In this article, I'd jump at the chance to audit a bunch of the issues that individuals had with PHP previously, and give a look at why 2013 just might be the time of PHP!

Why the Hostility?

This may come as an amazement to you, however numerous individuals have negative sentiments toward PHP designers, and the dialect all in all. You likely know precisely what I mean, on the off chance that you've considered learning Ruby in the recent years, because of some feeling of companion weight.

The Beginners

There are the apprentices, who don't generally know how PHP functions. This outcomes in questions, similar to "For what reason wouldn't you be able to tune in for catch occasions with PHP?," and comparative inquiries concerning AJAX.

One Language to Rule Them All

Next, you have the people who don't think about other dialect or structure than the one that they as of now utilize. These are the sorts of individuals who make contentions, for example, "Rails is significantly less demanding then PHP," and things like that.

Battling PHP 4

The third type of misguided judgment originates from the general population who haven't stayed aware of PHP's advances throughout the years. Rather, regardless they're battling the dialect, as it existed forever and a day back. This outcomes in articulations, as: "PHP isn't question situated" or "PHP sucks since it doesn't bolster name spacing." You get the thought.


Finally, we have the more insightful designers who trust that "PHP can't scale" or "PHP has no gauges," which is totally false. Scaling has less to do with the dialect, and more with the server and how your application is organized. With respect to benchmarks? Indeed, it just takes a brisk Google look for PHP-FIG.

What is the PHP-FIG? "The thought behind the gathering is for venture agents to discuss the shared traits between our activities and discover ways we can cooperate.

PHP Isn't Perfect

There's fact in each feedback, be that as it may. PHP isn't great. With regards to its execution of center highlights and capacities, PHP is conflicting. These contentions are altogether legitimate.

These irregularities are not without reason, however. PHP began as what we would allude to today as a templating dialect. From that point forward, it has experienced numerous changes in perspective, changing into an utilitarian dialect, similar to C, and afterward to the completely OOP dialect that we appreciate today. En route, best practices have developed, and diverse individuals have been responsible for what is included. This outcomes in a considerable measure of "various" sorts of code in one dialect.

The Present

Presently with the past secured, we should climb to the present. There are a bunch of extremely cool tasks and developments, some of which get thoughts from different dialects, keeping in mind the end goal to push PHP to the following level.

How about we think about the accompanying:

• Composer

• Laravel

• Test Driven Development

• PHP 5.4/5.5


The PHP people group would now be able to quit rethinking the wheel again and again, because of Composer.

Roused by devices, as Bundler and NPM, the PHP people group would now be able to quit reexamining the wheel again and again, because of Composer. Node.js was the principal dialect that influenced me to feel great with utilizing bundles. On the off chance that you've utilized it previously, at that point you realize what I mean. Bundles are introduced locally to your undertaking's index, it's anything but difficult to discover documentation for the vast majority of the modules, and it's generally easy to present your own particular bundles.


PHP offered an option for a considerable length of time, PEAR, however it wasn't excessively instinctive or simple to utilize. It felt cumbersome for something that at last brought plain-content records. Further, it introduced all bundles all inclusive. This constrained you to educate individuals which bundles you utilized while circulating your source code. As you may figure, this brought about mis-coordinated renditions, and different things of that nature.


Regardless of whether you do have issues with a portion of PHP's irregularities, Laravel abstracts almost every last bit of it.

Presently this wouldn't be an article about PHP's future without talking about Laravel in greater detail. We're frequently inquired as to why Nettuts+ is by all accounts pushing Laravel as much as it has been. This is the wrong inquiry. Rather, ask "For what reason not?"

PHP 5.4/5.5

The following thing that I'd get a kick out of the chance to talk about is the updates to PHP that were discharged in 2012. With the arrival of variant 5.4 came a plenty of superb new highlights. For a full outline of the updates, you can investigate these two articles here on Nettuts+: 5.4 article, 5.5 article.

However, for a speedy recap of my top choices:


• Traits add the capacity to make Class "partials," which enables you to make steady protests without re-composing everything again and again.


• Generators let you do some cool things with arrangements of information, and also enable you to profit by every one of the highlights that accompany sluggish assessment.

CLI Web Server

• Another extraordinary expansion is the worked in web server, which enables you to test your applications with various forms of PHP, without the requirement for something like Apache.

Test Driven Development

Finally, let's talk a bit about testing your code. While admittedly a bit late to the game, in 2012, our community saw widespread adoption of the test driven development methodology. I could make up a growth percentage, but I feel that a better indication of truth is to simply looking around on different dev sites and forums.
It's an exciting time to be a PHP developer. Many of the inherent problems have or are being fixed. AS for the other issues, we'll those are easily remedied with a good framework and testing.
