re: Why some people hate PHP? VIEW POST


I agree with others here that people are really good at finding reasons to justify why we do the things we do (even if they are mostly arbitrary).

That being said, if you are interested in an in-depth criticism, Google turned up this one which seems pretty comprehensive: PHP: a fractal of bad design.


The article you linked was written in 2012. Some points are still true, but currently the core is waaaaay better, more consistent and predictable. Still, for backward compatibility, some inconsistencies remain.
