When it comes to web development people are in quite a few camps when it comes to web development languages. For the most part the major camps right now are .NET, Java, Ruby, Python and PHP. For many PHP is the lowest web development language on the list and some developers are somewhat embarrassed to admit that they program in it (many think it is a language for hacks).
I personally think that if PHP is done properly, it is a very good viable web development language. The question is if you think that PHP is good enough for your startup. Would you be embarrassed when others ask what your site or application is written in, or would you proudly proclaim that you used PHP?
The startup ChartBoost that deals in on-line advertising has written a good post about this subject. They use PHP and it is interesting to read their thoughts.
Below is an excerpt from the post.
