Giorgio Sironi's Blog:
Missing the point (OOP in scripting languages)
July 29, 2010 @ 08:49:59

On his blog today Giorgio Sironi has a response to this post from the I Am Learning PHP blog asking if web scripting languages really need OOP functionality.

Yesterday I came across a question: Do Web-Scripting Languages Really Need OOP? Here's my answer: only if you want to do more than an Hello World script (which is paradoxically how old school programmers measure the utility of a language.) I'll express some of my thoughts without compromises, which will be up to you.

He opposes the claims of the other post, noting that there's a reason most PHP frameworks are object-oriented and his concern with some of the comments on the post. He also responds to two of the comments on the post - one about the private scope and the other about namespaces.
