Why PHP Sucks by IamGodzilla: 7:38pm On Aug 09, 2015
Most developers in Nigeria are stuck on Php either because they are afraid to learn a new programming language or they aren't updated technically.
But PHP isn't all that cool.

But if you would be willing to switch to a different language like Javascript and it's frameworks such as NodeJs, ExpressJs for server side and AngularJs for frontend or any other programming language like python with Flask or Django.
Feel free to stop by here http://nowwehere.io, learn smart and write quality codes.

new language called javacript shocked

one of those two words would be bad enough to be used together with javascript, but to use the two together is nothing short of outright blasphemy

You read an article by someone who doesn't know jack about PHP and you come here to rant.

May I ask you: what's the difference between PHP's syntax for tenary operations and JavaScript's??

Mtchew!!!!!

JavaScript compared with A server side script? undecided, maybe he just read an article on getting started with NodeJs (Written in‎: ‎C & C++)..
But I still think He's High On Meth.

It is downright disappointing that most of you are shortsighted and cannot see beyond Nigeria's present. In case y'all don't know, developers in advanced countries have moved on from PHP and WordPress to Python and Django, Ruby on Rails, The MeanStack. And for those that are currently laughing at the JavaScript thingy, I suggest you start by taking a course in NodeJS, cos whether you like it or not, it is now and the future.

It is appalling to think that many of you don't even know that there's a server-side platform written with JavaScript... SMH (Notice that that is in caps... for emphasis sake). I suggest that before you make stupid comments in the near future, you would do well by doing a little research.

Spend more time learning to code and less time trying to prove your language of choice is better than another one. You want to show you have/use the best language? Write one. Until then, return false.

Dude, they are laughing because he said Javascript is NEW. JS is fu**ing old.
Secondly, he said JavaSCRIPT is a language

And from what I heard about NodeJS, it's not written with JS, it's written with C. But NodeJs apps are created with JS.

1. Dear Linus Trovalds, NodeJs wasnt written in JavaScript. it was written in C.
2. PHP still powers a great majority of the web.
3. Nodes is not the first server side JavaScript stack.
4. People are moving from JavaScript to Golang and Scala
5. Comparing Nodejs to PHP is like comparing Apples to Oranges. (Node is an environment. PHP is a language).
6. Return false from this your callback hell

A very nice Topic presented in a very wrong way.

Part of Building Scalable Web Apps Today involves building your app to consume an API. I would recommend building the API with NodeJS(Javascript) over PHP because of the speed and the asynchronous nature.

That aside PHP is really a very good language. Using a Framework like Laravel would help you appreciate , more , the beauty of PHP.

Yes !!!... Node is a very strong, fast, and powerful cross-platform runtime environment for server-side and networking applications using JAVASCRIPT....

While I'm not advising moving websites to us Node, I'd advise using Node to build your NEXT.....Web application.. wink
