For years, I have been waiting to hear Rasmus Lerdorf to share his words and opinions about many things around PHP, especially the security issues, PHP frameworks, future versions, and password hashing. At last, he attended the PHP Frameworks Day 2013 and I was surprised by his thoughts about PHP Frameworks( They were precise and concise assesments).
I am not going to elaborate on what the creator of PHP said during his presentation at the PHP Frameworks Day 2013. The linked video will provide some interesting information about the progress in PHP.
Rasmus Lerdorf expessed his thoughts, opinions and plans.
- Must upgrade from PHP 5.3 to current version.
- Why APC was out of the picture in favor of Zend Opcode Cache?
- Why "All Framework Suck"?
- Frameworks execution of the same code repeatedly. General framework does not apply to all.
- PHP's non-blocking I/O programming support via libevent extension.
- Unicode and JIT for future PHP 7 version.
- Using Go programming language.
Regardless, if you are inexperienced or experienced developer, I think this video is worth watching. The video is more than 40 minutes long.
Please share your thoughts about the video.
