Nick Halstead's Blog:
Open source Scaling Ruby on Rails vs PHP
April 20, 2007 @ 07:05:00

On his "What I accidently learnt about programming" blog today, Nick Halstead shares some of his thoughts on Open Source scaling functionality in languages, specifically comparing Ruby and PHP.

Compared to the current problems Rails is facing PHP is proving itself within a very wide range of sectors including the commercial sector. And although PHP in its raw state is slower to develop for and more prone to having BAD code written for it. The guys at Zend (and the open source community) are doing a great job at building a framework that is making developed quicker and enforces better code practices.

He talks about the advantage of using a framework and how, because PHP is such a flexible, open language, it's easy to go "under the hood" and mess with things a bit. This is all in the scope of the issues that Rails is having and how it's a bit more difficult to make things custom to what you need.
