Jonnay's Blog:
PHP vs. Javascript A shit vs. poo fight.
October 13, 2006 @ 07:38:00

Responding to this commentary from the SitePoint PHP Blog the other day, Jonnay has come up with some of his own thoughts on each of the topics mentioned.

Apparently there was some kind of PHP vs. Javascript fight, to see which language sucked the most. The results? Amazingly Banal, if not downright wrong.

Topics in each round of the fight included:

  • Syntax
  • Standard Libraries
  • Meta Programming
  • Error Handling
  • Garbage Collection
Jonnay comes back with his (differing) perspectives on a few of the items - syntax, scope/namespaces/packaging, meta programming, AOP, and an overall commentary in which he reminds readers that defending either side isn't easy when the voting audience might not fully understand one language or the other.
