Quote from: "Plu"Or maybe we'll just start with "do you know how to program?"I'm a professional PHP programmer by trade, but I think the language is kinda shitty.At home I mostly program in Lua right now, which is awesome. For something as old at it is, it seems to be able to do a few things that I haven't really seen any other language do. Like multiple return values on functions. Or variable swapping.
Quote from: "Plu"If you want to communicate with web-based APIs consider starting with PHP. It's designed for that kind of thing and it's very relaxed and open which makes it great for new programmers.
Quote from: "Jason78"PHP is an utter pig to use though. It's hardly a language that encourages best practices.
