PHP-A-Day Blog:
Commentary Why Do People Hate PHP?
June 01, 2012 @ 08:49:16

On the PHP-Tip-A-Day site today Greg Bulmash shares some of his thoughts about why people hate PHP.

I recently read Kevin Schroeder's blog post about 10 Reasons To Use PHP. Then -- silly me -- I started reading the comments. It only took a few before the obligatory anti-PHP hater came out and started insulting the language and the people who use it. That made me think about why that hate exists.

He points out that some of it probably has to do with people not really understanding what PHP is all about (no, reading a blog post dosen't make you an expert on it) and mentions PHP's dynamic typing as a sticking point with several developers.

Usually someone hating on PHP does so because they don't understand it, are upset by what it lets people get away with, feel it makes it too easy for someone to earn the title of "developer," or because they're dicks who have to insult other people because they can't simply be happy with their own choices.

Ruzz on Symfony:
What is this all about?
May 31, 2006 @ 05:43:02

Ruzz has started up a new blog over off of Lifelogger.com that looks to take a more in-depth look at one of the more popular PHP-based frameworks offered today, symfony.

What's the deal? The deal is these two wacky french guys wrote a really kickass framework for php and I've been using it for a couple months and want to share that experience with others in the hope they too will find the same positive results i have.

In this first post, specifically, he talks about his opinions on why symfony is worth the trouble, who he is to talk about it, and what kind of things you can expect from the blog in the future. He's also providing a running report of something he's calling the "symfony challenge" - a commentary of his complete rewrite of an application he previously wrote with a framework of his own making.

The idea is to get the site to have near exact functionality and measure the time savings and benifits of using symfony.
