Why PHP Makes Me Sad

Moderated by: Eric Wastl

PHP makes me (and many other developers) sad. This will be a technical look at a few specific sources of particular sadnesses. I will cover several of the issues from my site phpsadness.com – how they work, why it matters, when and how they were fixed (if they were), examples of code that triggers the issues, etc.
