re: Should I drop PHP? VIEW POST


If it's a big project then use a technology you are familiar with IF that technology is suited for the project.

If you check w3techs stats you'll notice that 79% of websites use PHP. A good example is WordPress which is one if not the most used website builder uses PHP under the hood.

We use PHP at work with YII2 framework and have built applications supporting heavy loading and usage by many users.

If you want to use python/flask I'd recommend doing it on a small project until you've gotten a hand on the learning curve.

One of the good sides of PHP on my end is that most PHP frameworks come with front-end and back-end ready solutions with for some code generators to kick-start basic work. This can be very useful to get all the little and basic stuff done on big projects.
