132: PHP is Ugly
August 6, 2017

So I learned the basics of PHP today. My main takeaway was that it is a very, very ugly language.
I don’t really know what else there is to say about it. But I will try to illustrate.
. A deliberate effort to make human readability less intuitive, I guess?
You have to start variable names with ??? Why.
? ? ? ? Really?
Also, using for concatenation just so you can’t use standard dot notation.
How was all this syntax actually intentionally designed this way?
