I don’t get all the hate for PHP and at this point I am too afraid to ask.

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/ProgrammerHumor

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • fig-standards

    Standards either proposed or approved by the Framework Interop Group

    PHP really "got it's act together" in my view when packagist and composer (which are PHP's equivalent of npm) became mainstream and with the release of the PSR community standards. We were admittedly a little behind the curve with regards to package managers but with standardised formats and not having to copy and paste zip file libraries anymore, PHP received a new lease of life.

  • Packagist

    Package Repository Website - try https://packagist.com if you need your own -

  • EventMachine

    EventMachine: fast, simple event-processing library for Ruby programs

    You could also use something like EventMachine (In ruby), Twisted (Python), Node (JS) or ReactPHP (for PHP) that will use the language and turn it into a web application server, and then you'll have only one long running process that handle all your requests with shared memory. You could even use something more fancy like RoadRunner in the case of PHP.
