“hello shoe, meet the other foot.”

the guys who founded zend used to get hot under the collar because they believed they weren’t getting the recognition they deserved for php, whereas rasmus was more frequently quoted, interviewed, and credited. “Andi and I created the language in 1997, when we needed a solution to implement a shopping cart project for University. Some ideas were borrowed from PHP/FI, a tool that we tried to use beforehand, but that proved to be far too limited and unreliable for our purposes.” (via linux today.)


I like the way that the linux today article links to "Related Story: ZDNet Australia: PHP Creator: Rasmus Lerdorf(Jan 31, 2003)"
