PHP in 2018 (Video)
The creator of PHP, Rasmus Lerdorf, talks about his original intentions for the scripting language and the substantial improvements that have been made since version 7.0.
Rasmus Lerdorf wanted to be able to hand off back-end code to front-end designers that was easier to understand, and thus less likely to be broken. For this reason he created PHP.
Since then, PHP has become very popular, but also used in ways that weren’t originally intended. Recently, a lot of work has been done to improve its speed and memory management.
Watch the video to hear about the history of PHP and its future plans.
