re: Is PHP relevant? VIEW POST


PHP is not dead. Neither are COBOL, Pascal or Fortran. But that doesn't mean PHP is the right choice. For instance, I see no advantage PHP has over Go (except that it's been around much longer). Go is much simpler to learn, doesn't have any WTF moments, runs circles around PHP, can be used to build literally anything that Python can boast of, and ironically, is easier to deploy (just a binary!). Mind you, I'm a PHP developer myself, but I have no shame in admitting that it deserves no place today. Business inertia is the only reason it lives on.
