A Decade of PHP
Jun 07, 2005 @ 10:58:32

Tomorrow will mark a huge milestone in the history of PHP - the 10th anniversary of the first release of PHP.

From this entry over on Christian Stocker's Blog (bitflux): I started with PHP/FI 2.0 some time in 1996 in my free time during my studies at the ETH Zurich. A fast internet connection and some unofficial, but free hosting there helped a lot in getting into the whole Web/PHP-thingie. After using perl for my first programming experiences, PHP came like a godsend and I appreciated all the features it had every beginner enjoys still today.

[...] Looks like Rasmus really changed also my life, and not only Zak's. And I can't say it better than Zak, so I just quote him here: "Rasmus really did a great thing by inventing, sharing and nurturing PHP. While many, many people made it all happen, Rasmus (and, indirectly, Rasmus' wife Christine) is the baling wire and duct tape that held it all together."

So, celebrate tomorrow (June 7th) with the entire PHP community for this wonderful, crazy decade that gave birth to one of the most powerful, flexible, easy-to-use web languages out there!
