March 06, 2012 @ 10:24:48

NetTuts.com has posted their own "what you must know" about the recently released (major) upgrade to the PHP language - PHP 5.4.

PHP 5.4 is here; the next major step forward since version 5.3 - keeping PHP 6 (full Unicode support) on hold for now. The latest enhancements significantly improve its elegance, while removing deprecated functionality, resulting in a dramatic optimization of the runtime (up to 20% more speed and memory usage reduction).

They hit all of the highlights:

  • Traits
  • Built-in CLI Web-Server
  • Shorter Array Syntax
  • Array Dereferencing
  • $this In Anonymous Functions
  • <?= is Always On
  • Binary Number Representation
  • Callable Typehint
  • Initialized High Precision Timer

Code examples are provided where relevant.

Jeff Atwood's Blog:
PHP Sucks, But It Doesn't Matter
May 22, 2008 @ 07:57:12

There's an interesting post Jeff Atwood has made to his blog about PHP - its lack of standards, the way the language is structured and why none of that matters when it comes to its popularity.

PHP isn't so much a language as a random collection of arbitrary stuff, a virtual explosion at the keyword and function factory.

He includes links to several other articles that follow the "PHP sucks" train of thought too, but he notes that none of that really matters - its the popularity of PHP, its use in major corporate and social networking applications that is seeming to help drive it even more for developers to pick up and learn as a first web language.

Why fight it? I say learn to embrace it. Join with me, won't you, in celebrating the next fifty years of glorious PHP code driving the internet. Just don't forget to call the maintain_my_will_to_live() PHP function every so often!
