PHP is awesome, sometimes
I quite a job when my employer switched from a Java stack to a PHP environment. I don’t like needles and haystacks. I’m not keen on many aspects of PHP.
However, a developer and entrepreneur I greatly respect often works with PHP. He is a true hacker. Within minutes he is able to whip up a script to perform a small task and show the output on a HTML page. Massaging some JSON, showing a couple of pictures, interacting with an API. You name it.
I stand corrected! PHP does have it’s uses sometimes.
