  • Stuart on PHP - » Missing: The Business Case For PHP
    Forming such a group will help with both credibility and media awareness and help us to provide a united front to influence the large companies that we all want to sell our software into Best regards Stu Clay Loveless says January 18th 2007 at 5 24 pm Stu I would venture that such a resource published by Zend directly would be construed by some or many as a biased account of why Better for this to be a community driven resource with testimonials from people using PHP in enterprise environments The key to its success is the right group of people driving it must be designed to appeal to a corporate audience must be well written etc One thing that concerns me about PHP in general and perhaps this is because I m so close to it but combination of the childlike attitudes and abrasive support responses that permeate much of the upper eschelon of the PHP core development community ultimately serve to hurt the language Any enterprise analyzing languages without a bias who takes a look at the PHP core community is likely to be put off by the attitude problems and politics Same goes for PEAR in my opinion for what it s worth You don t hear about knock down drag out tantrums on the NET development team very often I applaud the effort and hope that something useful comes out of it As a champion of PHP use in two high traffic production environments Feedster com and now Mashery com I d be happy to contribute if I can Stu says January 18th 2007 at 5 35 pm Hi Clay I can understand the concern some folks might have in the community about Zend being involved in this but certainly over here in the UK there s just no getting away from the fact that Zend is the brand that larger organisations have heard of A resource like this will ultimately fail if it s not considered credible by the larger business community I couldn t agree more with you on your points about how the core PHP community comes across to those outside it But equally when you re selling a complete product into a company they often aren t aware of the core PHP community and aren t interested in finding out Best regards Stu Ivo Jansch says January 18th 2007 at 9 35 pm I agree with stu businesses and the enterprise would better accept this coming from a company It s how Red Hat made Linux popular in the corporate world Raymond Olavides says January 20th 2007 at 11 48 am Why not have this kind of initiative come from both worlds From a company s perspective and from a developer community s point of view Maybe the problem with this is that most PHP developers think so lowly of themselves and wouldn t stand up for their ground afaik the corporate world or the enterprise cares less about which technology language is being used as long as it gets the job done and does it well Two of the few factors I ve come across with that affects this business decision are legacy app support and I T Heads who are fanatic to the language they ve learned Developers from other languages are not being restricted to be a bit of masochist and fanatic to the their PL why not allow PHP Developers to be so I believe there are a handful of great fanatic PHP Dev around who can provide this resource for the community Some of the challenge with this though is how to prevent bashings and PL Wars This will also lift and encourage new developers to take PHP and evangelize it I believe it does not matter wherever this will come from this ll serve as a seed for the future of PHP and its developers Stu says January 20th 2007 at 2 24 pm Hi Raymond With all respect I don t understand your comment and I suspect you ve misunderstood the kind of resource I m asking for I don t understand how you can say that corporates don t care what language a product is written in when that s exactly the problem I m asking for a resource to help tackle As a former manager with a major corporate I can categorically state from the other side of the fence that corporates really do care when it comes to major software purchases that runs on its own dedicated hardware which is the level we sell at work I m all for a community resource but the resource I m after is specifically the business case for PHP The audience of such a case isn t developers although it needs to include them It isn t necessarily the IT Department although again it needs to include them The audience of the business case are the folks who sign the purchase order or who sit on the boards deciding on the results of their tender process I agree that there needs to be advocacy for PHP the language and I m currently planning a blog article about that but that isn t the resource I m talking about in this blog article Best regards Stu Raymond Olavides says January 20th 2007 at 3 07 pm Hi Stu Terribly sorry to have misunderstood your point and went off topic Thanks for the kind clarification Rick says February 3rd 2007 at 1 42 pm I m not opposed to a why PHP document being written I m aware that the rest of this comment may not allude to that however I m very much in favour of PHP in the development world when it makes sense As a matter of fact I m not even talking about the why PHP document but what I m going off on a diatribe about is semi related and in some part based on comments to this blog posting There are
