So frequently I hear a tedious conversation between my colleagues, “PHP is better than foo”, “.NET is better than boo” etc. etc. Each time I hear this sort of dialog I try to ask the reasons of this comparison but till now, no one has given a proper answer since somehow it’s impossible.
I’d like to point it that obviously, the programming environment is not the only parameter to have a robust application. The most major parameter to have a good result, is the knowledge of programmers, not the facilities of programming languages. I don’t use more than 50% of programming languages features in the progress of development, and I bet no one else will either.
As time passed by, old-fashioned programming languages get retired and new technologies come into the battlefield. Consequently, it’s not a value to know a programming language well, it would be better if you know the concepts.
DISCLAIMER: Above writing is my thoughts and obviously you don’t have to be agreed with necessarily.
