I agree @Casey Brooks. PHP was the absolute first language that came to mind for me as well. I'm not a PHP fan-boy by any means. When I first used PHP I was like "Erm-a-god this is so horrible!" But by the time I finished the project I was like "Oh, I really like PHP, who knew?".
PHP, despite all its oddities and pain points, works... It absolutely works. And that is pretty much what matters.
And that is what I like about PHP. People are like-
"Hey PHP, the way you did was not intuitive. There are sooooo many better ways you could have done that. What kind of stupid idiotic decision was that!?"
And PHP responds-
"Did it work?"

We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
