PHP the teenage years
June 15, 2010 @ 09:33:07

With the passing of PHP's 15th birthday recently, Marco Tabini has taken the opportunity to share some of his opinions on where the language has come from and where he sees it going in the future.

Milestones are not as important in our industry as they are in our lives - the way I see it, if you work in the computer field and turn to look at back at what has been, someone will have passed you by - but there are some very important lessons that can be learned from the story of PHP.

He talks about PHP's direction (and sometimes lack there of), what developers from other languages think about PHP and some of what it will take to get both the community and the PHP development group to step up and overcome the challenges to making the future of the language better.

PHP Turns 15!
June 08, 2010 @ 08:53:33

Happy birthday to one of the web's most popular web scripting languages! As Johannes Schluter mentions in a new post to his blog, PHP turned 15 years od on June 8th - the day Rasmus first announced PHP 1.0.

I can't remember when I first went online. Out from the local BBS systems into the wide open net. It must have been around the same time. But soon I figured out that I needed my own homepage, so I created one, using black fonts on a green (#00ff00) background. I was proud. [...] My brother, who setup our Linux box at home but didn't know much about Apache, had the pragmatic solution: PHP worked. So what did I do? - Learn PHP. And I loved it.

Over fifteen years old now and still going strong, PHP has become one of the top five popular languages and his proven itself again and again in both web applications and in the sites of larger companies to be a reliable, robust solution and one that's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Here's a few other sites with thoughts on this milestone for PHP:

Phorum Turns 10
April 18, 2008 @ 10:27:12

According to Brian Moon's blog today, the popular PHP forum package Phorum has hit the 10 year mark in its development:

So, I am at the MySQL Conference this week with my Phorum co-developers. We got to talking last night about how old Phorum is. We knew it was about 10 years. We pulled up some old archived zip file of version 1.5 and found in the this in the comment block. "* Created 04/16/1998" Whoa! That means that yesterday was the 10th birthday of the Phorum project.

The current version of Phorum is 5.2 stable and can be downloaded directly from their site.

Wolfgang Drews' Blog:
More on PHP Logos
February 26, 2008 @ 08:17:00

Following up on Philip Olson's post about the evolution of PHP logos, Wolfgang Drews (of DynamicWebPages.de) has posted a few other examples.

Philip Olson has posted some kind of history of php-logos, so here are my two cents.

Included in his post are things like a 3D rendered example of a PHP booth, a few random ones he found that he had created for his site and the infamous PHP cake from the ten year birthday of the language.

PHP4 turns 7 years old today
May 22, 2007 @ 09:27:00

As Sara Golemon points out on her blog today, it's the 7th birthday of the very first release of PHP4:

Check the official releases page for yourself. PHP 4.0.0 was released seven years ago today. Make a cake, blow out some candles, and put on your birthday suit (no not that one); Now give that brat a kick out the door, he's been loafing around on your server for too long.

Of course, if you're still stuck in the PHP4 days, there's the latest - PHP 4.4.7 - or, if you're ready to join the rest of the world, PHP 5.2.2.

Symfony Turns One
October 19, 2006 @ 16:21:10

A happy thing happened one year ago today - the PHP community was given the gift of symfony. Today (the 19th) marks the one year birthday of the launch of the symfony website and project.

The website was launched on October 19th, 2005, and it has rapidly gained a tremendous success. The adoption rate of the framework has been incredible since the beginning, and went far beyond our hopes. Today, we read about symfony in the press and on the Internet every day, new websites using it launch in many countries. We read a lot of very positive reviews about the framework but, more important, we read or hear about successful projects using symfony, and these real use cases are a proof that the framework reaches its goals.

Many congrats go out to the entire team over there! Keep up the great work!
