I started working in PHP just because it was fun to write code and see results imidietly. It was fun, then.
Now, after 10 years of working as PHP programmer, I found out, thanks to coding in PHP:
I don't communicate through non-verbal communications
(wanted to find out what I do bad, I found out that I don't do anything bad - people didn't told me they don't know shit or that they fucked up their job )
I have low amount of short term memory, compared to huge long term
(wanted to find out what is wrong with me, I found exactly what my pros and cons are)
PHP has big and useless syntax - form over content - which is bad for people like me, but is also fucking bloted
(wanted to find out how to overcome my problems, so I understood the problem)
$ is fucking bad for people like me (as above)
you have: quality, speed and cheap price and can choose 2 of those. PHP has already choosen for you: speed and cheap price. Quality is a unicorn.
companies using PHP are sociopathic in nature, full of sociopath and psychopaths who sell shit as fast as they can and will treat you as a fucking slave. most of them are just smoke and mirrors bangladeshee style coding sweatshops.
(wanted to know in what the fuck environment I am after I meet the same sociopath twice, on the same position, in a similar company as first time I meet him, in a company that ended up as the last one - broke, because that sociopath overbuild apps.)
oh, and I learned how to distinguish between a psychopath and a sociopath thanks to PHP
There is no PHP the right way - the right way is to kill that fucking language.
Yes, I found things, but it was fucking painfull.
