with. It's called "a fractal of bad design".
      Here's the link: http://eev.ee/blog/2012/04/09/php-a-...of-bad-design/

      I personally tend to avoid PHP as much as I can. Why? Because everything in it is quirky, non-intuitive and I don't recall ever having any pleasant experience with it. And I haven't even mentioned its performance. There are some people who calculated how much CO2 emission could be saved if PHP weren't used: http://developers.slashdot.org/story...ook?art_pos=12

              PHP as a next-generation programming language
              Now that is a scary thought. I know each language have it's good and bad sides. Each language has it's area of application. But php is a language which always somehow manage to bore me. First of all whose brain dead idea was put a $ in front of all variables? Seriously? Another fact that many sub standard programmers use php and javascript to brain dead code base and call themself web developer is another reason for my hatred to them.

              I know some good programmers use php very adequately but there number are very few. With php, it is very easy to make a mess codebase. Which might be fine for some simple web pages, but for a large project using php, from my point of view is worst decision. Personally I would be much happy if php+javascript die and go in hell

                The fact that lots of people ITT hate PHP serves only to prove that lots of people here don't know any programming language.

                Yeah, let's all use ASP.NET instead.

                    it has provided me - a non-programmer end-user - with excellent tools like owncloud.

                    therefore i think PHP is brilliant.

                    when people start making excellent tools like owncloud in in python or ruby, or whatever, i'll revise my opinion.
