@traq Thanks for that explanation.


PHP is just what I started learning because of the WordPress hype when I first started out. But in reality, I wasn’t truly learning, I was memorizing things. Only until I started building my own stuff did I learn. PHP is still quite new to me, I’m nowhere near @traq’s level. I started watching these Harvard lectures on Youtube that helped me learn and comprehend sessions and a few other things about security which was related to my project. I’m not really familiar with Python so I can’t really speak about it but I’m sure there are advantages/disadvantages to each. I’m going to take a look at that “PHP The Right Way” link. Might help a great deal.

Anyway, I recently started researching HHVM and I hope to use it soon.
