Anthony Ferrara's Blog:
The True Problem With PHP
July 06, 2012 @ 13:21:58

In response to some of the "problem with PHP" posts that have been circulating lately, Anthony Ferrara has posted about the "true problem" with PHP - less about the language, more about the community.

The core of the PHP community is filled with a lot of really talented and smart developers doing some really amazing things. But on the fringes, there are a lot of people who are writing articles, tutorials, and posts designed to help beginners learn the language (and usually how to program). The problem with this is that the majority of those authors frankly don't have a clue what they are talking about.

He talks about why this is a problem (bad practices promoted, bad code) and what you, as a PHP developer, can do about it...and maybe help in creating a separate tutorials site with content "approved" to provide good practices and quality code.
