What I Don’t Like About PHP

A list of things I don’t like about PHP:

  • Inconsistent parameter placement
  • Inconsistent naming (with a variety of using _ as separators, and not using separators at all)
  • No really good command line tool — I know PHP is aimed at the web, but being able to try out simple things in Python and Ruby is really one of the things I like about those languages

Some day I might expand on this list. I might also explain some of the items in greater detail.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
