PHP Insanity VI

Mark Mzyk | March 21, 2008

Today’s quote comes from CoffeeGhost.net:

PHP is simple to set up for web apps and easy to learn. Nearly all web hosts support it and there are many easy to install applications (like, for example, WordPress). But it has a lot of quirks and inconsistencies (too long to go into here) that it doesn’t need to have. These weren’t design trade-offs, they were just the result of poor planning. Hence the need for programming language theory.

This quote appears as part of a longer article that is a great read on the reasons you should and shouldn’t criticize a language.
