    I personally don’t hate php, I actually find it to be very useful. Although I don’t really like working with databases in general, not every php thing requires a database. I think I don’t like databases because they’re data centric by nature and not very visual in comparison to html, css, php and js, and I’m into the artsy side of things. ^^

    What I’ve been hearing for years is that js isn’t safe, that it’s too easy to manipulate because it’s not server side and that many people choose to disable it. Even after hearing that I still appreciate the interactivity of js and because I prefer to write my own scripts, that will make them stay simple, but also I’ll know exactly what goes into them. Smaller scripts are easier to keep track of and keep secure, and for what I like to do, which is mostly front end, it’s all I really need. XD

    I’ve seen a shift in recent years, that has brought more openness to js. I’m not sure if browsers have become better or if js has received more recognition for it’s interactive usefulness. 😀

      Javascript really evolved big time with all those crazy frameworks out there (jQuery, Angular, Meteor, React, etc.), but it’s still a front-end/client-side language. What only makes js become backend is Node.js (with the database being Mongo DB). I also like flat-file PHP scripts, as they are more secure than the ones backed up by databases like mySQL (though databases are actually easy to learn. I found them easier to understand than PHP LOL :D). But PHP 5.3+ and PHP 7 made the database security a little bit better with the introduction of mysqli and PDO drivers. A lot of the known small PHP scripts like Enthusiast still have the old mysql driver in them which is now deprecated because of its insecurity. Another reason why I want to learn PHP aside from understanding WordPress theming better LOL.

      It would be nice though if more shared/VPS hosting sites would provide more support for other languages like Ruby, Python, Go, etc. Most professional developers purchase cloud hosting for their servers because cloud hosting supports all languages, but they’re pretty pricey.

        I remember first starting out with Java Script to make mini games. XD They were small and simple, but I had fun making them. One of these days I need to study more JS, one day when days last 50 hours. ^^;;

          I heard that Javascript is easier now with those numerous frameworks like Angular, React, etc. I actually saw someone trying to write a CMS/blogging script that’s completely made out of Javascript (node.js) and MongoDB, but I don’t know the progress of that now. ^^ You should start making games again. I just purchased a Unity Engine class at Udemy for $10 (on sale) LOL. ^^
