Ever considered that PHP is an Assembly framework? (For a given definition of ‘framework’)
That might be pushing it a bit though :)
PHP by itself is already a web framework. Maybe a C framework, if we're being cheeky.
But even in that line of reasoning, there are advantages to going lower into the stack. Understanding how C and ASM work will make you a better PHP developer, although with more diminishing returns.
So basically, it's all relative ... which was the point I was trying to make :).
We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
