Dan Connolly's tinkering lab notebook

PHP angst

The features of the systems that people build with PHP cannot be deined. We're pretty committed to drupal for this breadcrumbs blog.

I doubt I'll be doing much hacking on it, though. In part that's a good thing... hacking on your publishing infrastructure can be a real distraction. It's best to be a plain old customer some times.

But I can't get rid of the feeling that I'd rather we weren't using PHP. Neither PHP nor javascript meets the unambiguity requirement that I think is critical for software engineering in the large.
