micodon:PyPy is not the official engine of python, it also don’t have support for some modules.
So most website you see run on actual Python. Even before PHPNG Facebook I think was using another compiler I think
From inception I only said PHP 7 Is very fast. I didn’t compare PHP with any other compiler. You just wanna make it look like PHP is trash
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:12pm On Aug 02|
micodon:From the beginning of the argument didn’t you mention C#, Rust, Scala?
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 9:15pm On Aug 02|
stanliwise:This is my main issue with this thread... you can't call a language fast in relation to itself you kinda have to compare with other languages right.
I understand u love PHP and it works for you...but pleaaase never mentioned php as a trending language in terms of speed scalability, support, documentation....nth in 2020 I really feel it's absurd
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by micodon(m): 9:15pm On Aug 02|
If you said PHP is "very fast", then it's speed should be measured compared with other languages. And when you compare, you find out that PHP is actually slow.
in the real world PHP is slow. That's why Facebook built HHVM. That's why good developer/company would not build any performance critical web app in PHP.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by micodon(m): 9:17pm On Aug 02|
Yes, because they also faster. If PHP as as fast as you said it is, then I should not fear challenge from any language
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 9:20pm On Aug 02|
stanliwise:What language are you planning to adopt for Android? Are there any tools for Android development for php? I really wanna learn u are the first person in my life that I have met that is proud to be a solely PHP developer.. kudos to u bro
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:22pm On Aug 02|
micodon:There is no need to argue further with you. You are just finding ways to condemn PHP. But have this PHP still power 81% of the web. In 30 years time. It ain’t going nowhere.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:27pm On Aug 02|
Bytestream:I have fully completed my Java course and have started Java dev. My first app should be a chess Engine. Probably by next month.
I fell in love with PHP when my mentor thought me and since then I have been coding PHP. Truth is let us drop all the shenanigans.
Most of us don’t code heavy lifting website like Google and the rest. Almost every stuff I have coded has run well.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by micodon(m): 9:27pm On Aug 02|
Thats not the point of this argument. The argument is that you said it's very fast. And I say:NO!!! It's not fast.
This you're argument about it powering about 81℅ of the web holds no water. It's like saying the Corolla is the best car in the world because it's the most commonly used.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:29pm On Aug 02|
micodon:I didn’t say PHP is the best programming language. Please quote the place.
I said PHP 7 is very fast I didn’t compare it.
But PHP is worth all the time in 2020.
Thank you for understanding.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by micodon(m): 9:30pm On Aug 02|
You cannot correctly say something is fast without comparing it
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:32pm On Aug 02|
micodon:Maybe you misunderstood it.
It is twice as fast at it’s counterpart. So are you satisfied now?
Meanwhile anytime you have a web project I see you running back to PHP
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by micodon(m): 9:36pm On Aug 02|
Thats not being fast.
Web project? You didnt go through my github repo? Smh
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:39pm On Aug 02|
micodon:I still code python and C++ till today. They are not my stack, but any job could require it. Meanwhile I currently don’t even code much this days. Since Job hasn’t eaten all my time. Anyone could be asked to code anything.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 9:45pm On Aug 02|
stanliwise:I don't understand why u like picking old languages, maybe dats your thing..buh I expected you to say u where learning flutter or react native...
I do handle websites which are really heavy where u need to spend days working on the file compression algorithms.. although I won't say node is a genius when handling graphics either..I will say node and ror is a goal for anything web development..also I do programming from both sides (functional and oop) in order to work effectively on increasing compression speeds and I really feel PHP doesn't do d job when it comes to high level Enterprise websites
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 9:50pm On Aug 02|
stanliwise:Oya let's not fight... simply remove the 2020 and simply say PHP is worth learning
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 10:00pm On Aug 02|
Bytestream:Mention an example of high level enterprise website you think PHP can't handle. I like to know.
Java is still a complete language for anything anytime. Maybe it is your thing to follow new and modern language but if you must write off old language then write it off on the foundation of it's incapability. If I wanted to learn how to do Cryptocurrency engines and maybe heavy game server I would have chosen maybe Go or Rust, if for game programming I would have gone for C, and C++. But Java is good for my Android journey. One thing I like about language some language like java and PHP is that they have very very large community from old till present moment. That consistency gives me the thrill.

stanliwise:You should learn Kotlin at some point in the future. You'd love Kotlin for its syntactic sugar and nonexistent boilerplates; similar to python.
Java's NPEs are a pain in the ass and the language itself is too verbose. And oh, Kotlin is 100% interoperable with java, uses Java's frameworks and libraries, and is currently Google's most preferred language for Android development. Not to add that it's cross-platform as well.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 7:21am On Aug 03|
Grandlord:stanliwise is an old man...I was still in highschool when he started coding (2011) so old men stick to old languages have it as a rule of thumbs
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 7:31am On Aug 03|
Also am not exactly a web developer par say right now..I do design websites for people...buh I make more money by by writing bi syllabic functional algorithms for machine learning mostly for file compression and data mining..most times dis algorithms are modified to run cross platforms..web, Android , iOS, desktop...I feel u can see all that from my tech stack right.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by stanliwise(m): 9:01pm On Aug 03|
Bytestream:Cool, nice one going for you. I always had plans for going into cryptocurrency but maybe my next life.
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 12:05am On Aug 04|
stanliwise:lol, old man!
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by ANTONINEUTRON(m): 5:15am On Aug 05|
Outside io task NodeJS isn't that fast(it's single threaded).
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Bytestream: 7:24am On Aug 07|
ANTONINEUTRON:It's single threaded fine, there are ways around it. Apart from handling heavy tasks involving graphics..I think everything is pretty straightforward.

Which is the best web framework for Go?
|Re: 8 Reasons To Use Php In 2020 by Xperienx(m): 7:05pm On Sep 17|
But as for me, except I'm working on a quick site for a client that has to be ready in few hours or days depending, I wouldn't wanna write any PHP code in my application
