PHP vs COLDFUSION

Posted 23 August 2012 - 03:57 AM

Hi Guys

I have done a vast search on the web.

But it seems as if developers are a bit biased and tend to lean more to Coldfusion.

So I want to ask this question in the what do you prefer between PHP and ColdFusion and why?

The only people you'll see preferring Coldfusion over PHP are Coldfusion users. PHP users won't tend to bother talking about Coldfusion.

Coldfusion is a complete, integrated, site development suite. It's also proprietary and has very particular server requirements. It costs nearly $1000 to play with, many thousands for more powerful options. The quantity of example code you'll find for it is low; forget full applications.

For this type of environment, you might consider ASP.NET. There are still server considerations, but the development tools are available for free and public examples are about as common as PHP.

PHP is a simple scripting language. It runs on almost all ISPs. The price is free. It is so heavily used that example code is easily found for almost any application.

Sadly, much of it is utter shit.

Most code is crap. The more inexperienced programmers, the more crap. A program can present a good face and the code quality is a mystery. The advantage of open source is that you get to see just how bad it is, close source you can only guess.
