The guy who created PHP (Rasmus Lerdorf) appears to have reached some higher level of coder enlightenment

@flancian Haha, I told him once at the speaker dinner of a conference we were both at that PHP was a lifesaver for me back in 1993 or so as it meant I didn’t have to write my CGI scripts in C anymore (or use Coldfusion) but that I didn’t really enjoy using it today as there are much more expressive and consistent options and he replied along the lines of “I never write PHP, I code in C.”

Which made sense :P

(PHP is written in C.)

@flancian "We have all this stuff that your computer science teacher told you you should be using. I don't care about this crap at all"

100% Agreed.

@flancian That's why it was shit for anything but basic templating when it started and it took 10 years to fix it
