    @rooter The amount of noobs writing shitty modules for various CMS and the amount of shitty PHP devs in general is outstanding. JavaScript is a very similar story (or at least was). I think it is mostly because these languages don't require any *actual* skill when compared to C++ or Rust.

    @lamka02sk I wanted to disagree but I couldn't. It's true. But don't let it affect you. But if you're in the cms world, well, i always avoided it :) I also prefer the small frameworks because bigger ones feel like a cage. Imagine working on a cms

    @lamka02sk as someone who writes JS/TS for living, I totally agree with you for the whole JS situation.

    @rooter Same here, working with CMS is terrible, I only work on custom solutions for some time now and it is definitely better.

    "So I have to fit this in here, because it bears repeating: PHP is a community of amateurs. Very few people designing it, working on it, or writing code in it seem to know what they’re doing. (Oh, dear reader, you are of course a rare exception!) Those who do grow a clue tend to drift away to other platforms, reducing the average competence of the whole. This, right here, is the biggest problem with PHP: it is absolutely the blind leading the blind." - https://eev.ee/blog/2012/...

    Couldn't agree with you more. I hate it when I tell other programmers I usually work in PHP, just because they might think less of me. (Even with a CS degree from a university).

    Personally I think PHP as a language has grown a lot in the past few years, if you compare it to PHP4. What I'm still missing are generics. From a design point of view, without generics some structures are difficult to set up without breaking SOLID. In the end, you usually end up doing runtime time validations.
