Only one?

  1. PHP is not such a bad tool once you've gotten to know it. Certainly no worse than Ruby.
  2. Stack Overflow is a net-negative for software quality, and I blame the site's love of gamification.
  3. Tech hiring is too strongly focused on years of experience with a set of languages/technologies. If you hire strong C programmers, they can pick up any other language, because they understand the basics.

Yeah, I have those unpopular opinions too.

I do like stack overflow but there is a lot of bad code on there.

When it was a newer site it was great to give a good answer to a problem but most problems are solved now with bad solutions.
