    I hate most languages and yet php isn’t one of them strange enough. If I had to use it more than twice a year maybe I would hate it?

    They hate PHP because they’re crappy programmers. Everyone shuld use language of his own choice, and not because it’s „trendy”. And most of people mistakenly thinks, that PHP is a web language only.

    - it’s simple to learn
    - it’s simple to deploy
    - it’s simple to maintain
    - you can be up and running with a script quicker then you can load VIsual Studio.

    - it was never designed to be a full blown language, but then neither was JS and here we are many years later.

    - it doesn’t enforce anything out of the box (design pricinples, methodologies, MVC/OOP, functional)
    - it doesn’t have strict types (this is handy though)

    - global constants don’t need to exist to be callable in some situations (case sensitive and fall back to strings)
    Eg :

    Define(“HELP”, ”help”);
    if( HELp == “help” ){
    //this works

    - it won’t hold you’re hand and tell you how to fix it

    - although being simple to learn, knowing all the cliff hangers and knowing how to avoid them is no easy task

    - new devs pick it up and make an exceptional mess of things
    - this leads to the misunderstanding of it being a horrible language.
