Discussion on: Why developers hate PHP

Love your post. My experiences with many languages made me realize that it’s not necessarily the language that I dislike, it’s the context that it’s in. For example, I dislike PHP when it’s in Wordpress, but love it when I’m in Laravel.

I dislike c# when it’s in old MVC Microsoft frameworks, or even webforms (ew). But love it when it’s in dot net core.

I wonder if this is what most developers mean when they say they hate X language. Is it really the language? Or the context that you’re developing with the language? Maybe it’s a little of both. Idk. My 2 cents :)
