The Codist Blog:
Followup To I Will Never Understand the Appeal Of PHP
December 14, 2006 @ 07:11:32

A few days back there was a post on the "The Codist" blog about why the author would never quite understand the appeal of PHP to the masses and some of his thoughts behind it. Well, there was such an outcry and response to his comments that he's written up another post on what he learned from comments made.

Clearly I touched a nerve. However I did learn a lot of things that you don't read in a quickly tutorial on PHP. The whole point of writing something is to get feedback, positive or negative, and hopefully learn from it.

He admits that his experience with PHP and its developers has been limited, so his perspective might have been thrown off a bit. He still holds to one thing from the previous article, though - that PHP just isn't for him.

Marcus Whitney's Blog:
The PHP Argument
February 22, 2006 @ 06:45:17

Marcus Whitney has chimed in on Tim Bray's comments about PHP in his latest blog post.

PHP has arrived. Tim Bray posted on PHP and it's got the web all hot and heavy. I know that plenty of people like to take these opportunities to flex their blog muscles and tell off all the other languages, proclaim their programming expertise and explain why all those using certain languages are dumb as hell. Greg Beaver has already done a good job of pointing out why this is a waste of time so I wont repeat what he said.

So in short, here's the deal. PHP is getting hated on because she is the prom queen. Rails in the new contender, and Java is last year's hot stuff. All three are valuable languages that provide many an over-paid programmer with the tools needed to wow their co-workers. Pick your weapon and go to town.

He's basically of the same concensus that others stated - it's not about how good one language is overall, it's about what works for you in the situation you're in. It's almost impossible to find a langauge out there that's a perfect fit fo everything.
