PHP: the teenage years

With the passing of PHP's 15th birthday recently, Marco Tabini has taken the opportunity to share some of his opinions on where the language has come from and where he sees it going in the future.

Milestones are not as important in our industry as they are in our lives - the way I see it, if you work in the computer field and turn to look at back at what has been, someone will have passed you by - but there are some very important lessons that can be learned from the story of PHP.

He talks about PHP's direction (and sometimes lack there of), what developers from other languages think about PHP and some of what it will take to get both the community and the PHP development group to step up and overcome the challenges to making the future of the language better.
