Mashable.com:
8 Experts Break Down the Pros and Cons of Coding With PHP
November 23, 2010 @ 12:06:44

Mashable has posted the third part of their "PHP experts" series with a look at what the eight people on their panel think are some of the pros and cons about developing with PHP.

In recent posts, our "PHP masters" gave helpful hints for beginners as well as some pointers for intermediate and advanced coders. For the last post in this series, we've turned to the same experts with some more general questions: What makes PHP a good language? What are some of PHP's drawbacks? And what are the best apps or cleverest hacks you've seen made with and/or for PHP?

Some of the reasons the panels gave were some common issues you hear about with PHP every day - how easy the language makes "spaghetti coding", the low barrier to entry (both good and bad), a problem with copy and pasting and - a very good thing - the documentation the project provides. Disclaimer: I was a member of the panel.
