PHP Roundtable:
053: Why I'm Afraid To Admit I Use PHP
Sep 07, 2016 @ 09:56:36

The PHP Roundtable podcast (videocast) has posted their latest episode: Episode #53: Why I'm Afraid to Admin to Using PHP. In this show host Sammy Powers is joined by Evert Pot and Davey Shafik.

So you spend most of your time programming in PHP. You meet another programmer out in the wild. You begin explaining what you do. Do you find yourself using vague terms and actively trying to avoid the word "PHP?" Do you dread the question, "What language do you primarily code in?" Do you anticipate them scoffing at you when you say, "PHP?"

We discuss why PHP has such a bad rep in the eyes of many and why some of us feel the need to start conversations with, "I use PHP but let me explain..."

You can catch this latest episode either using the in-page video or audio player or directly on YouTube. Be sure to check out the extensive show notes for this one too - plenty of good information there.
