php sucks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is a total flame thread, but I read this article this morning and I was cracking up. Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror is a great writer, and he just tears apart php. Of course it's a one-sided argument, but he makes it entertaining and I enjoyed it as a php => .Net convert.

It's [php] a galactic supernova of incomprehensibly colossal, mind-bendingly awful suck. If you sit down to program in PHP and have even an ounce of programming talent in your entire body, there's no possible way to draw any other conclusion. It's inescapable.

We are still using PHP, .net and others but 7 of 10 recent projects move to .net.

I <3 PHP.

after years of programming, I must say I love php. It is very capable and a very nice way to interface with mySQL.


also VB is for noobz

PHP owns. Made a website when I was 15 years old with a PHP back-end. Sold it a couple years later for $6000.

I hate JSP enough to say you sir have no taste in dynamic languages. I would rather use pre PHP 4.x than use JSP.

PHP sucks because only one thing. It's too easy to learn/use because every lamer start programming big/commercial products, without knowing anything of OOP and that in PHP you do not have to write the algorithms on your own, you have "internal"/integrated functions for that.

I was a lamer too, but I advanced.

Microsoft Bulgaria representative tried to convince me that writing on .NET takes less code/work than writing on PHP. I wasn't very convinced, but maybe it is true. But Zend Framework resolves the problem.
