          PHP developers are suckers for punishment.

            I think that PHP is really nice, and it has improved hugely over the years and no longer deserves some of its past bad reputation.

            With PHP 8 finally it will get support for attributes/decorators, but unfortunately the syntax looks like it will be the rather ugly <<FooAttribute>> instead of @FooAttribute like Java and Python, or like [FooAttribute] in C#. The reason is that the @-sign is already used as a "silencer" operator to silence the output of functions that directly print/write in addition to returning a value, and that the []-characters are already used for array assignment.

            PHP initially didn't have support for object orientation though, so while classes are objects, primitive data types such as strings are not objects, so you cannot do things like like "Hello".reverse() which would have been nice.

              there is a php rfc that will change the syntax. based on the votes so far @@FooAttribute will be the new syntax. this is not yet included in the alpha release cause it is still in the voting stage.

              match expression will also make it at php 8.
