    You're seriously worried about the health of php?

    If a chat app should be worth that money it's slack. Rocketchat is word a try too

    The price is more for what is communicated with the app than the app itself...

    @Oktokolo understood. More of a testimony that world class software today’s still written with php.

    @rooter not worried at all. But the language is shit on regularly for reasons most don’t even understand as their throwing dirt. It’s due for praise especially with 8

    What are your thoughts on Salesforce owning slack?
    I can't see that it fits well together with salesforce products?

    @heyheni I’ve worked for third party salesforce companies for 4 years now and my understanding is salesforce embraces a suite of world class software through third party services. They don’t care too much about making data entry easy, quick or intuitive but you can pay my company or another a lot to give you a gmail/office side panel for dumping contacts and syncing data to SF. Slack will prob undergo a lot of integration with salesforce but I don’t foresee it changing in the way we use it. One things for certain and that’s salesforce is on track to be unstoppable as of it isn’t already. We use the word “sticky” to refer to software that makes it hard to get rid of. Sf is giving companies another reason to get on board and another reason not to leave

    Then now is the time for them to fix their Android app so that notification actually come through reliably, not just occasionally.
    Though I believe PHP is not at fault there...

    @dUcKtYpEd I didn't really think this needed an explanation; it's not especially subtle. The intimation is that something may be widespread and getting a lot of attention, and still be regarded as undesirable, or even harmful. I can helpfully explain other sarcastic quips, should the need arise.

    Look I'm wearing a PHP shirt. I miss coding in PHP. Now I usually code in JS and Java.

    @halfflat dude someone could go write a perfectly stable, secure and proficient web application in assembly if they had the know how. Languages are as proficient and as a safe as you make them. What your referring to is the amount of hand holding that is offered out of the box. If you want coddled, hop on the .net bandwagon.

    @dUcKtYpEd I'm working in a big company and they don't use PHP there. Sad.
