Does PHP deserve all the hate?
So I've started attending college the past year and have taken fond of web development, and learned a moderate amount of front-end development. During the summer I want to expand those skills and start learning some server-side programming. I have read the features of a few languages and seem to like PHP and what it offers especially since it's so widely supported and has many frameworks such as Laravel. Howeveeeer I seem to encounter a lot of hate towards the language and not just in the meme way, and many people defending it saying it's fixed some of it's issues throughout the years. Do you guys think it's a worthwhile language for a web development newbie to learn, also if so should I jump in straight to PHP7?
