Is PHP Dead?

Critics have been saying PHP was dead for years now.

But, here it is… still tickin’ away… picking up market share and powering the web. Matter of fact, one of the harshest criticisms I’ve seen on PHP… comes from a WordPress blog. Ya know, built on PHP.

But, with the rise of frameworks like NodeJS and the resurgence of Python…

Has PHP seen its last days?

Should you invest time learning it?

Or, will it be obsolete in 5 years?

I tackle that in today’s podcast. Give it a listen

Plus, I snuck in a damn good “treatise” on freelancing. Worth listen in my totally bias but humble opinion.

If you get value, be sure to like it and also share it with the developers you know so we can reach as many as possible and help them to make their IT career dream come true, as well.

And, get access to all the perks mentioned in the show as a supporting listener on Patreon: http://johnmorrisonline.com/patreon.

Or enroll in my new PHP 101 video course and get the exclusive interview I did with Mike P.

P.S. If you liked the show, give it a like and share with the communities and people you think will benefit. And, you can always find all my tutorials, source code and exclusive courses on Patreon.
