From reading devlopment forums, boards and reddit you see alot of jokes poked at PHP and many people talking it down. My gist was because it was a noob language or that people who code in PHP hack it together and its messy.
PHP is the most used serverside language, now thats saying its highly useful and usable isnt it?! Which makes it popular. I know PHP to some extent and learnt it within a year on and off, its quiet easy to get into. I know how to get and put with mysql, work with api’s and display data in many ways this isnt too hard i believe.
From this thread reasons such as: Poor documentation, messy code and the noob coders gets floated. These are all valid respsonses. But there is not one single popular reason….
Is PHP sucks a myth?
Its like a magical myth past around from dev to dev: “php sucks man”. The horrible documentation isnt valid anymore, the documentation is fine. All code can be messy depending on the task and knowledge of the coder and most languages will have noobs coding. Maybe the fact that PHP has so many noobs should be a credit to how accessable PHP is to begin with.

As someone who likes to muck around with PHP do i care that it is hated or looked down on by developers? Nope. If its not broke dont fix it, if you know PHP and can achieve something in it, stick with it.
