I never said it was either. (Isn't this a Python forum...)
Which is why so many modern developers like Ruby On Rails, Python, etc.
If you want to really learn OOP, why do it in PHP?
I think it is time for me to step out of my conform zone...
One of my final wishes before death is to conquer OOP.
I'm not allergic to it, I just know it is my eternal Achilles Heal.
v2.0 is almost done. Nothing "cute" or "dreamt" there.
Obviously my site will continue to evolve.
My point was Python is not some new, fad.
From my limited research, and one person I respect, I think Python is a stronger language when it comes to structure and OOP.
Yes, I am casually researching how to take my development skills to the next level.
When I learn OOP, I want to learn it with a language that really takes me to the next level. (I highly doubt PHP can do that.)
If I could conquer Python or Java or C++ or some other industrial-strength OO language, I think it would do worlds of good for me and my development skills.
I really like PHP, but I have always found it to be a sloppy language.
I want to get away from writing everything in one script that is my 500 or 1,000 or even 2,000 lines of code.
To accomplish this, I think I need 3 things:
1.) Learn MVC or something like it
2.) Learn OOA&D
3.) Program in a serious OO language and try to start writing code that you could get paid to do, that an entire development team could work with, and code that could be used by Google, Twitter, Amazon.com or Wall Street.
BTW, another reason for my "snobbiness", is that I hope to write my own apps for the Apple Store, and that means needing to know Objective-C, and that means I need a hell of a lot more competency than writing HTML, CSS, and PHP all in one barf script!!!
