Discussion on: Why bashing PHP makes you look stupid

Actually in past few years, It is almost as good a programming language as Java or c#. It was a template language in php 5 days, but now it actually feels like a proper programming language.

I contracted for a company last year which had a barebone custom framework actively maintained ( they upgraded 7.3 to 7.4 while we were working. ). Their CTO was experienced Java Architect, so our coding style, Module organization, OOP implementation etc were all inspired by Java. It was surprising even for me. He taught us all a lot about structuring code.

This year, I am working with PHP 8.0 API, Kotlin and VueJS. So far I am loving the stack. It is much better than my spring-mvc days.
