If I had a nickel for every time I heard “PHP is dead” I'd be rich! Warrick Bayman seems just as frustrated:
“It isn’t dying and it isn’t reaching ‘end-of-life.' That’s it. No matter how much some people want it to go away, it isn’t going away. At least, not for a long time.”
It's a rant type of post but a reassuring one.
I'd say that with the recent release of PHP 8, things are getting even more interesting with the language, and there is no evidence that it's slowing down. 👨💻
