I'm sure more than 50% of the Devs who claim to hate PHP either don't use it, or only claim to hate it because, well, you know... it's the Dev way.

    Don't know why all the hate. The backed I wrote in PHP is still running after 8 years without a single glitch. Plenty of errors, but PHP gives no fucks about those and despite the errors the result has been 99% flawless. OK it's a simple api for a simple Android reporting system, but still. That server is closing in on 3000 days online time.

    PHP works for the things it was intended.

    "Plenty of errors but php gives not fucks about those" is kind of why I'm swaying away from it. More complex it gets harder it is to debug. That's my 2 cents anyway.

    Well he probably ment me and is quite right. I really know shit about php. I am just amazed that something that I hacked together with it with 0 skill still works and provides results =D Stated just a personal opinion.

    Why would I be talking out my ass? An odd passive aggressive comment to make on an observation.

    You knew I'll come...
    Some devs just spent a lot of time fixing, patching and integrated third party systems. And when it's in PHP you ask double check.
    I did a lot of php after doing Assembly, Java, Client side and Python.
    Now I do Python, Go and other stuff.
    Every time I look at PHP code I think is it me or this language is just a piece of shit... After years of development I know that I am ok...

    Oh I'm sorry, I thought it would be fairly obvious that I wasn't backing up and I was making a wild stab in the dark.

    I apologise that it made you feel like you had to respond in such a way.

    @Letmecode erm... okay then! Wasn't sure I was criticising anyone specific, if you have you're reasons fair enough, but if the glove fits yadda yadda
