Oracle laying off its Java evangelists? Er, no comment, says Oracle


Re: About Time


Spot on there, I agree with your thoughts on frameworks.

However your sentiment towards PHP heading down a similar road to Java im not so sure about.

I am excited about PHP7 and the vast performance improvements it brings and ive recently discovered HHVM for bringing down RAM and CPU usage. Its suprisingly awesome. Though I suspect it will be overtaken by PHP7 in the performance stakes...not so sure on the resource usage stakes though.

The thing that sucks about PHP is it is seen as a modern day "Visual Basic" level language to some devs (Java and Ruby devs usually)...ive no idea why though.
