re: Hating on languages you don't use VIEW POST


Well, I can understand the hate of PHP prior to version 7. But now we have strict type declaration, fast interpretation, PSR and a lot of cool things that make programming PHP experience far more clean and powerful.

I just guess that hate is also linked to the nowadays hype.

IMO you don't have to hate a programming language, because they are like tools, all great at something specific, also some of them evolve in a cool way. But you can definitely hate the way they are used.


And we have frameworks. When I started Laravel, it was like a new start. 4 in years and it's still awesome to crank out new projects with tests, dependency injection, middlewares, nice orm. Feels like pure magic! PHP itself is just a small, small part of it, it's the architecture you build on that makes it awesome.
