The results of this week's International PHP Magazine poll have been posted. The question this time asked which, out of the four choices they gave, was the most popular opinion when dealing with objects in PHP.
Coming out on top with 33.3% of the votes is "Folks who follow design patterns religiously are missing the point" - an interesting choice for most of the developers out there. Design patterns can be one of the most useful bits of functionality in an application if used right. The option, however, is a bit vague - do they mean that they only use design patterns in their code or that they use them at all?
There was a tie for second place between the "Other reasons" and "Classes and inheritance are not new to PHP 5" options. Pulling up the rear with only 5.6% of the votes was the last option, "Managing state between pages is very straight forward in PHP".
Be sure to check out and vote in this week's poll (a bit better subject matter) that asks the question "Why Does PHP Suck?".
