23:02:18@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinC, PHP <5.6, Java
23:06:24@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinFor context, I find things in Java tend to be unwieldy to run and often bloated. C & PHP are on the basis of how easy and frequently people do bad stuff with them
23:06:40@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinIn the case of C, see the MITRE top 25 link in backscroll
23:08:22@desnudopenguino:matrix.orgdesnudopenguino[m]PHP < 7
23:08:26@freenode_xbot1313:matrix.orgxbot1313LoudNoises++
23:08:58@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinphp 5.6 added a lot of good stuff, i'll give it a break
23:09:08@desnudopenguino:matrix.orgdesnudopenguino[m]yeah, but no more support :(
23:09:10@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartin e.g. password_hash
23:09:18@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinfair
23:09:28@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhothe nominal triplet was PHP, labview, and Matlab
23:09:33@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho:shrug:
23:09:34@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinredhat offers support still
23:10:24@desnudopenguino:matrix.orgdesnudopenguino[m]the worst part of PHP is the mess that comes from devs without enough experience to use it safely
23:10:50@desnudopenguino:matrix.orgdesnudopenguino[m]and the "i'll make my own framework" mindset therein
23:11:08@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinphp is sort of designed to allow that 😂
23:11:54@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibby Php was designed to generate simple HTML & kinda interact with a database
23:12:44@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibby In the same way that JS was designed to react to button presses, it's used for a lot of things it.. well.. doesn't fit
23:13:32@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibby Weak typing kinda makes sense when you're displaying things, and almost no where else. The lack of proper typing has lead to some nasty bugs
23:16:52@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibby

Anyway:

worst three production programming languages?
PHP, JS, (old) Perl

23:18:51@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibby Perl mostly because of the cognitive overhead. I can't read it, and don't really want to learn several dozen symbols/operators/paradigms to do so
23:35:38@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinI'm at 26 news feeds right now

23:48:46@jibby:matrix.jibby.orgjibbyAnd so it begins
23:53:36@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinYeah, really
23:53:51@ctmartin:matrix.orgctmartinI decided not to include planets for the time being
