PHP is by design a Software "development" tool.
Most other languages are by design Software "programming" tool and their users "the programmers, not the developers" seem not to understand software "development".
PROGRAMMING versus DEVELOPING Software.
Business with strong relational processes that need less mathematical abstractions and wel organisation (such as governance) can better rely on a Software "development" tool.
Business with weak relational processes that need more mathematical abstractions (such as machinery) and less organisation can better rely on a Software "programming" tool.
Don't call yourself software developer if you are writing code to draw 3D things, you are a programmer.
A software "developer" pays much more attention on dependency management and a solution that route to the correct content (or a result-set) delivery. The info.
A software "programmer" pays much more attention on problems solving and a solution that output a correct result. The truth.
Both programming and development languages interact with human user.
However programming languages relying software operate in a limited namespace and respond with similar answer.
While development language relying software operate in wide namespace and adapt to the environmental-intention to respond with different answer for each different interaction.
if the content-delivery software is mapping to a solution for to multi-human-users and has to face them with various answers, then use a software development tool.
if the result-delivery software is processing to a solution for a human or machine and has to face him/her/it with single truth, then use a software programming tool.
Do not hurt yourself by a programming language if your business has to face internet-users. "face....", you've got this :)
Technically, an overlapping circles algorithm is way better than other social tools, but remember! the result on the internet is a big fail, hallo google+.
Smart people waste their life to stupid things too, to envision things better play the game of coincidences.

That's a interesting theoretical insight into the distinction between programing and development. On the other hand, it seems that there is a fundamental lack of understanding of the symbolic and practical use of color in web design.
