It is far more efficient? This really depends on context - it's more efficient inasmuch as the programmer's time is concerned, but it definitely is not when compared to actually loading pages, since PHP files incur an additional server overhead over regular html files. So fix it ;) --John Bessa 18:57, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Superior to raw HTML???
I have difficulty digesting this statement. PHP, when it comes to web sites themselves, is not mutually exclusive of (X)HTML, and without it, there would be no web. It's hard to swallow the statement that PHP is superior to something that it is dependent upon. It's like comparing apples to oranges. True, PHP can write CGI scripts and other server-level apps, but this completely removes it from the comparison altogether.

Teaching PHP through Mediawiki
PHP is designed as a users' language, as opposed to Java. Both in my opinion are built on Perl, where Java also takes from Smalltalk (as did Apple and Microsoft, according to Stallman). Whither whence Perl?
Since I could actually use both PHP knowledge and mw experience, it would make sense to me to see PHP taught through a Mediawiki programming class where the mw components are explained as PHP fundamentals.
PHP as EAI, or enterprise application integration
PHP is also in the "EAI" class, or enterprise application and data integration initiatives, so getting the PHP EAI people into the mix to explain how this works would be appropriate.
Research/peer review of PHP website architectures?
Does anyone have any interest in helping to start some sort of research project (for want of a better name) centred around a) descriptions of different possible PHP website architechtures; and b) critiques of these? I think every PHP coder has probably at some point come up with their own way of doing things (they generally then learn more and move on to one of the big standard frameworks, like Zend or a CMS or something), and that there is a lot to be learnt from analysis of these personal designs and other PHP architectures. The architectures/frameworks I'm talking about don't have to be totally general (i.e. a description of the workings of someone's blogging system would be welcome), nor small and personal (why not describe and critique the architecture of Wordpress, for instance?). Anyway, I just thought I'd throw this out there to see if there's any interest and whether it'd be welcome on Wikiversity (perhaps at PHP architectures, with a subpage for each one?). — Sam Wilson ( Talk • Contribs ) … 08:44, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
