PHP Expert check: 25th Anniversary of PHP

The PHP programming language was released in 1995, meaning it’s celebrating a quarter of a century in 2020. To mark the occasion, we asked four PHP experts and International PHP Conference 2019/2020 speakers what role PHP plays for them today. According to many statistics PHP is on the way down – but our experts disagree.

PHP: stronger than you think!

The hullabaloo against WordPress Gutenberg editor blocks being made of JavaScript and not PHP made everyone think “Is the reign of PHP over?” Well, No! At Least that is what the statistics say. W3Techs ran a report that suggests “PHP is used by 79% of all the websites with a known server-side programming language”. That is 8/10 website that you know! So, our guess is PHP is here to stay.

Managing development tools elegantly

That is the place you inevitably end up in if you pack the tools in the require-dev area of composer.json instead. There is however a way to not only solve this issue more elegantly, but also save storage space in your own version control system.

PHP 5.x and PHP 7.x Security in Focus!

Since the end of 2018, PHP 5.x is no longer being supported. This means in particular that any vulnerability discovered since the beginning of January 2019 is and will remain a zero-day vulnerability - meaning there will be no patch for it. But what can we say about the security of PHP 7.x as compared to PHP 5.x?

PHP functional: Elegantly get to your destination!

Functional programming is trending now. Many programming languages now provide good support for developing code functionally. PHP also contains mechanisms for functional programming. Unfortunately, other paradigms, such as good legibility or good understanding of the code, often get lost along the way; but it doesn’t have to be that way!
