Why should I use PHP programming in 2020?
- Your client, and/or the company you got hired in, uses PHP, Zend, WordPress, Drupal, Laravel, Symphony, CodeIgniter, Smarty, etc.
- You need a proven server-side language for rapid development.
- You can’t stand the Node.js and Ruby fanboys.
- Your friend is using Python and you want to finish your project a week earlier.
- Your other friend is on ASP.NET and you don’t mind not keeping the friendship.
- You can’t stand offside-rule syntax and prefer C-like curly braced code.
- You’re not pedantic about dynamic typing and inconsistent functions.
- You love straightforward POST and GET requests.
- You know mixing HTML and programming code is bad, but enjoy the fact that you can do it easily anyway if you wanted to.
- You enjoy just saying that 80%+ of the web is written in your language of choice, especially major sites like Facebook, Wikipedia, and Google (even though they also use other languages, probably even more so).
- You find the story of PHP starting out as a pet project templating language and eventually eclipsing other languages that took themselves far too seriously quite amusing and ironic.
- You’re a contrarian and love using a language that everyone hates.
- You don’t care too much about developer surveys and Quora questions like these written by fanboys (see #3) who love to hate on PHP.
- You’re a two-faced sociopath and claim to hate PHP, but use it anyway and a lot behind closed doors.
- You’re a cool developer, and know what PHP is good for and use it for those cases, but also know enough to use other languages when needed as well, like a really chill and cool developer.
