Gonzalo Ayuso has added a new post to his blot today with some of his opinions on namespaces in PHP.
I've been working wih my first project using namespaces in PHP. As a PHP developer I have been suffering the lack of a program language without namespaces for years. But now it's over. Finally we have namespaces in PHP since PHP 5.3. My early impressions wasn't good.
He talks about how, originally, he didn't like the naming conventions for namespaces but eventually he embraced them and realized some of the extra benefits they format gives. He still wonders, though, if they are better than some of the more traditional namespecing methods.
