Zend has published the results of their "Developer Pulse" survey for 2012 - the product of a survey of over three thousand developers across the PHP community.
The summer 2012 edition of the Zend Developer Pulse™ survey shows that PHP is gaining prominence as a cloud application development language of choice. The combination of speed and ease of use enables developers to build and deploy PHP-based cloud applications quickly: more than half the developers surveyed indicated that the apps they are developing today are destined to be deployed in cloud environments.
