age(PHP) = 10 years

» 07 June 2005 » In PHP »

PHP is 10 years old. It’s a big kid now, and it’s been a large part of my professional life ever since December of 1998 when I submitted bug #870 asking for a new language construct and then offered to help make PHP run better on Windows. Many words have been and will be written about this anniversary, but I would simply like to thank Rasmus for his friendship and for creating and nurturing PHP, and also his wife Christine for supporting Rasmus’ efforts throughout the years. May the next decade be ever more fun.

    I couldn’t resist when I saw the subject…

    // I wish everything was an object
    $php = “Cool programming language created by Rasmus”;
    $php->getAge();

    $jackson->sendBirthdayWishes($php);
