Discussion on: Imposter Syndrome: PHP Edition

I like it how people say that php evolved and look at symfony. Hello, symfony is a web framework, you dont say that java evolved because look at latest spring. Sad fact that there is no php as a language with opinion or coherent concepts behind it, no usable stl and no evolution. This is why comic strip about php is legit. But to understand that one has to exit php-comfort zone and try out other languages (plain, no frameworks) to understand the difference

PS and its interesting that people write how symfony promotes good practices when in fact it does completely opposite - hook everything to internal events, any bundle can set a global listener, whole idea of bundles, promoted for a long time and finally considered a bad idea by creators themselves, validator component etc.
