Stuart Herbert's Blog:
Missing The Business Case For PHP
January 18, 2007 @ 08:40:00

In this new post to his blog today, Stuart Herbert suggests something that the PHP community really is in dire need of - a site/resource providing a place developers can point at to help refute some of the PHP rumors floating around and provide examples and test cases for one of the most stubborn PHP markets out there - business.

At work, we make and sell software written in a number of languages; our flagship product is written in PHP.

But one of the unfortunate side-effects of Stefan Esser's much-publicized departure from the PHP Security Team has been an increase in the number of IT staff we're coming across who "believe" both that open-source is inherently insecure, and that PHP in particular has incurable problems. These "beliefs" hurt ISVs trying to sell PHP-based applications into skeptical organizations.

He asks why there is no "Why PHP?" resource out there that clients/businesses in general can be referred to for better information. He also suggests one of the most logical fits for this kind of information and is surprised they don't really have something already - Zend. Check out the comments to see how much of the community is already behind the effort.
