Reddit.com:
What constitutes the "PHP community"?
July 18, 2014 @ 12:09:37

There's a good conversation happening over on Reddit today about what constitutes the "PHP community" and how it can be defined. JordanLeDoux wonders if those who just write PHP are included in that group as well.

One conversation was with a dev who hates PHP because (mostly) they work with code that was written by some non-PHP dev who was asked to write it. The other was with /u/krakjoe from the PHP internals team, where I was commenting on a sentiment that sometimes finds its way into the internals mailing list: if you want a real programming language, then go use one. In both cases, I made the assertion that most people who utilize PHP or edit a script aren't actually part of the PHP community. [...] How can someone that is functionally isolated from any other person working in PHP be part of the PHP community?

Responses to the post are, for the most part, encouraging suggesting that

  • There's not a single "PHP community" but many smaller ones
  • sub-communitiies can revolve around technology or a product
  • The different definitions of community
  • The broad range of skills that "PHP developers" are known to have
