I love PHP. I’ve worked with a fair number of languages and I have to say that I absolutely love PHP. I love its cleanliness, its elegance, and its fabulours online documentation and community support.
I come across a lot of people in various walks of life who rubbish the language because of various perceived (usually historical) weaknesses. So when I saw this article from DevZone I felt I had to post and say how much I agree with it. I also think that the PHP community might benefit from a little more self-promotion once in a while … but it seems that everyone is rather too busy “solving the web problem” (the original aim of PHP) to worry about little things like that :)
