The article on DEV titled "PHP Isn't the Worst Programming Language, So Why Do So Many People Criticize It?" by Luna Miller delves into the reasons behind the prevalent criticism of PHP despite its widespread usage and longevity in web development. Luna states that while PHP has shortcomings, such as inconsistencies and security vulnerabilities in its early versions, modern PHP frameworks and practices have addressed many of these issues, making it a viable and powerful language for web development. She attributes much of the criticism to outdated perceptions and the vocal nature of its detractors within the developer community, urging for a more nuanced evaluation of PHP's strengths and weaknesses.
