HI Heidi,

Thanks for your post. I agree with everything you said about PHP including “the ease of the language means that it is often poorly written.” I think the ease of the language is also one reason that PHP is used so much across the web. It has a relatively low maintenance burden because unlike many other languages pretty much all shared web hosting providers have PHP pre-configured so all you have to do is upload PHP files alongside your HTML files and it will just work for the most part. This is a big difference in comparison to languages like node.js or Go where you have to start the program running and then figure out how to keep it running 24/7.

Thanks, Eddie
