Here’s a great post on why all those “PHP is dead” blog posts and forum threads are a complete load of crap.
Here’s the reality: nearly 80% of the internet is running on PHP as of 2018.
I guess PHP isn’t that dead after all.
PHP doesn’t scale. Riiiiiight. Wikipedia runs entirely on PHP and is the fifth most visited site on the internet. There’s also this little site called Facebook that uses PHP, ever heard of it?
My favorite quote from that blog post is this one:
PHP is the Fidel Castro of programming languages; after all Castro outlived five US presidents who ordered his assignation.
That’s a nice way to put it …
