Discussion on: What's the deal with downing PHP development?

I don't really think most devs dislike beginners, but I could be wrong.

I honestly just think it's an outdated (but well-earned) reputation from when PHP was a messy procedural language being reinforced by all the bad code in the wild. And also it's "cool" to hate on PHP.

Many devs seem to dislike non English speakers, including a lot of php devs. As long as php is used heavily by the rest of the world, even after their code quality improves, people will hate on them and their chosen language.
